Hi there! I'm Stella and if you're looking for your perfect dog, I may just
be her! I'm a freshly 3 year old English setter. But don't let that scare
you off! I'm just as happy laying on the couch with you as I am exploring
the park. I love people, children, other respectful dogs, and even cats!
I'm just happy to have someone to hangout with. I will go after your
chickens though...I'm a bird dog! And because I love my people so
strongly I do whine for a little while when you leave...up to 30 minutes.
Is that something you can handle? I believe with some work I would
eventually come to realize my humans always come back. I walk nicely
on my leash and I love to swim, but above all I really love snuggling. I'm
also very smart and eager to please!

I'm an excellent office dog. I like to lay at your feet and hangout while
you work.

I do have a couple minor issues. My back end has some arthritis and it
does tend to hurt a bit. Sometimes when it's really bad I growl when you
touch it, but I never bite! Because of this, I'll never be able to be a
hunting or running/mountain hiking dog, but I can still play with the
best of them! I take daily joint supplements and sometimes anti
inflammatory to manage my worst days. While I love children, I can't
promise I wont nip if they jump on my back end and hurt me.

Because I'm an English Setter, I have a high prey drive and may not do
good in an unfenced yard or a yard with a short fence. And do to my
whining while I'm alone (no home destruction just noise) I wouldn't do
too well in a rental home. Crates also make me very sad! I just want to be
with my humans!

If you're looking for a nice, affectionate and respectful dog, I'm your girl!
