Stella is a 4 yr old petite boxer/pit mix. She is fully vetted, heartworm negative and weighs 37 pounds.
Stella was found on the streets of Houston 2 years ago and placed at a boarding facility until a permanent home could be found. She was attacked there by other dogs on several occasions and lost both of her ears.
Stella has been with her foster and original rescuer since June and is thriving. She is great with other dogs, children and in general just wants to love and be loved. Sitting on the couch with her foster mom and being petted is about her favorite thing. Stella also walks very well on a leash and loves car rides.
Stella survived on the streets and survived vicious attacks but still has a loving sweet nature and deserves a home and family of her own.
