She’s very clever and well-behaved in the home but would like a home with no other pets. She loves human company the most and is a real lap-dog; enjoying strokes and lots of fuss. She’s very playful and loves to play fetch and go on long walks. For more about Bella please contact RSPCA Northamptonshire branch by calling 01604 881317.
