Stella was someone else’s dog before she met her current mom Jenna Hardy. She suffered for a very long time before she learned the true meaning of compassion. She was just a dog until she became a valued part of a family. No one knew what exactly happened to Stella in her previous life.
But when Briana O’Leary of iPittytheBull Foundation found her, she was in a horrific state. She was malnourished, dehydrated, and had a bad knee.
Briana learned about Stella when a young girl called and let her know that there was a dog under a parked jeep. In an instant, she dropped everything she was doing and hopped drove straight to the location. When she arrived, she asked around and learned that the pitiful dog had been living in that spot for quite a while already.
The rescuer worked on gaining the dog’s trust. She didn’t want to scare her away, so she made sure to be very careful with her movements. She offered her food and assured her she’s safe with her.
Once Briana safely secured Stella, she encouraged her to walk to the car. They headed out straight to the vet, where the dog received much-needed medical attention. She had wounds all over her body and the doctors said it might take a while for her to recover. But Stella is a very resilient girl and she refused to stay at the hospital for a very long time.
Everyone was astonished by how fast Stella healed. They saw how appreciative she was for all the help she received. So once she was ready, they let her choose her own family.
Stella had a meet-and-greet with everyone who wanted to adopt her. While they seemed all ok, it was Jenna with whom she had an instant connection. Their relationship was natural, and it was meant to be.
Her life didn’t start great but because she had the will to live, Stella survived. She waited for the perfect person to come and that person came. Stella deserved a second chance at life, and she got it.
