Thanks for advice, iv looked on petfinder but haven't really seen puppies. She is such a lovable dog, not aggressive at all, I can take food out of her mouth & she wouldnt object. she's great with kids & all people but its the bigger dogs she's afraid of. I'v taken her to classes & she learned to turn away when she sees another dog rather than barking at them & running towards them. I hope we can get over this b'cas we would love her to have a campanion. My last 2 were the best of friends & passed away at age 16yrs within 4 mths of each other. so i want Bella to have the same experience.
