Isabella was rescued from the streets of Cyprus where she'd been wandering about alone for quite some time. She was incredibly thin and very frightened. Although she's now safe in the shelter and away from the dangers of being on the street, she's still enduring a very miserable life as she is bullied by the other dogs in the shelter. Her submissive, gentle and quiet nature makes her an easy target for the more confident dogs and because she's so soft she won't stand her ground.
With people, Isabella is a little nervous upon meeting strangers but loves being stroked. This quickly wins her over and she will seek attention and comfort from you as soon as she trusts you. Isabella is an extremely loyal character and would make a very devoted member of the family.
As she has a quiet nature, we think Isabella would be better suited to a home in the countryside with another dog of a similar personality. She is friendly and sociable with other dogs, and in a home environment another dog would likely improve her confidence and help her settle in more quickly. Pointers have the most wonderful natures and Isabella is no different. With some time and patience this darling girl will blossom.
