About Bully

No, despite what you might be thinking, I'm not a bully. I actually really like other cats. Dogs, that's a different story. I guess if dogs were quiet and left me alone, they might be okaky. But cats, I like those, even if I had been bullied before in a previous home. I'm a young guy, only about one and a half years old, but I have no problem sharing my room with other male cats here at the SPCA. In fact, I like to follow Henry around and headbutt him! He's a cool guy. So I would love to have a nice, confident kitty sibling ... as long as they don't steal my treats and are nice to me!

I'm actually quite the sensitive soul. I don't like loud or sudden noises, and I get stressed out when humans sneak up on me to do this thing they call "petting". I would rather humans keep their distance and throw me treats and yummy food until I decide if I want to be friends with them or not. I don't think I would like little humans very much - I understand they're even noisier than the adults and might have grabby hands! How scary!

Part of why I need a stress-free home is because the doctor who did my neuter (what was with that, by the way??) found I had a Grade 2 heart murmur. I guess it's not so bad but still, who wants to get scary news like that? My doctor tells me cats like me can still live long and healthy lives but that it is important to avoid stress triggers. But I have so many! I really don't like the shelter because it's so noisy and active. Maybe someone will take me to a quiet place, perhaps one where I can chill out and relax with a kitty sibling or two? Oh, and feed me LOTS of treats and wet food. That will definitely, definitely keep my stress levels down.

"I have been at the shelter for over a year now, and before that, I was in another shelter in Virginia. My background was actually misunderstood when I was transferred here because of a lack of paperwork, so the story the SPCA got was that I had been a severely abused puppy. Eventually, a trainer that knew me from the first shelter reached out and revealed I was actually a rescued feral puppy! Needless to say, not knowing my background was why I had a hard time making progress, but I'm a very trainable and smart girl. "I'm 3 years old, though, and have spent a lot of time not quite understanding this world I'm in and NEVER knowing what it's like to be in a real home with a family for good. So there's a lot about being a dog that I just don't know. Like how to introduce myself, or what's actually a threat or not a threat. I really don't like sudden introductions, and I am SUPER sensitive to 'vibes'. Like if you're not calm and chill with me, I just freak out because oh my dog, what am I supposed to do then? Some dogs don't like me because they think I'm too anxious, so although I like other dogs, I need careful and slow introductions so we have time to get to know each other. Actually, that introduction rule applies to all species, including people. "Once you become my friend, though, I NEVER forget you. I will smother you with my snuggles and kisses once we're friends! I love playing with my doggie friends too. I did chase a bird before in one house that gave me a shot, though it could have been because I was overstimulated from moving. It is really easy to overstimulate me, which is why I need someone super dog-savvy and able to read when I've had enough. If I can find that person, I promise, I would be worth all the investment of time and energy!" Bella is a diamond in the ruff. She desperately needs a dog-savvy home that has the time, patience and ability to work with her to earn her trust. She snuggles fiercely, plays like a champ, is highly intelligent, loves other dogs, and is very trainable. She suffers with a few behavioral issues that stems from a tough start in life. The details are muddy, but her puppyhood was not great. Bella adores most other animals and would thrive with a confident doggy mentor sibling to teach her how to 'dog' within a home. Once Bella earns your trust and understanding, she will go to the ends of her world to please and put a smile on your face with her goofy playstyle and love of the water and toys. If you feel like investing time, love, and heaps of patience and training into this gorgeous pup- it will pay tenfold. Bella has been evaluated by a professional dog trainer to determine the course of her rehabilitation plan, as most of it has been outlined above. The dog trainer determined that Bella's future family needs to be very aware of her resource-guarding and aggression that comes from that, have a plan for introducing Bella to people, animals, and anything new, and be willing to commit to work with a trainer in the long-term to help Bella find ways to better introduce and present when meeting new situations and coping in a home life. show less
