About Stella:

Stella is a medium-sized, female Hunting – Other, aged 2 years old.


Adopt Stella

We rescued Stella 6 month ago from a rural area in Eastern Bay of Plenty well known for dumping farm and hunting dogs. She was very skinny, hungry and timid. Farmers around the area confirmed that they have seen Stella for weeks but couldn’t get closer to her as she would run away being so scared. She was surviving on eating road kill and cow dung but never touched a farm animal as witnesses told us.

Stella has recovered well from her ordeal. She spend all this time with us gradually putting on weight and having a bit of respite. We truly believe she was dumped as a failed hunting dog. We can observe her on our daily forest walk and see how skilful she is sensing a possum or a rabbit.

Stella is approximately one and a half years old Greyhound cross. She is athletic, loves being around people, very trainable as she is food oriented. Stella gets on well with other dogs but would be better placed in a company of a younger submissive male as she likes to be a leader. She has a very strong dislike for cats so cat free home is a must.

Stella is desexed, fully vaccinated, regularly worm/flea treated, microchipped and Animal Companion (NZCAR) registered.

If you would like to welcome Stella to your home and life please contact us to complete our adoption application.
