My name is Stella. I am a 60lb senior(7yrs old or more) English bulldog mix.
What am I looking for in a home? Great question, so glad you asked. I am hoping to find an adult only home that I can chill out in. I need my relaxing “me” time to be the most comfortable.
My foster parents said that I did not have any issues around food. In fact, I didn’t even beg for food and they ate right in front of me in the living room. I respected their food and let them enjoy themselves. I was just thrilled to be near them and comfy cozy on my bed.
Are you wondering how I did when left alone? Not too shabby I must say. I had no issues going in the crate when asked and hanging for the few hours when they both left. Heck, I even slept there too with no issues. They did give me some soft pads in my crate so I wasn’t laying on that hard plastic surface. Man oh man my bed was comfy. My foster parents would find me all sprawled out and upside down with my legs in the air. Sometimes they even saw me kicking the air in my dreams. I wonder what I was dreaming about then? Lol I can’t remember.
Playtime, I do like tug of war but my foster parents were not a fan of that game so we opted for playing with tennis balls and that was pretty amazing. Stuffed toys they said I needed some extra supervision because I was a little tougher on the plush toys. They didn’t want me getting even the smallest piece in my belly. What great people to care about me so much. When asked, I gave up my toys like a good girl too.
Want to hear some comical things about me that my foster parents discovered? I’ve been known to imitate a seal. I gallop and flop around all over the place. My actions got a good laugh out of my foster parents. “Adorably hilarious” they said. What can I say I am a fun loving chick who aims to please.
Accidents were not an issue for me. My foster parents took me out frequently and I picked up on what they wanted pretty fast. When I needed to go I sat by the door and wouldn’t budge til they took me out. With any new pet, time should be given for the pet to adjust to the new environment and routine. I mean, in any new house someone needs to show you where the bathroom is a few times till you remember where it is to find on your own, right?
I am strong on the leash when I get focused on something like a creature but I do stop pretty good after told not to. Other than that, I walk pretty good on a leash. In the yard, I found squirrels and frogs to be very intriguing. My foster mom couldn’t believe when I got so excited when I saw such animals.
I do have an area of hair that is pretty sparse on the lower part of my back. To prevent burning on my light skin, my foster mom draped me with a blanket on sunny days. I felt like a super hero galloping around the yard on those days. Super Stella in action...saving my foster mom from wondering squirrels and frogs.
Overall, I listen pretty well. I know a bunch of commands: sit, stay, lay down, stop, no, and come when called.
In my foster home, I have been given a few options for sleeping. At night, I mostly sleep in my crate with a cushion in there. During the day they let me lay on the large ottoman. I only went up there when they laid blankets down for me and told me to go up there. I have been known to sleep on my back and from time to time have a dream or two that has made me kick my legs around like I am running...upside down in my sleep.
Am I sounding pretty good so far? Well I am pretty great however I may have one draw back...car rides. These make me a little nervous and uneasy. I sit nicely while my foster family drove but this is just not my favorite thing to do. Rolling the window down seemed to help a bit though. Once we would get to our destination, the fun was back on! I have met many new people on the road and at my foster parent’s home. All have been happy interactions. Another funny story, one time we went to a party. After a few hours, I was getting tired. I was ready to go home and go to bed. I grabbed my leash and handed to my foster mom. She got the hint and we headed home back to my comfy bed. I am so happy that my foster family just gets me and thought what I did was cute. She wanted to go home anyway. I think she was happy I gave her an excuse to go.
Now that I am approaching my golden years, I have become accustomed to the finer things in life: walks, playtime, naps, and food. Do you think we could enjoy these things together? If we sound like we could be good together, send my friends at k9stray.com an application for me and they will be in touch. Also, adopters need to be at least 21 years old, thank you.
We have exciting news to share about Stella and 4 other dogs at our rescue! They are participating in a Teacher's Pet program in which they travel twice a week to Crossroads, an at youth risk center, and are paired with a youth. They will be working with our pups on some obedience training and giving them some much needed one on one time. What a wonderful program, we are so happy about it and thrilled for our dogs.
