Hi, friends! My name is Annabelle, and I’m a 6-year-old female Corgi mix, weighing in at 15 pounds.  I’ve come all the way from a Long Beach shelter (where I was next on the euthanasia list), and I can’t wait to find my furever family!

My health is in tip-top shape, and I’ve already been spayed.  I’m potty-trained, leash-trained, and house-trained, too.  Am I the total package, or what?

My foster mama says I’m a sweet and happy girl, with a quirky personality and lots of spunk! I love belly rubs, walks, meeting new doggie friends, and chasing birds around the yard.  I’m extremely treat-motivated, so I enjoy eating, and of course, treats.  I will be your most loyal companion, and there’s nothing that makes me happier than snuggled up in your lap on the couch. 

One thing I’m working on is my moderate separation anxiety.  I’ve been through some trauma in my life, and so I’d prefer to be my human’s side throughout the day.  I also have some trust issues with meeting new people and letting them pet me (especially on the head and around the hip area).  As such, I need very slow and gentle introductions – as well as patience! – so I have time to warm up. 

I think I would do well in a home where I was the only dog, but I think having another doggie sibling could help me overcome my separation anxiety issues.  I don’t think I need a backyard, but I do like to get out and about and give my little legs some exercise each day!  I’m unsure about kitties in the home, but I think I’d do just fine with kiddos who are old enough to be gentle and patient with me.

Do we sound like the perfect pair?  If so, my adoption fee is $300 and that includes spaying/neutering, shots, and microchip.  If you want to take me home, please fill out the form on the website here: https://theanimalpad.org/adoption-application/.  You can also check me out on Instagram at @adopta_belle.
