Stella is a sweet, dynamo puppy. She demonstrates all the qualities you would expect in a true border collie. She can be timid with new settings, new people, and new noises, yet once she gets going, she is confident, playful, and assertive. She needs someone who knows herding dogs and can work with her to direct her drive in the appropriate ways.
Stella is great with other dogs, and wants to play and be with them constantly. She can be intense, and yet sweet the next moment. She loves her human family and likes to be right by their side. Stella loves to give kisses and snuggle and is a Velcro dog with her pack, including the people and animals she considers family.
Stella loves to play tug of war, chase a stick, and chew on everything. She is working on her manners, including walking on a leash, and is almost house trained. A busy girl, she needs exercise every day. At 6 months old, she can keep up with a 3-4 mile hike like the adult dogs and isn’t tired when she gets home. She loves to play with the hose, loves water, and has gone swimming in a lake.
Stella would do best with a family that has another dog and requires a home with a physical, fenced yard. She would be an ideal candidate for tricks, agility, or other mentally challenging work. Given Stella is an active herder, she needs a home without young children and cannot be in an apartment.
Stella is being fostered in Atlanta. If you think she might be the right pup for you, please fill out an application.
