Meet Stella! Stella is a sweet and spunky husky girl! She unfortunately was left to fend for her self for most of her life and also was bred frequently leaving her to deal with litter after litter of puppies. This girl really would love a stable home that would put her first! Stella can get along well with other dogs given proper introduction but would do best as the sole canine in the home. She would love dog friends to hang out with, though! She has gotten into some trouble in the past with wildlife and livestock as she has very strong prey drive. Stella cannot cohabit safely with cats, small animals or livestock. Stella can be very vocal, like some huskies can be, and she has a big voice and does sometimes really like to use it! Stella requires a very secure fenced yard to keep her safe and an urban, city environment is not in the cards for her. Stella is very energetic and would make an awesome hiking and adventure buddy! She is great on leash. Put the crock pot on so you can spend all day out and about with Stella!
July update -Stella is now spayed and has filled out a bit and her coat is lusher and healthier. Staff and volunteers comment how loving and social she is, she is the first we all want to take for a walk. She can actually be quite quiet now and has found her routine comforting. She is a great companion and will no doubt make her new loving person very happy.
