Bella is an Australian cattle dog mix who is about 5 years old and petite for her breed at less than 35 pounds.
Dark-colored cattle dogs, such as Bella, are also known as blue heelers. "Aussies" are among the most intelligent canines. Highly trainable, energetic and excellent in agility events, they keep track of their human "herd" in a home environment.
Bella behaves well on leash, while remaining alert and interested in everything happening around her. She is healthy, apart from a skin condition currently being treated that could have resulted from neglect. Those white flecks in her black and tan coat are typical of her breed and are not age-related graying.
Bella means "beautiful" in Italian and this girl possesses a quiet beauty that could prove irresistible.
