Belle in need of gentle hands

Belle was surrendered due to rental property regulations.

Belle was surrendered due to rental property regulations.

Belle the female 22-month-old Labrador/Maremma is very timid and gentle with people so she'll need a quiet and gentle owner who will allow her to slowly get to know them.

She shakes her paw and then she will enjoy a pat. She prefers to eat her food alone and won't eat if you are too close. Belle is fine with other dogs of all sizes and breeds. She walks quite well on a lead and never left her previous owner's side when walking off lead.

Unfortunately her rental property didn't allow dogs so she had to be surrendered. If you can help Belle gain some confidence and trust, call Animal Welfare League Far South Coast on 0400 372 609.

Cost to adopt dogs is $350 desexed, chipped, vaccinated, worm, flea and tick treated & vet checked. Check Facebook, www.facebook.com/AnimalWelfareLeagueFarSouthCoastBranch, for details of other animals available.
