Meet Stella!

Stella is a 18-month-old, beautiful, fun loving, and incredibly sweet, purebred Treeing Walker Coonhound. She was brought to a veterinary clinic in Mineral Wells, West Virginia as a stray.

When she got to rescue, Stella was extremely underweight and missing her entire left rear paw. Upon consultation with a specialist, it was decided that she would need the entire leg amputated. Following her successful amputation surgery, Stella is doing great on three legs. She is able to run and play just like any other young and active dog.

In fact, the only drawback is not being able to scratch her left ear, maybe you can help her with that. She was spayed and microchipped and is now ready for a permanent home.

Stella would benefit in a home that can give her a lots of attention and exercise. She cannot be left unattended outside as her nose will definitely take her far from home. She will need either a fenced in yard, or someone to walk her on a leash at least twice a day. Stella is currently being crate trained, and she is doing an outstanding job of it. She gets along well with other dogs and children. Stella lives with four cats in her foster home, and aside from wanting to chase them from time to time, does not bother them much. She is heartworm negative and current on all vaccines.

We met Stella through Pets With Disabilities. They are a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting the adoption of dogs and cats with disabilities. The organization serves as a shelter and an adoption placement aid for animals that have been injured through trauma or disabled by illness.
