Bella (Freshfields Animal Rescue, Liverpool)

Bella is a 7-year-old French Bulldog who is with Freshfields Animal Rescue in Liverpool.

Bella finds herself at Freshfields as she was becoming intolerant of the young children in her home. She was very scared to find herself in rescue and it took her a few days to come out of her shell. But her sweet, playful character soon began to shine through.

Bella is particularly very fond of the female members of staff and is very affectionate and loving towards them. She does appear to be wary of men and has displayed some reactivity towards strangers visiting her previous home. Freshfields are therefore looking for an experienced home for Bella, ideally female-only, with little commotion and few visitors.

Whilst Bella’s intolerance of the children in her previous home could have been due to the discomfort she was in with her ears – see below – Freshfields are looking for a home for her where any children are aged 16+.

When Bella first arrived at Freshfields she needed to be sedated in order to have her ears investigated as they were very sore and full of scar tissue. This is an issue that appears to have been ongoing for several years and has now resulted in one of Bella’s ears being permanently bent backwards. Bella also had x-rays taken and, although her conformation is not great, she currently does not have mobility issues, however this may change as she ages.

Bella has lived with another dog but did show some possessive behaviour around food. If she is to live with another dog, her new owner must be prepared to spend several weeks integrating them and must follow all advice given.

In order to adopt Bella, you must be prepared to travel to and from Freshfields in Liverpool at least 1-2 times a week in order to form a bond with her first. The whole process could take several weeks so do consider your location and only apply if you are willing and able to do this.
