BELLA loves peo­ple.

She’s friendly and en­joys spend­ing time play­ing and walk­ing with her hu­mans.

Bella is an adorable dog, very pleas­ing in na­ture, obe­di­ent, af­fec­tion­ate and lov­ing.

She knows some ba­sic com­mands, on­go­ing train­ing would be some­thing that would help her to thrive. 4 Paws will help with train­ing.

Bella is suited only to a one dog home: sadly her own­ers did not so­cialise her when she was a puppy.

Bella looks a lit­tle big­ger than her ac­tual size in this photo: she's only 7.5kg. Please call 0400 251 396 or 0411 144 689 to ap­ply.

We also have many bonded pairs need­ing homes, so if you want to make your home com­plete give us a call

■ One thing 4 Paws spe­cialise in is se­nior cats and dogs.

Many peo­ple have to move into care and 4 Paws takes many of th­ese pets in.

They then stay with us in per­ma­nent care or we find them a new home. We then may well ask what is con­sid­ered a se­nior pet?

Dogs and cats are con­sid­ered se­nior from eight years up­wards.

4 Paws finds on nearly ev­ery older pet we get in there is al­ways a lot of work to be done.

Ne­glected den­tal is­sues can play a great part in a pets health and well-be­ing and can cause on­go­ing com­pli­ca­tions.

They get old just like us and will need the same help as we do.

Many vets have a se­nior pro­gram that is a good pack­age and an eco­nom­i­cal way to help your se­nior pets.

I know our vet at Nick­lin Way Vet Surgery does and it’s well re­ceived. Talk to your vet and give your se­nior pal a hand es­pe­cially with the colder weather.
