Bella has been adopted!

Age: 8 yo
Weight: 4.75 lbs.
Location: Toronto
Adoption donation: $350


Beautiful Bella found her way to CCRT as the result of an owner surrender.  This cutie pie is 8 years young and is doing well in her foster home.  She LOVES to play with her squeaky toys.  She actually loves to play with any toy that makes noise.  Her foster Mom has noted that she is her happiest when she’s pouncing on or retrieving her toys.

Bella is fairly well house trained although there have been a couple of accidents in her foster home.  With the sudden change in her routine and getting accustomed to a new living environment, this is understandable.  Her previous family advised that Bella is pee pad trained but  she has not used a pee pad in her foster home so we are unable to confirm if she is pee pad trained at this time.

Beautiful Bellla walks beautifully on leash.  She doesn’t mind humans but minds other dogs and will growl at them.  She would do best if her future family does not have other dogs, cats, or young children in the home.  That being said, she has one female canine friend who lives close to her foster home who she really likes and gets along well with.  She may just be very choosy when it comes to canine companionship but she LOVES people so someone who works from home or who is home all day/most of the day would be ideal for her.  She is a sweet, happy dog who adores being with her people.

Bella has allergies that can cause severe itching.  She is on medication (Apoquel) to treat this, which is working well to control them.  She feels well on this medication and is scratching very little if at all.  We are still trying to uncover the cause – environmental or food.  Time will tell.  She has some missing hair around her right eye due to irritation from her allergies but it is now growing back as they are under control.  We can’t help but notice that our little Beauty looks pirate-like at the moment while the hair is filling in.

Bella has a grade 2-3 heart murmur but is asymptomatic at this time and requires no treatment.

If you would like to adopt a cuddly, loving companion who will make you smile daily as she happily pounces on her toys and by simply just being Bella, please fill out an adoption application for her. You can also purchase a sweater and/or blanket for her, or any of our other foster dogs.  Please consider becoming a CCRT Sponsorship Angel for any of our fosters, by making a donation towards their care.
