Bella * Popular Good with DogsGood with ChildrenPotties on a leashHousetrainedCrate TrainedLikes to ride in the car
Gender: Female Age: 8 years - AARB Status: Adopted

Bella is a perfectly lovely, 8-year-old beagle. She may be saving her cheekiness for her forever family but so far in her foster home, she has been a terrific guest.Bella loves people but she definitely prefers kids to adults. She absolutely LOVES children. Bella will climb into their lap and gives polite kisses. She loves belly rubs. If Bella gets the choice between hanging out with a grown-up and a kid, she picks the kid every time. She has attended several elementary school football games and enjoyed snoring in the grass and sitting on kids’ laps each time. She walks nicely on a leash and enjoys walks.

Bella’s typical day involves sleeping in, riding nicely in the car for school dropoff, sleeping on the couch until school pickup time, riding nicely in the car for pickup, playing and zooming around with her stuffed toys with her foster kids, watching them while they do homework, running around and sniffing in the yard, eating dinner, then napping on the couch until it is time to go to sleep on her bed in the bedroom at night. She would really like a family who lets her sleep in the bed because she immediately sneaks up there as soon as foster dad leaves for work. If she needs to stay home, she stays quiet in her crate, which she goes into willingly sometimes just to relax.

Bella has been a family pet in the past and has reportedly lived with cats. She is housetrained and has only had one accident since she arrived (which was her foster family’s fault). Bella currently resides with several guinea pigs, and while she mostly leaves them alone, she is not trustworthy enough yet to be left unattended in their presence.

Bella is not the beagliest of beagles – she likes to eat her food (and eat it quickly) but she is picky and isn’t a total chow hound. She is very quiet in the house but when she hears another dog outside, she may growl or bark if she hears barking. She has a very loud arrroooooo! but she rarely barks unless there is a visitor or big commotion outside. She has chased an outdoor cat and gets excited at squirrels but saves her barks for other dogs. She has great manners, knows basic commands, and is overall very polite.
