Beautiful Bella

Happy girl!

Happy girl!
Look at that face!
She looks small but is 95 lbs!
I love my people!

We have wonderful news. Bella has found her forever home. Our thanks to her new family for opening their home to this beautiful Pyr. This was her story...

Bella is a 3-4 years old, spayed female. Poor Bella has been placed by Rescue before, but has had very little luck, no fault of her own. She is currently living with her adoptive family, who adore her, but their child has health issues and after trying everything to reduce allergens, Bella will need to be rehomed. Her fur looks quite short in these photos as a result of these attempts, but she does have a full, beautiful Pyr coat.

She only needs about 2 walks daily but can hold pee for a very long time, as her family discovered as she does not like the rain. She does not pull when she walks, she will jog with you if want to go for a morning run, but she will be tired and then sleep off the exercise. She is a very lovable dog and will be a great companion and has a mild demeanour

Bella is good with cats, however, they need to be fed separately. Bella does have some issues with food aggression with other dogs, so she should be adopted to a family as the only dog. Bella has not displayed any food aggression towards humans.

Bella is up to date with all of her shots, she received her kennel cough shot this year. Bella is very well-behaved and she is a calm dog. Bella loves all humans. She will always want to be with you at your side, but if you tell her to leave and point your finger, she will walk away and wait to be called back.

Bella listens very well, she understand no and only had to be told once that she is not allowed on the bed. She thinks she is a lap dog and will sit on your lap on the couch while you read or watch TV. Bella does not beg for food while humans are eating or cooking dinner, she will lay under the table while the family eats and she will sit at attention while we cook dinner.

Bella’s adoptive family is has a message for everyone: We are going to miss Bella and wish that we could continue to keep her, she will be a great addition to any family. Can you give Bella the forever home she so very much needs?

Has Bella found a home
by: marie

My 25 yr old daughter is looking for a large dog. We currently have a Pyr and absolutely love the breed and our daughter would love one of her own.

The downside is she lives in an apartment and is a teacher so the dog would be alone from 8-4 daily. She would ensure that Bella got a nice morning walk before school and then take her to the dog park and more walks after school. Bella would have to love car rides because she would go everywhere with her mom.

Would this be a situation you could see Bella living in?

Bella still looking for a HOME
by: Anonymous

I am sad to announce that Bella is still waiting to be placed into a new home. I wish my daughter was not so sick from poor Bella. Given the choice I would love to find a new home for my teenage daughter....just kidding.

Seriously, Bella is an amazing dog. Well trained and well behaved. Her only issue is she cannot go in a home where there are other dogs.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about Bella. I know she will be a perfect dog for the right family.

Hello - we just saw your comment now. Bella is being adopted, but I am not sure if it is to your home she is going. Please feel free to contact me at 613-823-5445 after the long weekend to discuss Bella and other dogs. We actually have several that are not listed, and one that we are working on getting into care.
Take care,

Interested
by: Missy

Hello Dr. Graham,

My daughter and I ( she is 6 ) are looking to adopt and saw Bella. We would be interested in talking to you. We do not want to put Bella in a situation where she would have to be rehomed again.
Thank you.
Missy and Frances

by: Maryanne Pearce

Lori,

You sound like a wonderful home for a rescue dog. We have several that we have not been able to list on the site due to the holiday madness or the fact that they are coming to us after the holidays. Please contact me at maryanne.pearce@rogers.com and we can chat about all the dogs we have. Have a lovely holiday! Maryanne, Rescue Volunteer

Bella
by: Lori Hawley

I have been doing some research on Great Pyr's for some time now. We currently have an eleven year old male golden that we rescued as well. He is still doing great but is getting slower in his old age and on arthritist medication. He loves and protects this family, mostly our two children 11 and 6. I would prefer to rescue a wonderful dog than to purchase a new puppy. We would love to give Bella the life, love and family she deserves, I am a bit reserved about her one family dog necesssity and wonder if that could be overcome. Charlie (our dog) is not aggressive about anything but doorbells and tickling the kids. We now live on .75 acres fenced in and are retiring from the military and moving back to the gulf coast to our home with almost 2 acres in 7 months. Please note the fenced in yard is only for play time as our dog is a part of our family and will stay in the house until he or she would like to go out and then only until they choose to come back in. We are an active outdoor family, who would love the new addition and even believe it would be very beneficial to our old man.

Would appreciate some input. Thank you so much for your time.
