This is Bella. She comes from a litter of 8 with her being the only female. She is stubborn, irritating and so into everything. She weighs 47 lbs. and is growing nicely. Everyday I tell her I'm going to rehome her. I would never for all the money in the world do that as with all her obnoxious behavior, I know in the end she will be and awesome dog and besides she is the love of our life. She bullies her brother Peanut who is an 11 yr. old Boston Bull and terrorizes the cats..............lol Her biggest problem is she thinks everyone she sees should love her when we walk. I don't like choke collars or regular collars when walking so I have a really sturdy harness I use until she learns not to pull and I don't want to hurt her neck. She has chewed all my throw rugs and chewed up cardboard, pulled out all my grass and dug holes. gggg Rugs can be replaced, grass can be replanted, poop goes in holes and covered so all is good. If, I had researched these dogs I probably wouldn't have got her, but she is mine till the day she passes and will be loved and spoiled till that day comes. Strangers love her and always tell me how beautiful she is and offer to walk her. Not in this lifetime. I guess because I'm 71 they think I can't handle her. Wrong! She is smart and a fast learner and every walk she improves. She's been to obedience school, but she was too young I think, because she only wanted to see her litter brother and make friends with all the people and other dogs. Sorry this is so long, but I waited over 48 hours to join and in a way was glad as I got to read a lot of post on here. So, thank you for reading and have a great day. And no, you can't have my Bella..............lol
On Friday she had her second grooming. I handed the groomer a written detail of what I wanted done and stood there while she read it. When I picked her up I wanted to cry. She was cut down everywhere but her ears and part of her tail to 1/4 of an inch. My paper said " Please do not cut her ears, beard, mustache or from the base of her tail down. The groomer said I stood there after she read it and told her to cut her all over to an inch. She also has big bare spots behind her ears and…Continue
I finally listened to hubby and put a gentle leader on Bella. Wow! What a difference walking is now. She walks beside me, no pulling and no stopping. I am 7th heaven and can now enjoy our walks and take more then one a day. I would tell everyone to start their puppy on a gentle leader because the difference in walking Bella is amazing.
