Stella is a Pit Bull / Labrador / Shar Pei mix who loves people (especially children), sticks, and treats! She is the daughter of Curley, a rescued dog. My friend found Curley on the streets of Baltimore and took her home -- she rewarded him by giving birth to eight puppies in his kitchen! I picked Stella out at two weeks because of her temperament (and white socks) and brought her home at two months. While she can be stubborn and overly enthusiastic, she is gentle with children and very cuddly and loving. She kisses everyone -- whether they like it or not -- and is in a constant state of happiness. I didn't know I could love a dog this much and although she tests me constantly with her smarts and her will, I couldn't imagine my life without her.
