Stella, 7, is as sweet as can be and probably the snuggliest, most affectionate pitbull we've ever met! And that’s a tough contest! She gets along with people of all ages – everyone who meets her absolutely LOVES her. The vet who has taken care of her begins every phone call with us by saying, “She’s such a nice, nice dog.” Stella would be a GREAT companion for any family – she would do well in either an active or laid-back home and is perfectly happy going on a long walk OR falling asleep in your lap. It doesn’t matter to her what you’re doing, as long as she is with people. Stella can get a little nervous when left alone, but this is totally manageable since she crates just fine and has medication to help calm her in these situations as well.
She needs some help, though! She’s been with us for nearly 9 months with little to no interest from homes that would be a good fit given her background. Although she’s a total lover, we understand where people could be hesitant to adopt. You see, Stella has had some unfortunate encounters with other dogs and cats that have left her unsure and nervous at times around them; therefore, we will only adopt to a home without any other animals (cats or dogs). Some may look at this as being a negative but it only means that Stella has more love to give to her humans! She’s SUCH a loving goober, and we truly hate to think this is what’s keeping her from finally finding her forever. She’s a beautiful girl and a big goofball – she’s got a lot of love, life and laughs left to share with someone. She likes bananas and carrots and will happily accept any attention. Her favorite things to do in the house are giving kisses and cuddling!
Stella’s past wasn’t her fault. Her forever is out there. Please help us spread the word so her new family can find her. She’s been waiting too long.
Stella's adoption fee is $175. Discount available for seniors (65+) and veterans. All Grey Face seniors receive an exam, vaccinations, blood work, a microchip and are spayed/neutered before leaving our care. Fill out an adoption application at greyfacerescue.org/adoption-application
