A Pet Adoption Match! Steve and Stella!

Stella allpaws pet adoption

We love this story of Steve who used AllPaws to search for a pet to adopt. He ended up using AllPaws to adopt a dog! He used AllPaws to adopt a Boxer mix named Stella from New Jersey and he has given him a loving, forever home.

"Soooooo happy with AllPaws, they graced our home with our li'l angel Stella! After lots of searching on AllPaws, some close calls on missing adoptions along the way, we finally found our match. Stella is an incredibly loving, sweet pup who, along with her brothers, was rescued from a bad situation in South Carolina. Hugs for Hounds took her and her brothers in, cleaned them up, got them medical attention and gave them safe haven. Ultimately they wound up in North Jersey where a remarkable woman named 'Stephanie' fostered them, along with about 9 other pups. Unbelievably, Stephanie's home was incredibly clean and orderly! Impressive.

We met Stella and her brothers and just fell in love on the spot. She was almost 8 weeks old and she has the most beautiful hazel eyes that give so much warmth and love, and change colors. Hugs for Hounds' best guess as to her breed was Boxer/Lab mix; we just got a DNA test that said Stella's mostly Boxer, Chow Chow and English Foxhound. We could really care less if she's an alien from outer space, we love that pup so much!

We wanted a companion for our pup The Shark, who was a rescue a year and a half ago. The Shark is over-the-top sweet and loving! But has some separation issues and gets a little high strung. So we thought Stella, who's a little more mellow but super playful, would be a good match. Well 3 weeks in, we're off to the races! Stella's growing by leaps and bounds (and that's what she does, too, leaps and bounds) and she and The Shark are best friends and totally enjoy each other. They keep us constantly entertained and make us really happy. Stella now leads The Shark in leaf-diving, and then they roll around and make us laugh our heads off. Thanks AllPaws and Hugs for Hounds!"
