Hi! I’m sweet Stella. I’m a very shy long haired mini. I was a former puppy mill dog, but am slowly learning how to be a regular pup.

I am just learning how to go outside to pee, so I still have a few accidents. I will definitely need some patience from my forever home as I keep learning. I like having company, so another dog is a must! I’m good with cats, am very shy around new people, and I haven’t met any kids yet.

I sleep in a crate at night, and as long as I’m in the same room as you, I’ve been good. Being alone in the dark makes me quite nervous. I am getting used to having a human with me, so I have some separating anxiety when I’m left alone. The company of my foster buddies does help me though.

I like to snuggle on the couch, I travel in the car well, I’m still learning how to play with toys and I’m not sure yet how to walk on a leash. I need lots of practice still, but, I’ve only been in a house for a little while, everything is new and exciting!

Despite my past, my tail is always wagging, I’m such a happy girl, and would be happy to meet you!
