 Bella, formerly Tinkerbell
We adopted Bella (formerly Tinkerbell) in September 2003. She is an absolute love. Bella will be two years old in January. She is a well-packed 29 pounds. She is described as a beagle mix, but the more we get to know her the less beagle we see. We think she has some JRT and maybe some sort of herding breed in her. We just finished a beginner-level training class with her and when the other dogs were not doing what they were supposed to do, she'd try to "herd" them into it! We will be continuing training for her throughout the fall and winter. Maybe do some agility in the spring. The training really helps her confidence. She is such a character - she dances around at the door when it is time to go out and learned the sound of the "treat jar" in about one hour. She can also jump straight up about 4 feet when she is really excited. She always comes when called. She is the most snuggly dog we've ever known. All she wants is to be with her people. She is happy to just sit or lie next to us, or just be in the same room. When I am working for a long time in the kitchen, she drags her bed in from the living room and "keeps watch." If we are sitting on the couch, she loves to approach us and lay her face on our shoulder. We call this her "hug." Bella does have some separation anxiety and had a rough time at first with being left in her crate. She is making tremendous progress - she's getting better every day. She loves her sister Gracie (formerly Cher) -- our resident dog, and the two get into mischief all of the time. They're quite a pair. Bella bonded with me very quickly and I think was threatened by Gracie at first. Now that she has learned that there is enough of everything (including love) for both of them, they get along great. Thank you for helping us bring Bella into our lives!
