Meet the amazing Abella! This six year old, 60 pound Pittie Mix is an expert level cuddler searching for her forever person!
Abella, who we affectionately nicknamed Billie, is the epitome of a people pup. She loves being around everyone she meets. She wants to wiggle that cute booty into your lap and take an adorable snort filled nap! She will inch as close as possible to you, making sure at least her paw is touching you. How could anyone resist holding hands with such a sweetie? Her big brown eyes and incredible sweetness are almost too much to handle sometimes!
However, Abella’s love of people means that she also has problems with separation anxiety. This beautiful girl hates being left alone, and will become very anxious and barky when she can’t get to her person. She’s a big fan of sheltering in place and binge watching tv! Abella is currently on medication to help ease her anxiety and has been working with a positive reinforcement trainer. This smart girl absolutely loves to train! Her tail wags nonstop when she is practicing sit, lay down, paw, and come. She’s a food motivated girl and will happily show off all her knowledge for a treat! Abella needs a home with someone who isn’t gone for long periods of time and will continue her current course of training in order to help her cope with her separation issues.
Abella has fabulous leash manners and loves going for sniff filled adventures. She’s been a wonderful hiking buddy, but isn’t a big fan of running. She’d rather take her time on leisurely outings to take in all the sights and smells she can! She’s also quite content to snuggle up on a blanket in the park while you people watch together. Abella is afraid of other dogs though. When she sees another pup she gets stressed out and will either move herself away from them or lunge and bark to get them away from her. She has made great strides in her positive reinforcement training, but she still has work to do. Abella will need to be the only pet in the home, and she will need a quieter neighborhood. Loud noises do not bother this cutie, but the sounds of lots of other dogs barking would be too much for this sensitive girl to handle.
