Hi! I'm Bella!

I'm a 1-2 year old Akita that's available for adoption through Southern Akita Rescue Alliance, a program of the Big River Animal Society. I'm currently located in St. Louis, Missouri, but can be adopted out to other states. You can apply to adopt me here.

GET TO KNOW ME:

- I can be pretty shy and timid. I need a home where I can get comfy and let my personality shine! Due to my timidness and large size I'm not recommended for homes with small children.

- I'm relatively low energy in the house, I love laying around and lounging.

- I love walking! I really like sniffing too. I don't usually pull on walks and would love for my adopter to take me on lazy walks in their neighborhood so I can explore some new smells!

- I'm not big on chew toys. I like soft stuffies that I can toss around and catch. My favorite toy is a bunny that I gently carry around the house.

- I'm housebroken and good in a crate (although I take some coaxing to get in still, but we're getting there!). My upstairs neighbors also say I'm quiet in the house when my foster parents aren't around!

-I occasionally get the zoomies! I love getting hyper playing with my tennis ball or chasing my tail until I fall over in the yard.

- I'm NOT food aggressive. I gently take treats out of your hand. You can put your hand in my food bowl while I'm eating and I still won't get mad!

- I'm a good girl at the vet. I let them poke and prod me, play with my gums, paws, legs and eyes without putting up a fuss at all.

- I am a great travel companion. I LOVE car trips. I've traveled all over to states like Mississippi, Tennessee, Virginia, Maryland and Missouri!

- My foster parents live in a city. The sounds of being near a hospital, a highway and lots of people has not fazed me at all!

- I am indifferent to dogs we see on our walks. I don't bark at them, attempt to instigate or provoke reactions from them and will keep on walking.

- I could potentially be homed with a male dog after proper introductions.

- I let everyone that I meet shower me with pets and cuddles! I love being loved on.
