22 Feb 2017: We are still desperately looking for a foster or forever home for Stella. Stella is about 6 years old and was saved about two years ago from
death row by Second Chance Rescue. She sat in boarding for over a year and then landed what she thought was her forever home where she lived for 8 months. Stella has some uncertainty when meeting some new people and she had an incident in her home where she bit the food delivery guy. The bite was minimal and barely broke the skin but her owners decided instead of getting her the training she needed they returned her back to Second Chance Rescue. We took Stella in for training and she has been doing really well over here with us. She is actually friendly and social with people when properly introduced. She came to us with some really bad dog aggression and while she still needs to be the only dog we have gotten her reactivity under control and she has come
a long way with being able to be around other dogs. Stella needs an owner who will provide her with good leadership, structure and rules so that she can continue to flourish like she is here. She is a low key girl and enjoys taking long walks and hanging out with her people. This poor girl has been let down twice and needs someone to step up for her and give her the home she deserves. Stella is fully trained in off leash obedience and her new owners will receive free handling lessons and lifetime support from us. To apply please go to their website www.nycsecondchancerescue.org
