#3839 Bela

Not Available
Medium-size, Female, Adult Boxer,
Bela is up-to-date on her shots and has been spayed. She is best in a home without cats, is best in a home without small children, and is not suitable in an apartment, condo or other urban setting. Bela is currently being fostered in Rising Sun , MD.

Meet adoptable Bela who is about 5 years old, weighs 50 lbs., and she’s thought to be a Boggle (Boxer/Beagle mix). She’s very affectionate and playful with her foster parent and responds very lovingly to the slightest touch. Bela will cower from any type of negative reaction so correction must be done very gently.
She is crate-trained and house-trained, and loves to play with toys or cuddle on your lap. She gets along great with her two current dog playmates though needs a very slow introduction when meeting new dogs as well as people. Bela can not live in a home with cats.
She is protective of her house and her people, so when visitors are coming, Bela goes into her crate (very willingly), and is then introduced slowly with an appropriate meet and greet. Bela needs a special adopter, one who is dog savvy and considers themselves a good dog handler. She initially
reacts aggressively with strange people and other animals.
Bela enjoys car rides and park walks though needs very secure control due to her aggressive tendencies and strong pull.
Bela's foster parent feels that Bela would do best in a home with few short term visitors and no young children. She needs a secure yard or dog walked without many unfamiliar people or other animals around. Bela will be a fantastic dog with the right family to love her.

This dog's bio is based off the experiences of the foster and/or volunteers of OPH as well as any information that we received from the shelter or previous owner. This is very important because it means that while they may act one way in the foster’s home, you may experience something different in your home.
