Stella is a beautiful 15 month-old Border Collie/Retriever mix female with a sweet disposition. She was surrendered to an overcrowded county dog shelter by her family who just said they didn’t want her anymore. Hard to believe as Stella is a really NICE dog. She deserves a family who will love her dearly and we will find that for her now that she’s with Canine Lifeline. Stella has been sweet and friendly with everyone she’s met since coming to us—both people and other dogs. While she’s young and still has lots of puppy playfulness, she also has some manners. She keeps her crate spotless so may be housetrained too although we can’t guarantee that. Stella walks pretty well on a leash and looks forward to having lots of fun adventures with her new family. She weighs about 42 pounds currently but is thin and needs to gain about 5 pounds to be at her ideal weight. Her adoption fee is $250. She’s spayed, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations including bivalent canine influenza, wormed, on flea and tick preventative, and microchipped. As part of the adoption process, all adopters must commit to a two-week adjustment period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized.
