PURINA Pound Pups To Dog Stars


Stella - Mixed Breed (Akl)

Purina Pound Pups To Dog Stars on TV ONE and TVNZ Ondemand

ADULT – female Mixed Breed


Stella is a one and a half year old Mixed Breed girl. She is extremely friendly and affectionate. 

A concerned supporter found her wandering the streets and called us. She completed her “stray lost dog” time and was thoroughly welcomed in to the CDANZ team. She is the darling of the group.

Her foster mum says this about her: "Stellar is the sweetest, most lovable and cuddliest girl out, she has the softest personality, so willing to please and a gorgeous wiggly bum to go with it. She has a great sense of humour (or complete lack of dignity, we're never sure which!) and energy to burn, but knows how to settle nicely in the house. Stellar heels like a pro, has a beautiful neat sit, her recall is improving constantly and she knows all the other important little bits too, like waiting to eat, and sitting and waiting at the door. 

Stellar is fantastic with children, she just adores them, and is unfazed by different people, everyone is her friend. Stellar is not good with cats or livestock, and due to her poor start in life is dealing with a couple of anxiety issues. These are not a major problem and we know that with the right home and with a bit of love, time and patience, she will truly flourish to her full potential.”
