Needs to be the only dog
Fostered in Portland, OR
Hello there! My name is Stella. I arrived to NWBR when I had a disagreement with the other dog in the home. My owners surrendered me so they could find me the perfect home where I won't have to share with other dogs. I'm also not too keen on sharing with the feline kind. I'd rather just be your one and only so I can be doted on like a little princess. When I go for a walk with my foster mom, I walk nicely on leash. If we come across dogs that throw a hissy fit through the fence, I sometimes forget my manners. But if we keep walking, I'll easily redirect. It's just so hard for me to handle those dogs being jealous of my walk and yelling at me through the fence. I am mildly curious about the chickens in the neighbor's yard but when I see a squirrel, I'm more than ready to race it up the tree.
I love people. I'm not shy and greets friendly strangers in full wiggle mode. While I sometimes get overly eager, I try not to jump on adults. I just love my toys and I love to play tug-o-war. I also enjoy wrestling around with my humans and playing "come catch me." All it takes to settle me down is "that's enough." After that, I'll head on over to and mellow myself out. I am very well behaved and have the run of the house when my foster mom is away. I love to snuggle next to you in bed, or on the couch and I will let you know when I need to go out. I try not to disappoint my people and definitely don't want to have accidents. You'll know I really like you if I put my feet on your shoulders and wait for a long hug.
At 50 pounds, I am a true pocket boxer. My beautiful brown eyes, sweet disposition, brindle coat and white socks will earn lots of compliments from the people I meet. Well mannered and calm by nature, I'm a quiet gal who rarely barks unless it's playtime. I would be the perfect addition to someone looking for a single dog!
If you want to make me your princes, head on over to nwboxerrescue.org/#!adoption-form/c1dw9 and start the adoption process. You won't regret it. That, I can promise.
