We’d like you to meet Bella, our Adoptable Dog of the Week from She’s an adult English Setter mix that lives in Portland, ME. Bella is already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.

Bella’s Story:

Bella is an active beautiful English Setter. She loves to run in the back yard and point at birds, but will chase flies and butterflies and be just as happy. She knows basic commands and comes when called in a fenced in area. She is not a fan of loud noises, so not sure she would “HUNT”… but she sure likes to point them out. Bella does not like to get on furniture but loves her dog beds, laundry piles or just a blanket on the floor. She gets along well with dogs of all sizes once she is acquainted with them. She is a little timid around dogs that are bigger than her when she first meets them but adjusts well after a bit. She is almost as loving as she is beautiful. She has a gentle spirit and a dainty personality. At about 40 pounds, it fits. She loves to smile and lay in the floor with her paws crossed. Her only downside is that sometimes when excited if she hasn’t been out in a while she will tinkle. Fostered in Hazel Green, AL. Transport is available to your area. She is current on all vaccines and HW and flea preventative, HW negative and spayed. She is also microchipped. For more information and to fill out an application, please email
