Description: Stella is very gentle and playful. She would make a great therapy dog, as I even considered this. She is calm in the house until she wants to go outside! She will run from window to window until she is running free outside. She would prefer to be outside rather than inside. She is miss independent! She is very alert to wildlife and will point and stalk birds but I have doubts about her hunting since she startled with gun fire. She does want to play with other dogs but had been on restrictions due to her leg. Stella looks for all exits in the house and outside and with previous owner ran away three times. She walks very well on a leash and when tethered outside will just sit and observe. When she is inside and ready for bed she will go inside her crate and sleep with the door open. She has never chewed anything up or had an accident. She will toss her ball in the air and play fetch with herself. When she lays next to you she gets frisky and flops down. She appears to be smiling often, just loving life!
