We adopted our third rescue dog Bella from RSPCA at 13 months old. She suffered from anxiety and took a couple of days before she would let us pat her . Bella was quite destructive and chewed anything plastic or rubber even the cane outdoor setting was targeted. As she wasn’t suited to dog training classes we had a trainer come to our house to give pointers . Even after 15 months Bella still doesn’t like walking around the block so we take her to places where there are no dogs. She now likes her car rides and has settled in so much she’s taken over the lounge enjoying cuddles from my husband or me. She has been a challenge but an asset as enriched our lives and helped us heal from grief of losing Sophie our previous beautiful dog. We look forward to her psycho runs around the yard as she’s happily greeting us back home because she loves our company and we love her company too.
