Humane Society of West Alabama: Talk about someone who doesn’t act their age, Miss Bella is a super dog in great shape for her age. This female 9-year-old golden retriever/Labrador loves to run and play. She is a big dog, weighing 48 pounds, and has a smooth golden-and-cream coat. Bella was an owner-surrendered dog who liked to escape from her backyard. She is such a sweet, loving dog. She loves people and children and will tolerate anything. She has nice energy and loves to walk trails and go running. She would make a great workout partner. Bella wouldn't do well in an apartment. Alas, she has always been an outside dog and likes that. She was in some type of accident as a very young puppy and her bladder has given her problems since. She will “leak” urine every now and then (that is why the previous owners kept her outside). She would make a great family dog for someone who wants a yard buddy. Bella is used to having a companion dog and gets along well with other dogs. She is doing great in her crate at night. She is getting much better about going into it and does not have any accidents in the crate, so she is good for bringing inside at night. She would probably welcome being inside with you at night and during the day as well. Please call 205-554-0011 or visit humanesocietyofwa.org to request an appointment to meet our available animals.
