About Belle

Belle is small, fluffy and looks like a little teddy bear but needs boundaries, consistency and above all, needs to be treated like a dog! If you can offer these, she will give the right person the most loveable and faithful companion.

Kindness, patience and an owner that is willing to continue her education is what this little dog needs. She can be unsure & anxious with new people in new situations. She does love her walks now and is beginning to love life again but she can pull on the lead and can bark loudly sometimes at other dogs she is not sure of. Belle is only 3kg so it's understandable that she can feel a bit overwhelmed by bigger dogs. Having said that, she is great with the dogs in the foster home and would probably do best homed with a small sized, confident but friendly male dog.

We would like a quiet adult home for Belle, with ideally a panel fenced garden for safety as she's so small. She loves company and affection and is happy to be groomed and attended to. Grooming costs need to be taken into consideration. No children. Not cat tested
