Stella has come into WARS after being found as a stray and sadly never claimed. She is a friendly girl who always likes to meet new people. She does not cope too well in kennel, seemingly showing sign of separation anxiety, she is much happier when she is around people. We don’t think poor Stella has had the best start in life before she was picked up as a stray. Whilst she just loves the company of humans, she does not cope well around other dogs. This is something we are managing here with good walks away from other dogs, however, she has walked with dogs before, so she is a little selective in her reactions. Stella would make a wonderful companion to the right home, she just needs someone to give her a much-deserved chance. As a reward you will get some great sofa cuddles!
Stella will need an adult only home where someone is around all day. She would need to be the only pet as she does not like to share her food. She will need plenty of physical and mental stimulation, and you will be rewarded with love and affection. She will need a garden with minimum 6ft fences, to play in.
Lurchers are crossbreeds so their temperaments and behaviours can be influenced by other breed traits. She, like many Lurcher types has a strong prey drive so it’s important that this is channelled in the right way. Staffordshire Bull Terriers typically love people and approach the world with an exuberant and enthusiastic attitude. They naturally enjoy training and games but can need some help to learn calmer behaviours.
