Stella Rose is sweet senior cuddle bug. Whether at home or out and about, she loves to lean in for cuddles and pets, and she makes wonderful eye contact, giving her people the most loving looks.

Stella Rose is very treat-motivated, which is good because she could use some fattening up. While she's a beautiful dog and pulls off the "supermodel skinny" quite well, we'd like to see a few more pounds on her.

Stella has a nice energy level, especially for an older gal. While she loves to snuggle, she can also be quite playful, enjoys her walks and does pretty well on leash. That is unless she sees a pesky squirrel that's up to go good (and they're always up to no good), but she quickly comes back when you call her name. She's also quite friendly when meeting new people. She's house-trained and well-behaved when left home, happy to find a blanket to nap on while you're away.

Stella Rose has nothing but love to give, and she wants nothing more than to share this love with her forever people. If you could use some of that in your life, come meet this sweet girl!
