Stella 2

Hi my name is Estrella (aka Stella)!  I am a 8 month old Shepard mix from the lonely streets of Puerto Rico.  Thanks to Lost Dog Rescue, I was rescued and taken to a safe and warm shelter with my brother.  Because I grew up on the streets and have never had a family, people tend to scare me.  I was always yelled at and shooed off when I tried to get attention from someone or get food from all kinds of different places.  I really like other dogs and cats though because those were my only friends every day until I was rescued.   The next really cool thing that happened to me was the really nice people of the Rescue gave me to a very loving foster family so that I could get used to people, learn to go on walks on this thing they put around me so I can’t get away (which I don’t like very much, but I am getting more used to it every time we go out), and lots of other things.  I have to tell you, I love sleeping on the bed at night with them. It is so comfortable, much better than a concrete step or park bench, and my foster parents are so good that if I make a little noise they know that I have to use the bathroom!  They tell me all the time that I am going to make a great forever pup for someone special, and that when I do go to the adoption events that I should be on my best behavior and remember that no one is going to hurt me, but just want to pet me a LOT!   I’ll try and let you, but I’m still really scared of people usually.  So, please don’t think I don’t want a forever home I’m just really shy.  It just takes me longer to trust you than other doggies.   I hope to meet you soon!
