Stella is a sweet, loving 4.5 year old dog that we adopted 2 months ago from a shelter. The shelter did not provide accurate information to us about her history, and after a few months we have finally had to make the difficult decision that our household is not the right place for her. She shows slight signs of aggression, but has never been vicious in our experience. We did have a few small incidents where she has nipped at children and women specifically, and we believe she was abused as a puppy/young dog. Her nipping and jumping up on women seems to be an act of 'offense before defense'. After reporting these behaviors back to the Humane Society - they have told us their recommendation is humane euthanasia, which we are definitely trying to avoid. She has bonded incredibly with my significant other and just adores him. I do believe she would do best as the only pet in a household, preferably with a single man. She is crate trained, though we never left her in her crate during the day. She loves her chew toys and adores sleeping with her humans. She knows basic commands: sit, stay, lay down, come, down. She has no food aggression of any kind. Truly a wonderful dog, we just cannot incorporate her sensitivity towards people and other dogs into our active lifestyle.
