This week's featured pet of the week is Bella. She is a three-month-old German Shepherd mix.
Her care taker, Joanna, said that she would be a great dog for a family, "She wants to get down and play. So as I said, somebody with young children or a farm or a fenced in yard, because she is gonna get bigger and she's gonna need room to run."
She said that a family with a lot of room to run, and young children would be a perfect fit for Bella's personality. "Very spunky. She definitely has a very spunky personality. Always wanting to jump and play," Joanna said.
But the breed of dog that Bella is isn't just fun and games. Joanna said they are very good protectors, and that's why police usually use them for K-9 units. Plus, being protective isn't the only plus to this kind of breed.
Joanna said that because they're so smart, they are easy to train. Bella is looking for a forever home.
