 Here is Stella to welcoming you to our home! She was a sweet lost soul when Jeremy found her in October 2008. Someone dumped her, no tags, no micro chip, nothing. Even the police told us to get her chipped and if someone came looking for her to say this was our dog and we had her chipped! She was badly beaten and her right eye shows some signs of the abuse still. It is now after a few years that she is comfortable with all of us. She rarely leaves Smokey side as he is the protector of her. He is always looking over his shoulder to make sure Stella is safe. She is a greedy little girl. She likes to push the others out of the way when it comes to treat time. She is a snapper too. You have to warn her a few times not to snap and be gentle. The others all understand that simple command. We think someone taunted her and kept her in her kennel her for days and weeks on end! She is very docile most times but often you can see the signs of abuse in simple daily fare.
We have felt very blessed to have Stella. She will lie next to you on the bed and as long as you stay close she is fine. She becomes very calm and easy going. She has some difficulty making friends with other dogs. In fact the barkers next door run along the fence and she stops and does her bathroom business so she makes sure they see! They usually run away! It is very funny.
I hope you visit Angela and join this fun Tuesday fare, Tuesday Show and Tails. This is a fun fare!

Poor baby. I understand. Those mental scars are hard to heal.

I wish more people had the room, funds, time and heart to take in an abused animal. Our Rat Terrier, Scout, was only 9 months old and had been in five different homes and abused. He will always be timid but he knows he is safe and loved now.
Stella is a beauty. I imagine if she could speak we'd hear her say:
Thank you, God.
Your Friend,

Hi Anne. Thank you so much for stopping by. I will look forward to our visits.

What a precious soul Stella is. It breaks my heart to no end when I hear about these stories. I wish I could save them ALL!
Have a wonderful week. Sue

I'm so glad that she has a home where she can feel safe now! She looks like a sweetheart! It must had been pretty bad where she was before for her to be scared at the size that she is. That's so sad. I'm glad that Stella has a new look on life now and is safe!

Tuesdays' Show & Tail!

People that beat and abuse dogs (and other pets) need to wear choker collars...
