Our Coastal Featured Dog

Our Featured Dog this month is Stella Luna!  While every one of our dogs is special, Stella Luna is very smart and has a knack for agility.

Little Miss Stella is beginning to figure out just how cute she is! This sweet, sable girl is that smart. Its hard to believe that just a short time ago her family gave her up to rescue. Why? They didn’t understand that some dogs, particularly shepherds, prefer a proper introduction when meeting new people. Not everyone enjoys a bear hug from a stranger.

When our volunteer met Stella the first time, he gave her a little space and a few minutes to warm up. Soon after he was able to walk her with ease. After a car ride to rescue, he was her best bud. Since meeting the rest of the Coastal crew, little Stella has blossomed into a happy, lovable pup.

Our volunteers soon figured out that Stella was smart as a whip. After learning to hop from one bench to another, she figured out the drill and was ready to do it again! Stella has recently tried a couple of agility classes and did very well. Got treats? Stella loves to get a treat and is very food motivated.

While she is still young, Stella would thrive with a family who can continue her socialization and training. She would not be happy left in the yard alone all day. Stella loves other dogs so a canine playmate would be ideal. Are you the family for Stella?

This amount only partially covers the cost of veterinary care, boarding fees, and other miscellaneous expenses involved in the temporary care and adoption of our dogs and is tax deductible. Prior to placement, all dogs will be spayed or neutered, receive current vaccinations, and are usually microchipped. If not, arrangements will be made on an individual basis. Special consideration may be given to those willing to adopt older dogs or dogs with physical problems.
