The Rescue Story of Stella
Posted by Abby Rosenberg on July 6, 2012

This week, Erin shares the rescue story of Stella:

Stella is a lab/pit bull mix rescued from the Humane Society

We rescued Stella from our local Humane Society in April of 2011. She is a 50 pound lab/pit bull mix. She had been found as a stray in September of 2010 and was kept at the local animal shelter, and then transferred to the Humane Society after a few months, where she spent the rest of the time until we adopted her. Being in the shelter was VERY stressful on Stella, and she was very anxious and would often mess her cage. When they introduced her to us, they said she “didn’t show well.” We met her and she was VERY excited to be around us and so very cute. It was like she was asking us to take her home. My husband instantly fell in love with her, but I was a little unsure because she was a “pit bull” and I was worried about the breed because of all the bad press they get.

We decided to sleep on it, and the next day I couldn’t wait to get back to the Humane Society and get her out of there! I must say she lives up to all the stereo types of pit bulls – just not the ones that get the press! She is super affectionate, loving, loyal, smart and friendly. She is the happiest, most loving dog and I am thankful for every day with her.  She makes our lives better is so many ways, and I am so glad we could give her a loving home. She is such a cuddler, and just wants to be around you all the time. She loves everyone, but loves her mom the best

Stella is affectionate, loving, loyal, smart and friendly.

She has a goofy, weird personality, and she is very smart. I have enclosed a picture of her during a weird moment (first photo).  I am thankful we gave this pitty a chance, and didn’t let stereotypes make us miss out on her. Even my mom, who used to be terrified of pit bulls, loves her to pieces. I have a new found respect for rescue dogs and pit bulls – they’re both fabulous in my opinion!
