Stella has had a hard life.
She was used for breeding and had litter after litter of
puppies. Stella had just given birth to another litter of
puppies in the backyard when her owner was arrested and sent to
jail (we don't know the details). The backyard had no dog
house or protection for the puppies, so this devoted mother relied
on her natural instincts and dug a den in the dirt to keep the
puppies warm and safe!
With no one around to care for
them, the owner's ex-father-in-law tried to do what he could for Stella, Stella's mate Smokey, and the puppies.
When it became apparent that the owner was not going to be able to
return to care for the dogs, the relative contacted the German
The puppies all found homes
immediately. Then, Smokey found a home. That left
Stella. This loyal and devoted mother is still waiting to find her new home.
Stella is a very loving dog.
She is about 4 years old. She is very easy going, good with
kids, and has done really well at our in-store adoption
events. Stella loves to go for walks, and is quite happy
just to sit at your feet. She needs a nice, comfortable home
where her loyalty and devotion will be rewarded.
