Pupdate 1: Bella is a very low energy snuggle bug. She is great at sleeping in as late as you want. Then a morning potty break, breakfast, and post-breakfast nap. I am home most days and she likes to just chill on the couch next to me. When I need to leave I have no worries about leaving her to roam free. She has about 5-10 minutes a day where she likes to wrestle and play with her toys. Bella is nervous about new people. She might bark a little or hide when someone new comes over. She is pretty easily won over with treats but still tends to just want to stay by her people. She is a big girl, with a big bark so it can be pretty scary if you don't know she is really a cowardly lion. She has met my nieces and nephews before (ages 4-8) and actually seems less nervous about them and I know she lived with two children in her surrendering home.

She is a low energy dog. She will play with other dogs in short spurts if they are around and will go on short-ish walks. She walks well on a leash and harness unless there are squirrels and then it can be kind of hard to keep her on task. She is very strong when she disagrees with you. She cries on walks if she sees other dogs and doesn't get to meet them. She does well with lots of other dogs, but not all. My best hypothesis is she might do best without puppies/younger dogs. She grew up the first 5 years of her life as an only dog, but seemed to do well with the adult dogs when she stayed with sitters.

Bella is great when left alone. She has never chewed on anything inappropriate and has had zero accidents in the house, She spends her time napping or looking out the window waiting for me to come home. As a bulldog, she will likely need a continued close eye on the health of her eyes and ears since is a little more prone to issues there (as any bulldog will be!).
