Stella was a stray in Bremer County, Iowa. She did not get claimed and her time was up. So Stella is now a Waverly Pet Rescue dog. She is now up to date on shots, dewormed, treated with Frontlline, tested heartworm negative, started on heartguard and spayed.
Stella is about 2 years old and weighs about 45 pounds. We got Stella Friday afternoon, 2 days ago. She is doing great. So happy! Lots of tail wags and kisses given. She is really sweet and fun. She likes to play by herself with toys. She has a lot of energy. She is very well mannered with feeding and taking treats, and just a good girl in general. She won't go outside on her own yet. I have to come out and stand at the door while she does her business. So far, she appears to be housebroken. She goes into her kennels with treat motivation, but doesn't like being in there. At night, it takes her a little bit to settle down, but not too long and then she is fine all night. She has already become my buddy and enjoys the pets and snuggles I give her. All in all, so far, she seems to be a great dog.
8/17/20 UPDATE: Stella has been in her foster home for over a week now. It is slow going with her and the other dog in the home. She growls and charges at the other dog. The foster home is working on trying to train her and work in her with this. They are keeping Stella and their dog away from each other. Other than that, Stella is a wonderful dog, and has become quite the big baby. I have spoiled her with attention and she loves it. She is a little unsure of new people, but with proper introduction and patience she is fine. She seems to know her name already and how to sit on command. Even if we do get her to co-mingle with our dog, I'm not sure how she would be with another dog without a lot of work. For now, we are going to say Stella needs a home with no other dogs. If things change or improve, we will update this. Stella also saw an outside farm cat and charged the cat and chased it. So a home with no cats is also needed. Since Stella came to us after being a stray, we are going to require a fenced in yard to adopt her.
Will someone please adopt Stella and give her a forever home? $175.00 adoption fee.
WE ARE A NO-KILL 501-C-3 NON-PROFIT RESCUE. All donations are tax deductible. We do not have a shelter. All pets live in foster homes. We only adopt to indoor homes. To see an animal, you must fill out an application first and then once approved, we can set up for you to meet the animal you are interested in. We do background checks on all applicants. If you have assault, domestic abuse, or drug charges please do not apply. If you have questions, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
All animals see a vet for shots and normal exams. If they appear healthy and there are no obvious health concerns, then extensive testing is not done. This is normal procedure for pet rescues and shelters.
Waverly Pet Rescue puts a lot of money into medical care for each dog and cat we take in. $350 is the average cost for basic care. This does not include if the animal had an injury, required extra flea / ear mite treatments, or needed extra days at the vet office.
