My story

Stella was adopted from us three years ago as a young 1.5-year-old dog ready to live the best years of her life with her “forever” family. Yesterday, she was surrendered back to Home for Good Dog Rescue because her owner was “moving”. What we were not prepared for was the shape that Stella was in upon surrender.
We came to find out that Stella was tied out and left outside on a cable tie forced to weather the elements for three full years. She was returned in awful condition. She is suffering from a chronic untreated double ear infection which we know has been left untreated for years. Her ears are so raw and scabbed over that the surrounding skin has become hard to the touch. The bottoms of her paws and in between her paw pads were also raw from the conditions she endured outdoors all this time.

Poor Stella was not once socialized with another dog after being adopted or exposed to anything else other than the outdoor cable wire she was chained to. We cannot comprehend what kind of human could do such a thing. The only human she ever knew, failed her.

Stella is now resting comfortably in her loving foster home. She is now feeling a warm and plush bed for the first time and what true love from a human really is. Stella is also on the proper antibiotic & anti-fungal regimen in order to clear her chronic ear infections.

Stella is on the search for a FOREVER home where she will be cherished, spoiled, and a part of a family. Her fosters say: “We can’t say enough good things about Stella…this sweet girl has been through so much yet she is the most loving and gentle dog. She adores snuggling up next to her people and getting lots of well-deserved love and attention. Stella is impeccably behaved. She is housebroken and loves to go for leash walks, she is crate trained and she is super calm in the house. ⭐️ Bonuses: Stella loves to play ball and knows how to “give” when she returns the ball to you. Stella also loves riding in the car ⭐️ Anyone who adopts her will truly be lucky 💕”

Because of Stella’s awful past, she needs to go to a home where she will be the only dog in the household and the center of attention. She will make SUCH a great companion. Stella is 4.5 years old and fully grown at about 54 pounds.

Stella is spayed, up-to-date on vaccinations, and microchipped.

Home for Good Dog Rescue (HFGDR) is a 100 percent foster-based rescue located in Summit with offices in Berkeley Heights, NJ. All of our dogs live in loving local foster homes until they find forever families of their own. Our fosters begin basic training, housebreaking, and leash walking skills to help pair you with the perfect pup for life!

Additional adoption info

Are you interested in adopting one of our rescued puppies or dogs? Great! At Home for Good Dog Rescue, we strive to find you a perfect canine match. In order to do so, we need to learn a little bit about you and your lifestyle. We don’t mean to pry or be nosey, but we must ensure that our rescues are being placed in the best possible home or situation. The following is important information regarding our adoption process, policies, and procedures. Please read each point over thoroughly before submitting your application. 1. All potential adopters must fill out an online adoption application. We have volunteers who work from home to process your application. Please be patient. The application process typically takes 2-5 days. Please fill out the application completely and honestly in order to ensure that your application will be completed in a timely manner. 2. Our volunteers will be contacting all of your references, including your Veterinarian (if applicable) and landlord (if applicable), so please notify them prior to submitting your application to speed up the process. Be sure to check your email, including Spam folder, for a response from Home for Good. All communications regarding your application must go through email. 3. Any pets currently in your household must be up to date with vaccines, including Rabies, and be seen for annual wellness visits. We DO NOT adopt dogs out to homes with un-altered animals. 4. All dogs placed by HFGD are to be house dogs. NO dog will be placed in a home where they will be outside-only dogs or farm dogs. HFGD reserves the right to schedule a home visit to ensure the safety of our rescues. 5. Approved applications are valid for 6 months. After 6 months, you must re-submit an application. This applies to previous adopters as well. 6. Please keep in mind that HFGD may have already received applications on the dog you are interested in. For this reason, the dog you are interested in may not be available once your application is finished being processed. 7. Upon approval and acceptance, you may schedule a Meet and Greet via email only with the dog of your choice, subject to availability. Meet and Greets will be scheduled in the order they are requested. If the dog you applied for is no longer available or is not the right match for your home, HFGD will work with you to find another dog that will be a great fit for you and your family. 8. Please be advised that your entire household, including any canines or caregivers, must be present for the Meet and Greet. HFGD does not allow adoptions as gifts or surprises. The entire household must meet the dog and be in agreement to bringing the dog into the home. NO EXCEPTIONS. 9. Approved Applications do not guarantee adoption. A meet and greet is the final step in the placement of our dogs. HFGD wants to ensure that it is the right fit for all humans and canines involved.
