Stella was pulled from a high kill pound in Gary, Ind., with just minutes to spare. She was to be euthanized that day if no one could come save her immediately.
The rescue that pulled her had a foster very willing to take her in, while they searched for her a new permanent home. Unfortunately, things didn’t start out too smooth for sweet Stella. She was fostered at a facility that had too many stressors for Stella. It was too much, too soon.
The rescue group decided that they did not have a place for her and did not know what to do with her. They decided they would have to euthanize her. But, another rescue found out about Stella’s plight and, after an evaluation, decided that Stella was just too stressed in her environment and was a really good girl with no aggression toward people.
Stella was moved into a new foster home with kids – that is how we knew she LOVES kids – but this is also how we found out she hunts cats. She will need a forever home with NO small furry anything. Or at least be kept away from them.
Stella does not like cats and with winter coming she needs a foster or adoption where she can be warm and snuggly on a couch next to her human.
Stella is a beautiful mix of blue heeler, cattle dog, Labrador and maybe a spaniel mix. She has a high prey drive and can do a perfect point!
Stella is about 1 1/2 years old, about 45 pounds, playful, housetrained and walks well on a leash. She is UTD on shots (including rabies). She is spayed, heartworm negative and on preventative medicine, and she is mircochipped.
She is a sweet girl that deserves a wonderful home. She loves children, and other dogs her size or larger. She was fostered with children and a large Labrador. But Stella absolutely hates cats, dogs smaller than her, rodents and any small furry thing. She also loves to give affection and kisses.
Is there anyone out there who can give sweet Stella the time, attention and love she deserves?
