My story

My story

Sella came to PACK from the Xindian Animal Shelter in early October in 2022. At less than one-year-old, Sella grew tall and big, we believe she will be a dog that is adored when she’s mature. At the Xindian Animal Shelter, Sella and her roommates struggled with frequent fights. When our evaluator visited, Sella looked lonely in the small cage. The staff of the animal shelter told our evaluators that although Sella is a kid, she is big and full of energy. Sometimes Sella is too excited when people come, and her tall figure often scares away potential adopters, thus she may have to stay at the shelter for several years. PACK evaluator felt that Sella needs a socialization training just now at her age. If she misss this opportunity, it would be more difficult for Sella to adapt to family life in the future. After passing the friendliness and safety assessment, Sella meets the requirements of joining the PACK Academy. That’s why Sella is here! Shortly after just a few weeks, Sella learned the basic commands and is now adapting to life at the halfway house! Sella is working so hard and is adorable, don’t you wanna make her one of your family members?

Sella

Personality

Sella is very affectionate and active, and her attention is always on her owner at any time, showing a sense of obedience and willingness to be led. Sella is not afraid of strangers, and she is kind to them. Sella might go into your arms all of a sudden! When you are petting her, Sella may show you her belly for more petting, nothing is cuter than that! Sometimes it is not easy for Sella to calm down, so she needs a well-mannered owner to guide her, who can help her stabilize her emotions, have fun when playing, and behave when resting.

My Behavior

Sella is a foody and a fast learner. Besides, she has a vivid pair of eyebrows just like Lily Collins! (Emliy in Paris, Sella in PACK!) Despite that Sella feels anxious to new things such as elevator, noise on the streets, she believes and relys on her owner. As for touching, Sella can accept being touched all over her body, such as cutting nails, controlling her body, etc. Sella can obey and work with her owner.
