Plenty of Pets

Stella is still waiting for someone with the right home to fall in love with her.

She needs an adult-only home with people who have German shepherd experience and use positive training methods, and where there are no cats or other dogs.

Stella is good in a car, enjoys being out in the snow and is very smart and spirited. She is spayed and up-to-date on vaccines.
