May 1, 2018: Stella has been adopted!

If you’re looking for a sweet and bouncy companion, Stella might be your girl!

Stella is an affectionate and high-energy Chihuahua mix who recently came into our care after her owner passed away. She’s adjusted well to her foster home and plays well with her foster sibling, but she’s pretty excited about the prospect of finding her forever home.

Stella is only two years old and has the energy to show for it. She can play fetch forever and has discovered that she loves to romp around in the snow and catch snowballs. She’s all about her walks! She gets very excited and sometimes pulls a bit on the leash, but she’s a quick learner and will no doubt get the hang of things with some practice. Stella would definitely not complain if you had a nice fenced yard for her to run and chase her favourite squeezy ball in.

Like many Chihuahuas, Stella becomes very devoted to her person and shows mild symptoms of separation anxiety. This might be due to the unexpected passing of her owner, but it might just be part of her personality. For this reason, she needs you to be home for a good portion of the day. She cries and barks a little when her foster mom leaves, but when she comes back Stella jumps for joy and flings herself against her. Because of her energy and tendency to jump on people, a home with very small children is not recommended for Stella. She can also be a little guarded around men initially, but usually warms up
to them with the help of a little treat bribery.

When she’s not burning off some energy, Stella is all about the cuddle life. She loves to be with her foster mom and follows her everywhere, especially if it involves a snuggle on the couch. This cute blondie is very well behaved indoors. She does her business outside on walks and doesn’t mark her territory indoors. She’s comfortable around other dogs, although she is definitely a bit of an attention hog. She’s curious about cats too, although hasn’t had a ton of experience with them.

As a bonus, she sheds only minimally! If you’re looking for a fun, energetic sweetheart to keep you company, Stella wants to meet you.
