Meet Stella

Hi, my name is Stella! I'm a RED pawprint, which means I need an experienced home that meets some specific criteria. Here is what would work best for me in my new home:

-Personality: Playful, affectionate, a little shy

-Can Live with Kids: Stella would do best in an adult-only home, or at least one with older, respectful, dog-savvy kids/teens who can read/respect her body language and give her space when she needs it. Recommending 14+ at this time.

-Can Live with Cats: Stella lived successfully with a cat in her previous home but previous owner reports she did enjoy chasing them from time to time. Intros to any new cats should be taken very slowly-- a confident cat who won't run if chased would likely be best.

-Can Live with Dogs: Stella could possibly live with another dog. She lived successfully with a canine companion in her previous home, however she can be fearful when meeting new dogs and takes a while to adjust to new friends.

-Can do Apartment Living: Not recommended-- a home with a yard strongly preferred!

-Potty Trained: Yes

-Bite History: No

-Positive Reward Based Obedience Classes Required: Yes, one private lesson.

-Energy Level: Medium

-Needs Medical Procedure Before Going Home: Spay/microchip
-Additional Information: Stella is a sweet, playful Rottweiler mix who would thrive in a home with a steady, predictable routine. She has been bounced around quite a bit in her young life and has been trained with punishment-based training in the past which seems to have factored into her insecurity. Stella would benefit from a calm, dog-savvy adopter who can continue working with her using positive reinforcement methods to remind her that she's safe and loved. Stella's previous owner reports that she struggles with reactivity (leash/barrier/dog) although we haven't seen much of that during her time in shelter. This sweet lil Rottie is more than ready to find a forever family of her own that will love her, treat her with kindness, and of course play fetch until their arm falls off. If Stella sounds like the perfect fit for you, submit an application to schedule an intro!

If you are interested in adopting, please fill out an application on our website ( or in person at our facility. We recommend calling into the shelter after your application has been submitted so our front desk can give you next steps on our adoption process.
