Stella came to us after living most of her life outdoors. Her rough beginnings have only made her more appreciative of love and care. She is the sweetest girl and would love an attentive and experienced guardian that can help her learn all about this big world!
After some time in our care, Stella has started to feel much healthier and stronger and shows it on her walks! Stella is strong and will need an owner that can handle her strength and provide her plenty of exercise. Stella will also need someone who is willing to work on some training with her to teach her some basics like sitting patiently while being harnessed.
With all this new found energy, Stella will need slow and cautious introductions to new dogs as she is an excitable greeter.
Stella would love nothing more than to have a house with a yard where she could run free to exert her energy!
