Character: Bella is small but a very feisty little Bitch, literally. ;) She has a very sporty structure and it has always been a great advantage to her. She's extremely fast , and that's why she is sometimes referred to as the "Black Lightning". She is very playfull with our own dogs but keeps them under her royal ruling, when she says enough, it IS enough. She loves running wild in the forest or on the frozen lake in the Winter, especially when not a single dog has to this day caught her. :)
Bella is very insecure with strange dogs because she was attacked twice as a pup, and I've had to work hard on her trust with me. She will tolerate other dogs, as long as they will leave her alone. Her problems still occur on training courses or competitons: if some one is fiercely playing with a toy and growling, Bella get's insecure and is sure the dog will attac her, so she will either run away or go bark at the dog.
Her main sport is agility, in which we might never compete in (due to the problem with other dogs), eventhough I registered her as a pup to be able to compete with her.
Bella is also sensitive to loud noises (gun shots, fireworks etc. ). SHe does not like children but has been taught to move away if children come to her. And if she is trapped she will bark loudly to let me know she is scared.
Bella is a very easy dog at home and otherwise, just a cuddly girl with a big heart. She has taught me so much along the way. :)
