Status: Available!!Update 6/26/2017:Stella Grace has resided with her foster family one whole year today (6/26) and she has some comments on the experience. Please don't let her lengthy stay in foster care deter you from considering her. Like many of us people, dogs also need a safe place to recover and heal. Sometimes this takes a little longer, but the wait is very worthwhile!!!For everyone' safety, and comfort, Stella requires a 6' fenced yard, a large, confident companion dog, and only children ages 10+.One year ago today, I started a very scary (but rewarding) journey! When I arrived in Minneapolis I was very nervous and didn't know how to act or even relax. I didn't like to be touched, going in and out of the house was scary, and I often refused to eat. Then, just as I was starting to settle in, I developed an infection in my tail! My poor tail kept bumping into everything! See, as I started to learn how to be a rightfully spoiled Dane, I started wagging my very long tail, and that just ended up with owies and antibiotics. "Happy tail," the vet called it. Foster mom even rigged up my tail with a pop bottle and vet wrap! Sadly, this didn't work. I was just too happy! I had an easy surgery and a much shorter tail, but it still wags enthusiastically! Well, as happy as I was, surgery was still stressful, and I started to have some more tummy troubles. After several weeks of vet appointments and extra TLC I found out I have Inflammatory Bowel Disease. This means that I'm a slightly delicate flower that can only eat special food, and have to take some steroids. I feel pretty good now, and am so grateful that my food doesn't make me sick anymore. Foster mom and the vet say it's "well managed," and I can pretty much lead a typical life of snuggles, fetch, romps, and zoomies. Speaking of my typical life, it's pretty awesome. I enjoy walks, romping with my large doggy friends, playing fetch and tug, and snuggling everyone--even if its a little warm! I would really like to find a forever family, Foster mom says her job is to help me be my best self and then find me a good match. Speaking of my best self, I'm a rockstar! I come when called, have decent leash manners, and will snuggle you as much as possible! I'm also ok with cats, love other big dogs. and am reliable when left alone free or crated! I'm even great with grooming, including baths, brushing my teeth, ear cleaning, and nail trims. Really, the only thing I'm not keen on is "sit" and "lie down" but I'm working on those. So here it is: Single female dane seeking person or family with large companion dog. Hobbies include long walks, stopping to smell the flowers, yoga, sunbathing on the patio, movies on the couch, zoomies in the mud, and significant affection!
