Stella is a Maremma Sheepdog, an ancient Italian breed of dog, traditionally used to protect the sheep while they are up in the mountains in Italy. Stella is six years old and is very gentle and incredibly loyal.
Stella is described as a big soft bear, who loves being fussed and meeting everyone. Stella loves getting out and about, playing with other dogs and meeting new faces. She lives at home with other dogs including her son Ercole and is a great mum, often telling Ercole off if he steps out of line.
Stella loves a treat, especially biscuits, and also likes attention, winning Best Reserve in 2015 at Crufts. Later this year she is going to the World Dog Show in Amsterdam!
