Available Dogs arrow STELLA (16-043)

Stella16-043STELLA (16-043) is a sweet, petite 11-year old girl with a lovely personality.  She is very spry and limber for her age.  Stella is wary of other dogs and chases kitties.  She would do best in a family as an only dog with someone who can be around much of the time. She has lived in a family with older children.  Stella loves attention and just being with her people.  She likes to play with her toys especially her flat snow man toy.  She likes to carry it around and never destroys it.  She also likes to carry a tennis ball and play tug of war.  Stella learns quickly, is eager to please and responds well to positive reinforcement training.  Stella rides well in the car.  She has a cute “yip” when she wants to go out or just needs some attention.  She will let us know when she is hungry by yipping and then snapping her teeth open and shut- so cute.  Stella has some arthritis in her back legs but is able to jump up on the bed and negotiate stairs without a problem.  She takes daily joint supplements which help to keep her lively and active. Stella will need regular exercise like short walks (she is still learning how to walk on a leash without pulling) or swimming.  She is fully house trained.  Stella has a beautiful face and just loves attention.  Stella is a really cute gal who just wants to make her people happy.
