Georgia SPCA Pet of the Week: Bella

Georgia SPCA Pet of the Week: Bella

Hi, I'm Bella, an 8-month-old boxer mix with lots of energy and personality.

I am very smart and have learned to sit and give my paw. When my foster mom puts my food on the ground, I sit patiently and wait until she says I can eat. This is really hard for a playful dog like me, but I am a real people pleaser and love to learn and explore new things.

Squeaky toys make my day but since I am still a puppy, I can go through several a week.

I will need an active family that likes to go on daily walks and a fenced yard so I can play. I love kids and other dogs, I am house trained and I really love car rides!

If you think I could be a great addition to your family and you're willing to continue my training, give my foster mom Diana a call at 770-676-6052 and we can set up a meeting!
