Meet Belle - $350

Belle is a unique and wonderful dog. She is a 6.5 year old 56 lb. Bassett/Lab mix who is totally laid back, intelligent, and sweet. She gets along extremely well with her foster brother, and even watches him eat from her food bowl without complaint. She is is not very food/treat motivated, but does love a "good girl" and pets a lot. So far she has done well with every dog and human she has encountered. She hasn't been around kids yet, but her gentle nature would likely make her a great family dog. She absolutely loves the dog park, and does great with any size dog. Belle just wants to be around her people, and as long as she is in the room with you, she exhibits perfect behavior. She understands that you have to work, talk on the phone, cook, and clean, and she is quiet and polite. So far she hasn't barked at all, and only growled once for a second when she felt that her brother had been threatened. She's fine with one long walk (or dog park) a day, and other than that, short purposeful walks are sufficient. She had a poop accident on her first day,, but none since. She's very quiet in the house and is content to play with her squeaky toys and cuddle or sleep. She hasn't been left alone for long periods, but we're working on increasing the time without stress. She sleeps through the night, and doesn't even hog bed space as long as she gets an occasional caress.
Belle is very intuitive and knows how to handle other dogs perfectly, mostly submissive, but stands up when appropriate. If you'd like a sweet, loving, low maintenance companion, Belle might be the one you're looking for!
