A new home for Stella

I am saddened as I write this. It's come a time where we need to find a new home for our sweet dog Stella. We've had her since she was 4 weeks old, my first baby. I'm posting this to all of you who are readers or those who may know someone that is looking for a dog.
We bought Stella from a woman in Stanley county. She said the litter was half Boston Terrier, half pug. That may still be the case but she resembles and acts more like a Jack Russell. She is two years old tomorrow. She is a fun-loving, sweet, playful, high energy dog. And she loves Audrey SO MUCH! She loves to lick her hands and face, she lies on the blanket with her every chance she gets. But she also thinks Audrey is able to play back with her. Today as they were playing, Stella pawed Audrey's face and left some scratch marks around her eye. She was very close to her actual eyeball. Stella would never intentionally hurt Audrey or any other baby ever. She was just merely trying to play. But for Audrey's safety, we think it best that Stella find some new playmates. It would be ideal for her to be placed in a household with children ages 3 and up. She would love another dog companion too! She plays well with any breed.

Stella is very high energy and should be walked every day which I don't usually get around to. We did buy her an electric fence so she can run freely in the back yard. She LOVES walks and LOVES riding in the car. She loves to rough-house and play tug of war. She knows how to sit, lie down and shake. She is crate trained as well. She loves to play catch and chew on bones. Her favorite toy is her little blanket that she drags around. She is also trained to go potty outside and never has accidents.
She has always gone to North Mecklenburg Animal Hospital and has seen Dr. Schaaf. Her shots were due in September. We have yet to get her up to date. We are willing to pay to bring her in again to get her shots unless her new owners would rather wait and do it themselves. She has also been fixed.
Our desire is to find a family that will love Stella as much as we do. We really do hate to see her go. She is free to anyone who will take care of her and give her a new home. Please feel free to email me if you have further questions.
