MEET STELLA BELLA...
Through no fault of hers, this baby girl is an owner surrender - She is about a year old, and full grown at 30 lbs. She is a bit timid at first, but adjusts quickly once she knows she is safe. SHE IS DELIGHTFUL! She loves the interaction of other dogs -- and her ideal home would be with another dog in the home... and she loves to snuggle.
Stella is nervous at 'new' and would not do well in a highly active chaotic household. She is people and dog friendly, not sure about cats but she is leery of most men. She hardly barks - and is well behaved when left alone, so I've not been crating her. We recently took her to see our Ortho guy -- as her front legs are bowed... (?) Anyhow, our Vet feels it is a genetic condition and is not affecting her since she is not in pain and it is not affecting her running or walking... we will just keep an eye on her. However, she is pre-disposed to hip dysplasia which will end being a surgery in later years.
She has been spayed and is up to date on all vaccines. and is waiting to go to her new forever home!

NOTE: Adoption/rehoming fees are applied towards the vet bill: Exam, blood tests, vaccinations, fecal, worming, spay/neuter, and microchip.
