Bella: 5 months, GSP X 

This gorgeous looking young lady is Bella. Bella is a 5 month old German pointer cross cattle dog and through no fault of her own is looking for a new home.

Bella is still very much a puppy and enjoys nothing more than hanging out with the family. She has basic training and can sit, drop and stay. Bella is a very smart girl and learns quickly so would love lots of new stuff to learn. She is also toilet trained. She loves to play fetch and chase - though her favourite thing to do at the moment is steal socks from the laundry basket. She also enjoys her toys especially a Kong. Bella's unique quirk is her German pointer poise, when she is hunting insects she poses in the most perfect point position, tail up and leading foot ready to pounce - it's very cute.

Cali: 8 months, cattle dog X 

If you're looking for a loving, sweet, full-of-personality addition to your family, look no further than than the beautiful Cali.

PERSONALITY PLUS: Cali has never met a dog she doesn't love.

PERSONALITY PLUS: Cali has never met a dog she doesn't love.

Cali is an 8 month old cattle-cross-fox terrier who through no fault of her own is looking for a furever family. Cali loves cuddles and snuggles, and enjoys being curled up next to her humans watching Netflix (but she's not fussy about what she watches). She is full of energy and would suit a home with a large yard and other dogs to play with. She loves to run and play, and ADORES going on walks and playing in the dog park. She has never met a dog she doesn't love, and will benefit from ongoing socialisation.

Cali is suited to an active family who can include her in activities and outings. She loves being outside some of the time, but sleeps indoors and will only go to a home where she is welcomed inside. She adores people and needs a lot of attention and love - she would be well suited to a family with fellow dogs that she can play with through the day, or to a family that is home more often than not if she would be the only animal.

Cali is a super smart girl and already knows how to sit, stay, and wait for her food. She walks well on a leash, but will need ongoing obedience training in her new home - she is very treat motivated. She loves car rides, and is toilet trained - provided she can get outside to the toilet when she needs to.
