Profile

Bella came to RAGOM from an auction and is done with the breeding life. She is now learning to enjoy security and love as a family member and likes to give soft kisses. Bella will need another confident, medium to large dog in her forever home as a role model to help her adjust to her new life. She hasn’t been tested with cats. Because fast movements startle Bella, children should be at least 13 years old. And a physical fence is required to keep Bella safe.

To understand why RAGOM will adhere to our requirements for Bella regarding children and another dog, please read about Retired Breeding Dogs.

Bella is starting to get more comfortable in the house. She has started chewing some bones and laid in the middle of the living room with the resident dogs.

When she first came to us, she was having a lot of tummy troubles. I think we now have things under control. She had a lot of different worms and has been dewormed several times. I have also changed her food to a sensitive stomach formula.

She likes to stay in her crate and only comes out when I put a leash on her and walk her out. I do leave the door open all the time.

In the evening we make her come into the living room with us and close the door to the crate so she can’t get in. Sometimes these auction dogs need a little push.

Bella is very sweet and also timid. The television is interesting to her but when something moves fast it does startle her. If she sees an animal or hears one, she gets close to check it out.

Bella is a 6-year-old Golden Retriever, turning 7 years old in April. She comes to RAGOM from an auction. She has spent her whole life as a commercial breeding dog. At auction she was advertised as being pregnant and due to have Christmas puppies. Bella has been with me for several weeks now, and she is not pregnant.

She is very timid and does spook easily. She likes to hang out in her crate where she feels safe. We leave the door open so she can come out when she wants to.

Bella finds comfort in my resident dogs and looks to them for direction. She will follow them in and out of the house.

She finds her happy when I am giving attention to the other dogs and wants to get in on the petting. She gives soft kisses and takes treats nicely.

Bella likes to be outside in the snow. She even chased down a toy. She did not bring it back but that was a big step for her.

She will need a physical fence in her forever home, another medium to large dog to help show her the way, and children should be at least 13 years old. Bella likes kids but is still so afraid of their fast movements that it would be difficult for her to be comfortable with little ones running around.
