Stella is a female red and white mix breed dog. She is 1-2 years old and she weighs 25 pounds. Stella is spayed and fully vaccinated including rabies. Shes heartworm negative and receiving monthly heartworm preventive. The group that came in with Stella all had demodex mange, yeast and skin infections. She is healthy and her cost is back to normal. Stella is ready for adoption.
Stella is an active, playful girl. Stella is used to being part of a pack. For this reason we think she needs a doggie friend or friends who like to romp and play. Stella is social and enjoys people and loves to get attention and belly rubs. She’s really is a beautiful girl. We have experienced one incident when she was scared at the vet’s office for her surgery and bit a worker reaching for her in the kennel. We were a bit surprised because in the process of being introduced in her foster home with adults she didn’t know, Stella did not display any aggression. Whenever a dog has a fear response to bite, we prefer a home with people ages 13 and up who can read any signs of stress and respond appropriately. We really think this would be a rare problem if it ever happens again. Stella would probably enjoy being a truck buddy or hanging outside during the day helping with the yard work or sunning with a canine buddy.
