Hello world, Bella here! I'm a super sweet pup looking for a very special family. I came to SCARS after being hit by a car. It hurt so so much and was very scary, my pelvis got broken and now I have nerve damage on one of my hind legs. I can get around ok, but I do have a limp and sometimes rest on my knuckles, so I'll need a family who can keep an eye on it and work with the vet if my foot starts to get injured further. I will also need a family who will work with me to teach me manners and how to walk on a leash. Foster mom is working with me every day and I've learned a lot of boundaries already, but I'm still full of puppy energy and will need an experienced owner. I'm doing pretty well with training, I try many tricks like sitting and laying down. I was on crate rest to heal my pelvis, so I've got kennel training down! I'm also fully house trained and have never had an accident in the house. I grew up running free and hanging with other dogs, but I am not very polite and have issues with boundaries as well as guarding, so if you do have a dog, it must be a confident male. Cats are extremely intriguing to me and they are too tempting to chase. I'm very fast despite my limp and a bit of an escape artist, so a fully fenced yard or dog run is a must! I am a very fast learner and extremely sweet. I get so excited when I meet new people that my whole body wags and I'm learning not to jump up, it's just so hard when I'm so excited! My recall is coming along nicely, so I will be a fantastic and loyal companion to someone who is willing to put the time into training me now.
