About Bella:

Bella is a medium-sized, female, huntaway heading-x puppy, aged 10 months.


Bella is a lovely tri-coloured puppy, full of life and very affectionate with her owner. I got her at 5 months from a farm looking to have her as a pet for exercise and companionship.

A bit about Bella’s personality:

She is good around the house and section and is very quiet, I can leave her for 5-6 hours without any problems. She sleeps in a kennel in my conservatory and I don’t hear a peep out of her all night. However, she is very anxious/scared around other people, including children and I think this is because she was basically tied to a kennel for the first 5 months and not socialised. She barks a bit aggressively and wants to skelter in these situations. It is going to take a long time to modify this behaviour, if at all. She shows very strong working dog tendencies and wants to round everything up and bring them to me. I feel she is best suited to a rural property with other dogs, possibly working on a farm.
