Meet Bella and Jersey

These two girls were originally adopted through DCH in 2006 and with great sadness, the owner is now surrendering the pair back to us due to health complications. Bella and Jersey 13yo bonded pair, rough and smooth collies
Bella and Jersey grew up together and share a very deep and special connection. They are very supportive of one another and a loving pair. They have different personalities that compliment each other. Both dogs are rather oblivious to other dogs, their socialising days are behind them. A "hello" sniff will suffice. They like bothering the cats, although, they'll never catch them! These two are very easy to look after as long as you give them love, attention and daily walks. They are smart and wise and a simple request will have them go to bed, finish their food or respect the house rules. They are house trained and will hold it until they are outside.
They have adapted really well and fast to their foster carer's home and never have been moody, upset nor unpleasant.

Jersey (the ginger one) is the most active of the 2. She loves going for walks (with or without Bella) and is particularly caring. She will come check on all family members to make sure they are ok and obviously, get cuddles. She is not a big eater but enjoys treats and sits on command. Very good on the lead and gentle. She will bury her head in your elbow and make funny happiness noises when joyful! The vet was impressed with her health and general state: she does not look her age! She might have issues seeing well in the dark and is cautious of dark places such as building entrances or underground passages - but who isn't!!!

Bella (the grey/white one) is in charge and her hip arthritis will not stop her chasing the cats! Although she has to take it easy and slow (very slow!), she loves going for short walks and rolling herself in the grass! She enjoys a good meal... and needs to pay attention to her waistline! Bella's condition does not affect her personality. She is a loving dog, enjoying retirement and giving all the love she has.

Bella and Jersey only want a little haven to enjoy their retirement together and be part of the family. Their adoption fee together is $250. If you'd like to meet these lovely old girls, please contact Jo on 0401 900 696‬.
