This week’s pet may have spent some time in the circus, but that just means she’ll keep you entertained. Belle is a six-year-old white and red female hound mix who may have a bit of clown in her.
A leggy girl who weighs about 45 pounds, Belle loves romping around outside in a carefree, goofy manner. Belle is a bit shy at first, doesn’t like loud noises, and is good with others taking the lead until she gets comfortable. But she is friendly, very sweet tempered and gets along well with other dogs. She has a lot to learn, including housebreaking and general obedience. Belle will also need a bit of monitoring around toys until she learns they are just for playing and not snacking. In return, Belle can teach her new family how to enjoy the simple pleasures in life.
This week, we thought we’d do a quick recap of our currently available pets, just in case you missed them. Keep in mind the list is always changing, so make sure to contact HSBC if you want to schedule a meet and greet.
