Changing Lives … One Tail at a Time …


Stella is a precious 1 1/2 year old Yellow Lab/ Golden mix who is kind, happy, affectionate and eager to please. She is about 50 lbs, and will fill out more now that she’s in a loving foster home.

Stella loves to be around people of all ages, and is also well mannered with other dogs. Her very favorite thing is belly rubs, and as soon as she is petted she will lay right down for a proper belly scratch. (It’s hard to get pictures of her sitting because she much prefers to be in prime belly rubs position)

Stella is a smart girl who already knows “sit” and “paw”. She is great at loose leash walking, and is happy to go along at whatever pace you set. She likes squeaky toys and loves to learn new things, especially when the teaching comes with lots of treats. if you toss a stuffed animal, she will retrieve it immediately…she’ll chase a ball too but she prefers the stuffed animal toys.

When Stella came to us in October, she had lost much of her fur to non-contagious mange and she was very thin. Her mange had been treated and her lovely soft yellow-gold coat was already growing in nicely. We got her a cozy coat to keep her warm as it continues to grow in. In foster care she has already put on weight and she is adjusting beautifully to the good life!

Stella likes to keep an eye on everything going on, and loves to greet people with a wiggly tail wag and a kiss. She is equally happy lounging around the house and getting belly rubs as she is out and about on a walk.

If you are looking for a love-bug who promises to be your gentle and loyal companion, Stella is the perfect golden girl for you!
