~ A rose by any other name would smell as sweet… ~Hello lovelies, it’s me, Bellarose! I’m a seven-month-old female German Shepherd, about 40 pounds, and I’m just as sweet and beautiful as my name. I’m already spayed and fully vaccinated, so I’m ready to go home with you! I’m not fully potty trained yet, but that’s something we can work on together. I am already crate trained (and don’t show any signs of separation anxiety!) and leash trained, though. I walk really well on my leash; I’m nice and calm.
I live with three other dogs right now, so you know I’m super dog friendly! Not only that, I’m cat friendly AND kid friendly too, so I’ll fit in with any kind of family. I’m a typical puppy: very high energy and enthusiastic about playtime, and I love to chew on things. But I have my calm moments as well, and I love being pet. I’m very interested in food and I’ll look for it wherever I can… so if you don’t want me to get something, put it where I can’t reach it, because you can be sure I’ll be checking the trash and counters to see if I can find some snacks! I love water too, and my foster family has a puppy pool for me to play in. Considering how sweet and playful I am, it might be hard for you to imagine the kind of history I’ve had. A rescuer from The Cantu Foundation was driving down a main road in Rosarito one day and saw a man walking me on the sidewalk. Then the man started to beat me, over and over again. The rescuer stopped his car and took me away from the bad man. It was my lucky day! No one knows how long I had been abused before then, but they all tell me that it will never happen to me again, and I’ll only know love and kindness moving forward!
My favorite things to do are chew, run, and play. My foster momma says if she could describe me in just three words, they would be “high energy puppy!” Because of this, I’d do well in a home with other animals or an active family. I can go to a home with kids, but just know that I jump sometimes! I’m working on fixing that, but until I do, parents of smaller children need to be aware that it might happen and be willing to continue working with me on my training. I currently sleep in my crate at night because I find things to chew on if I’m allowed to roam, but that’s just because I’m still a baby. I don’t mind being in my crate – my bed is in there, as well as a few toys, and that’s all I really need to be content. I have some issues with food, and if I eat around other dogs I scarf my food down to make sure they can’t take it from me. But if I’m put somewhere by myself at mealtime, like outside, I eat slowly with no concern. All things considered, I’m almost a PERFECT puppy! I’ll do my best to be a good girl for you, too! Do you think you might want to adopt me? You can fill out a form at http://www.thecantufoundation.org/adopt.html. My adoption fee is only $500, and considering how amazing I am, I’d call that a steal!
