I’m jet black with four white paws and white bib, and I’m a slender 41 pounds. When I was found, I was covered in ticks. TALGV volunteers said I calmly let them remove each tick, even between my toes. Speaking of patience, my current roommate is a 35-pound puppy who climbs over and under me, lifting me right off my feet. Am I annoyed? Upset? Nope, I give her kisses, and she licks me back. At one year of age, I’m playful but never rough. I love all the affection I get here, and I give every bit as much as I receive. You’ll find me with my head in somebody’s lap. I aim to live up to my name. Stella means “star,” and I’ll shine brightly for you.
