Bell needs to go to a very active home who can let her constantly be taken outside or she will go inside, she also needs someone who will give her lots of attention and work with her about play biting as she is learning.
She needs to play catch lots throughout the day and have someone play with her. She needs someone who understands she is a just a puppy and is still learning. She would not be good in a calm household as she doesn't like to lay down and rest or cuddle.
She also can't be in a household where she is in her cage for many hours of the day or she will relieve herself and then lay in it. She does love other dogs so having another playful dog may help her get her energy out.

Why We Love Fostering
There is a special joy in seeing the transformation from fear to trust in a foster cat’s face and posture, the first time they relax and warm up to me. There is so much comedy in a litter of crazy kittens, rollicking and tumbling, learning how to be big cats. Each foster kitty has been cared for as if they were my own, and I enjoy the confidence in the feeling that they are ready for their forever home. That is the biggest difference between choosing to adopt from a small rescue rather than a shelter, and why I love volunteering. People often ask me how I can be so strong to let such sweet kitties go to adoption, but the feeling that I have space to help another is worth the emotional goodbye. Penny is the twenty-first cat I have helped, and I am not going to stop anytime soon! Fostering for Pets Alive is by far the most rewarding volunteering I have ever done.
*** Please note that we are NOT accepting applications for the dogs listed as Coming Soon. These dogs have either yet to arrive or have only just recently arrived. Once their foster families get to know them a little better, a detailed bio outlining their personality and describing their ideal home will be posted and we will then begin accepting applications for them. ***
