My Story

Date into Rescue: 1/25/2021

Reason for being in rescue: Lovingly surrendered by owners

Special Needs: Stella is spayed, up to date on vaccines, and heartworm negative. Stella is a tripod. She lost her front left leg in an accident.

What kind of home would be best for me: Stella's ideal home is with a family that knows and loves the hound breed. Stella loves to sniff, loves to explore her fenced yard, and loves to talk to you and tell you all about it. She is not good with cats and will not be placed in a home with cats. She is fine with other dogs, but would also be happy as the only dog. Stella has never lived with children. Given her sensitivity around the amputation site, we do not recommend her for a home with children under 12.

What is my personality like: Stella has seen a lot of life in her estimated 2 short years. She was found injured in a ditch by a caring citizen. The citizen took her to the vet, where she had to have her front left leg amputated due to the injury. We suspect she may have been hit by a car, but cannot confirm this. The family adopted Stella and made her their pet. Sadly, their health began to decline rapidly during the end of 2020. They reached out to Carolina Poodle Rescue for help to find the right home for Stella.

Stella is all hound. She loves to be outside in a fenced yard, sniffing her territory and enjoying the sun. She has one heck of a nose and loves to check out new smells. Stella is a hound, and she has a voice. She is a barker that notifies you of guests, animals in the yard, and anything else that gets her attention. To know the breed is to love the baying, but she isn't well suited for an apartment. 

Stella is a wonderful dog. Her amputation site is sensitive. While not painful, Stella will growl if you touch the amputation site. Her foster mom has learned an appropriate way to pick up Stella that avoids this site. She will show the new family the right technique. Stella loves to be outside, but isn't up for long walks. She is not good with cats and has never lived with children. Stella is crate trained and leash trained. This gentle girl would love a quiet home.

How do I act when I first meet new people: Friendly

Tips and Tidbits: Stella's estimated birthday is 1/25/2019. Stella was originally found as a stray. Her age is purely an estimate based on her overall health and condition.

House trained: Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained.  A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours. We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule.

Potential Adopters

Please note - we do not ship or transport our dogs. If you are interested in adopting a dog, take a look at the distance between the dog's location and your location and make sure you are able to make the trip.

Thank you for your interest in a dog who needs a new home. This description contains all that we currently know about this dog. We have no perfect dogs - but many of our dogs have proven to be perfect for a certain someone. We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture. When screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home. You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, age, temperament, personality, etc. Our goal is to match you with the best possible pet for you and your home. We want to create furever families.
