Meet BELLA! This Egyptian princess has been fostered by our founder for a few months now, and both are eager to see her on her way to her furever ! BELLA was initially rescued from Egypt with the intent of being a second dog but upon arrival the family discovered that BELLA was bullying the other dog in the home and things just didn't work out.. SOS has sponsored BELLA’s time in training and she’s now in foster care where she’s showing off all the new skills she learned. BELLA is a typical terrier and is strong willed and stubborn. We’re not kidding when we say she’s a princess! She knows all her basic commands and is actually quite obedient but is fearful which makes it hard for her to listen sometimes or make the best decisions. She’ll need someone who is firm and asserts control in these situations but remains calm as she is sweet. BELLA is house broken and crate trained. BELLA’s energy level is moderate – she loves to be outdoors but she keeps @laurabye ‘s morning jogs to about 6 mins long (Laura is totally cool with this) BELLA loves the afternoon sunshine and is happy lounging with you on the back deck or at the base of a tree or inside near you, she's not picky. Bella thrives when she's got boundaries cuz this lets her know what the rules are and who to look to when she gets nervous. She’s very vocal and would do best in a home in the suburbs, somewhere with not much action as she needs time to be calm and take in her surroundings . BELLA absolutely LOVES her people and is super affectionate. She loves to give kisses and her tail wags so hard her twerk skills put Miley to shame. BELLA has made substantial progress with other dogs but still has some work to do. She is definitely a one dog gal but she is working on calming down when she sees other dogs. She does great with proper intros which means taking both dogs for a walk together before any nose to nose or nose to butt meeting and then slowly close the gap between BELLA and the other dog as they start to get more comfortable with each other. BELLA needs an owner that will continue to work with her keeping her calm on walks. This was an issue for the first week in her foster home but she’s now cool as a cucumber (for the most part). If you can give BELLA the home she’s been waiting for fill out an application!
