- Stella is a 8 year, 3 mo. old Boston Terrier in San Francisco, CA
Stella is our newly adopted Boston Terrier. We fostered her for a week after she was attacked by another dog and had to have her eye removed. We immediately fell in love with her sweet personality. All she wants to do is cuddle and play. She is incredibly quiet - no barking or whimpering - although she has the occasional fart, snore, and snort :) She will follow you around the house, and lay by your side on the couch or in bed. She loves her people. Due to Stella's past, she is very cautious about other dogs. We try to socialize her in friendly settings with other friendly dogs, but it's best she is always on a leash outside and that other dogs are avoided when on walks. She also was not trained before we got her. We are working on things like sit, stay, come, and her name, but they are slowly coming. She is a good listener in the house, but as she's new to city life, outside is a bit distracting and she forgets everything she learned. She is a great walker on a leash, and just needs to be kept on the leash.
- Sex: Female
- Age: 8 years, 3 mo. old
- Weight: 18 lbs
- Breed: Boston Terrier
- Tracking Chip: No
- Spayed: Yes
- House Trained: Yes
She is on a good 4-6 hour schedule, and sleeps through the whole (~10pm-7:30am) without needing to go out. She is new to house training, so keeping to a schedule is important to avoid accidents. It's I will share details.
- Gets along with children: No
We don't know. Given she's a newly adopted dog, I would just recommend against it. No reason to believe she wouldn't get along with children though.
- Gets along with other dogs: No
She was attacked by a large dog this year (that's how she lost her eye). We adopted her after this, but she is still not good with other dogs. She is very cautious and alert when passing other dogs on walks, but as long as she is kept on a leash and at a distance, there is nothing to worry about. She shouldn't be in a home with other animals or taken off leash outside.
- Gets along with cats: No
She chases them.
