Mixed breed spayed female, 4 years old and 66 pounds.

Della come to the shelter after being attacked by another dog, sustaining wounds to her ear and nose. She received excellent veterinary care at the shelter, and now is ready for adoption. Della is one sweet girl. During her photo session, we discovered that Della really liked our photographer, Rod, and nestled next to him a lot! She was a little timid in her kennel, but easy to leash up and walk. She came right up to the strange folks in the play yard, and was polite, took treats with a gentle, soft mouth. Della knows COME and SIT, and she may be housetrained. Della reacts with caution when around sudden movement or noise. She got a bit spooked when the photographer's assistant plopped down on the ground with her (like--who IS this person?) Della needs a quiet, calm environment where she can gain confidence, and get the TLC she deserves. She met Oliver our tester dog and was fine except when he approached her too enthusiastically. For this reason we suggest she might do well in as the only dog in your home.
