Adoption Hero


Stella is an amazing dog with a difficult past. A German Shepherd mixed with Belgian Malinois, Stella is extremely smart. She is very high energy and when she loves, she loves hard. Once she feels safe with you, she will be a loyal friend.

Stella has a lot of behavioural needs that her current owner is struggling to manage. She is very reactive to other dogs, and to strangers coming into the home. She also has high energy and a high prey drive. Her current owners want Stella to have a second chance with breed-experienced owners who would be able to provide Stella the safety and stability she desperately needs.

Stella has been making progress working with a trainer to address her reactivity, and understands basic commands such as sit, down, touch, leave it, drop it, stay, etc. She is food-motivated and is able to work for kibble and treats. She also loves to play fetch (loves her balls) and flirt pole, and is slowly being socialized with more people and dogs. She needs a lot more experienced work, but she is trainable and intelligent.
