Golden Retriever
Yellow / Tan / Blond / Fawn
Bella is a gorgeous 1 yr old, 70lb pure Golden who is looking for a new family... an adult household with no other pets, childern under the age of 10, a fenced yard and folks who will work her on socialization and confidence-building. Bella will need an experienced family, committed to working with her on resource-guarding behaviors as she was given up by her new owners because she resource-guarded items, primarily food, from their other dog. She had reportedly not shown any resource-guarding with people, but when Bella went to a new home for foster to adopt, she immediately started resource-guarding a lot of things with her new parents. We have solicited the expertise assistance from our Cincinnati trainer, who says that Bella is a good dog, but needs the right home. She needs experienced pet owners who can work with her under the supervision of our trainer. As stated above, she cannot have children or other dogs in the home as her environment needs to be controlled. Bella is house and crate trained, has had obedience training and lived in a loving home that gave her all they could, but we are looking for a family or an individual willing to work with her to help her with her resource-guarding tendencies. 

Bellas new family needs to be committed to giving her the exercise and training she needs to grow up to be a well socialized girl. If you feel that you could be that special home Bella is looking for, please submit the adoption application at
