STELLA's Info...

STELLA's Story...
Stella was pulled from a high kill 'pound' in Gary, Indiana with minutes to spare. She was to be euthanized that day, if no one could come save her immediately! The rescue that pulled her had a foster very willing to take her in, while they searched for her a new permanent home.

Well, things didn't start out too smooth for sweet Stella. She was fostered at a facility that had too many stressors for Stella. It was too much, too soon. There were horses, small dogs, puppies and other dogs. She was kept separate from the other dogs for the most part, but a fight did break-out with Stella and another smaller dog. The foster did the wrong thing, by reaching in, to break up the fight and was accidently bitten on her hand. At her admittance, it was HER fault.

So with that happening, the rescue group decided that they did not have a place for her and did not know what to do with her. They decided that they would have to euthanize her. Another rescue found out about Stella’s plight and after an evaluation, decided that Stella was just too stressed in that environment and was a really good girl with no aggression toward people.

They moved her into a foster home with kids, (that is how we knew she LOVES kids) but this is also how we found out she hunts CATS. She will need a forever home with NO small furry anything. So poor Stella was moved again. She is now spending all of her time outside with a lab friend but really wants to be (and was) a house dog. Stella has been at the fosters for several months but they have now decided to get a cat. Stella does not like cats and with winter coming she needs a foster or adoption where she can be warm and snuggly on a couch next to her human.

Stella is a beautiful mix of blue heeler, cattle dog, basset hound, and pit? We are not really sure but she has a high prey drive and can do a perfect point! She is about 2 years old, about 45 pounds, playful, housetrained and walks well on a leash. She is UTD on shots (including rabies, spayed, heartworm negative and on preventative, and mircochipped. She is a sweet girl that deserves a wonderful home. She loves children, and other dogs her size or larger. She currently is fostered with children and a large Labrador. BUT Stella absolutely hates cats, dogs smaller than her, rodents and any small furry thing.

Is there anyone out there that can give sweet Stella the time, attention and love she deserves?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

STELLA, a Claypool Spaniel (Unknown Type)/American Pit Bull Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Spaniel (Unknown Type)/American Pit Bull Terrier for sale in Claypool, or seeking a Spaniel (Unknown Type)/American Pit Bull Terrier dog from a breeder in Claypool.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Claypool already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Claypool breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Spaniel (Unknown Type)/American Pit Bull Terrier breeders who help with Spaniel (Unknown Type)/American Pit Bull Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Claypool paves the way for another one to be saved.
