Stella's dad says: Stella is a very sweet and loving dog. We adopted Stella approximately 4 years ago from the Rochester Animal Services who found her as astray. Stella has been wonderful from day one. She loves people,especially kids and there were absolutely no bumps in the road during her introduction to our home, family, and friends. We often take her hiking, which is an activity she enjoys a lot. Her other favorite activities include chasing lizards, snuggling with her parents, and digging holes in the backyard. Stella is aging with grace. Besides getting a little gray and loose skin on her neck, she still is and appears in a great shape. We like to think of her as the Diane Keaton of dogs.
