Stella is a 3 year old black female with natural ears who loves to play and has energy to spare. She is friendly and meets people well. She is excitable and tends to want to jump to greet any new friends, however, we have been working on this. She will take a little time to bond with her human and until then she sometimes choose to keep her space (this seems to make her more comfortable at times); then other times when she is ready she will enjoy back scratches and belly rubs. We recently discovered that Stella loves to fetch, especially squeaky toys and she will do so until she is exhausted. She is on the thin side and could use a few more pounds. However, she is a good eater and certainly food motivated which makes her training easier. Stella is crate and house trained. She has not had contact with cats however, she has met a dog or two and shown no aggression. Her social skills need a little work as she is very playful and exuberant and sometimes misses other dog's cues when they have had enough play. She has lived with kids off all ages, the youngest being 6 months. She is getting better walking on leash as she has not had much experience with experiencing and exploring new places. Sometimes she is unsure when exploring new places and tend to pull when she is excited or nervous. Stella is a nice dog and with proper supervision she could thrive in many situations. Stella came to MAGDRL in October 2019. (2)
