All about Stella
Stella arrived in our care on October 11 and has settled into her foster home nicely.  She is a friendly gal who is well-mannered, knows basic commands, and gets along with everyone.  What a gem!

Stella knows several commands, has excellent leash manners, great off-lead recall and is an all around easy going gal.  She greets everyone with a wagging tail, and occasionally their shoe in her mouth!  Silly Stella!

She gets along well with other dogs, showing perhaps a slight preference for hanging out with male dogs over females.  Stella has been respectful around the farm animals at her foster home, even watching politely as chickens run around her.  What a good girl.

Healthwise, she has been spayed, is current on vaccines and her bloodwork is great.  Unfortunately, Stella has bilateral ruptured cruciate ligaments and will need to undergo TPLO surgery to repair her knees before she is available for adoption.  Her surgery is scheduled for late November.  She should be ready to join an adoptive home late-winter/early-spring 2019.   We will consider placing her sooner if her adopters can manage her post-op rehab and follow-up appointments.

Updates to follow.
