If Stella were on “Survivor,” why would she be voted off the island? Voted off for pooping on the beach and not picking up after herself.

If Stella had a job, what would it be? Stella is a princess and would NEVER work…unless it was as a supermodel.

Stella…Stella…Stella…..she is the most wonderful girl!  We had lost our black lab, Sadie, after 13 years….our hearts were broken into a million pieces and I couldn’t live in a house without a dog!  I searched for weeks…and came across Stella’s photo. My husband was nervous about a rescue dog that we had never met, but there was something about her sweet little face…..I had to have her. From that very first day…she fit right in!  It was like she had always lived with us….everyone thinks we rescued her, but she rescued us!

She’s even got her own blog.

You’re awesome, Stella, and we’re so happy you found a perfect forever home! Stay tuned to future posts, pups, to see how you can be featured as one of our Best Phriends.
