Stella is a woo woo woo wooer! She loves who she does & woo’s as she feels is fitting to announce herself. She loves to put her head in your lap for pets, will follow you around but she’s not clingy. If she were human, Stella would be a children's book author. Her most famous work, Oh The Places You’ll Woo, points out all the spots an adventurous Husky lady can announce herself in, and hit the New York Times bestseller list in no time flat.
Stella is a bouncy little lady who takes a bit to warm up to new people. She has preferred women to men but has made friends with several men given time, space, and understanding. She loves to go on walks, do a few yard zoomies & just hang out with her people. Stella is her foster mom’s personal assistant in the office & will hang out for hours providing moral support while she is working. While she will play & engage with the other dogs, she really prefers to just hang out & chill.
She hasn’t done a lot of outside the home travel but has been fine with the vet interactions. Stella tends to be standoffish with strangers in general but will greet visitors to the house & will jump up on those she deems friends. She’s warmed up to both house sitters and did well in boarding for a week while her foster parents were out of town. She now recognizes the woman who she boarded with & absolutely loves her!
Stella is non-reactive on leash but can be pushy with other dogs so proper introductions & a chill housemate would be her jam. She's currently living with 3 other dogs of similar size or larger who are very laid back. Her play style is very submissive with the resident dogs & additional foster. She does grumble at them about personal space issues, but none of them care so it’s not an issue.
Stella is fully potty, crate, and dog door trained. She will 100% counter surf to the best of her stubby little legs ability and the garbage can is super fun! She has mastered her basic commands, is working on more skills, and only requires simple verbal correction.
Stella is looking for a calm, chaos and child-free home with few visitors to call her own. She would do fine with another low-key neutral dog or 2 and truly wants nothing more than to lounge on the couch and be in the same room as her person. A few snuggles paired with a walk or play in the yard and even a food puzzle would totally satisfy her. If you are looking for a low maintenance, travel sized gal to document your adventures as she collects content for her next book, then look no further than Stella.
