"I may not be winning any marathons any time soon but I am sure to win the best snuggle award! If you are looking for a dog to lounge around the house while you work than I may be the girl for you.
Do not get me wrong. I sure do love to go for walks and play with my toys, but in my older age I have acquired some medical concerns that make it harder for me to go on hikes and run around. Not to worry! I am still a very happy girl and can motor along really well. They tell me I am an office favourite and I enjoy greeting everyone as they walk in!
If I sound like I could make a great addition to your family please keep reading below!"
Bella has been recently diagnosed with arthritis of the hips and hip dysplasia. Bella does require pain medication when needed, this may increase to daily if her mobility declines. With the medication she will require yearly blood work to ensure it is not causing negative effects on her liver. Bella will also require to keep her weight down so that it can keep the strain off of her hips.
She would prefer a home with children 12 years and older, and no cats/small animals.
