Looking for an active pup who lives to play? That’s our Stella, a 1 year-old Collie mix female with a beautiful long brindle coat. Stella found herself homeless at an overcrowded rural county dog shelter and made the trip to Canine Lifeline so she would have more time to find herself the perfect new home. She is one very friendly girl who’s not the least bit shy. Stella loves playing with toys and other dogs and hopes to have an overflowing toy box in her new home as well as a canine pal to have fun with. She has done very well with crate-training in her foster home so should be able to pick up the house rules in her new home quickly. Stella will need work on her leash manners but she’s very eager to please as well as very food-motivated so obedience training with her should be a rewarding experience. Stella was adopted from us in December but recently returned because she was too much puppy for her family and would also chase their cats. Stella needs a kitty-free home and someone who will be able to provide her with lots of exercise and playtime as this girl is no couch potato. Stella weighs about 25-20 pounds and 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. Please email if you’re interested in Stella. An approved application is required before we schedule meets with any of our dogs. We have no foster homes with young children so aren’t comfortable placing any of them in a home with children less than 7 years of age. We try to respond to inquiries within 72 hours so if you haven’t heard from us within that time frame, please check your junkmail or spam folder to make sure our reply hasn’t landed in there.
