Stella is 13 years old plus. She is a Missouri puppy mill survivor and has been in foster care for 5 years. She came to us with much physical and emotional damage. Stella's jaw had been broken and not repaired.
The emotional damage was even worse. To this day, she does not trust people or desire any human companionship. She will sleep on her foster mom's bed and allow her to pet her just a little.
Stella is a very sweet girl, but she is very shy and is going to need lots of patience. We think she would do best with another small dog who is friendly and confident to help her learn to trust.
Look at those eyes….she so wants to be loved, but she is so leery of love. She does not trust that the loving hand will stay.
Stella is on the short path of her journey. Are you the one that will take her paw and give her comfort until the end?
Stell is being fostered in Ohio.
If you are interested in adoption please fill out our Adoption Application. If you would like more information, please contact Lyn at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Keep in mind that we prefer to place dogs within driving distance of where they are being fostered. If someone from outside the local area is approved for adoption, they must be willing to fly in to get the dog and that can only happen if the dog is stable enough to travel in the cabin with the passenger.
