So many people have asked our family how they can help our Stellabella :) This is a NO PRESSURE fundraiser to help cover some of the vet expenses that WILL arise during Stellas upcoming surgery. I seriously underestimated how much it takes to rescue a dog like this. Give a few bucks if you feel the urge, if not, no biggie, we always love our friends and family and know you support us in this no matter what!

Stella is an English Bulldog who we found being 'sold' on craigslist. She was NOT spayed and had already had at least 2 litters in her short 4 1/2 years. Throughout the last 2 days I have learned about her past via vet records and being very persistant. One of 3 past 'owners' was willing to share a few details about her.

Stella was born to a breeder to create puppies for profit. Three or four months ago the original breeders home burned down and 9 bulldogs who were used for breeding were killed, including Stellas new litter of puppies. Stella and her 2 year old daughter (and 3 others) escaped and fled to a nearby barn. Stella and her daughter were taken in by the woman who told me this story.

This woman had the best intentions to rehome the 5 surviving dogs but didnt have the ability to screen as closely as she should have. The lady who adopted Stella from the above woman (who put Stella on craigslist) was 'suppose' to have spayed Stella immediately AND provided her with a forever home, instead she decided to make a quick profit and find an easy target buyer... ME.

I dont feel scammed, rather, I feel honored to be a part of Stellas journey to optimal health and happiness. She is a sweet and trusting soul who wants only to love and be loved.... AND be an only dog in a family.... we will nurse her to health and make sure she gets princess treatment in the process.... we will assess her needs and form a gameplan for her future.

I paid the ransom to get her off craigslist, thats ok with me. What I am hoping for is that I have a few dog-loving friends who understand the high cost of veterinary services. We are hoping to raise the amount of the spay and laser therapy to help this girl get her figure back and never suffer through a pregnancy ever again.
