STEPHIE- Vet Pet Pick!




  • BULLY MIX – Dark Sleek Brindle coat; 57 Lbs.
  • ADULT FEMALE – Est. DOB:  11/2008
  • ARRIVED:  11/2009
  • HISTORY:  Stephie was found wandering along a local road having chewed her way through a heavy gauge wire  (and freedom from a tie out) which was still hooked onto her collar.

People really, really love this girl!  While she might seem a bit intimidating as you approach her “patio area,” she is really a huge mush and loves everyone she meets…except dogs!!   Stephie is a very excitable girl and when she sees people coming her way, her number one goal is for you to notice her and come on by to see how terrific she is.  Now with other dogs, in the past, they have presented a real threat to her.  While her reactivity has reduced a bit as she has aged, her distinct preference is to be an only fur child!

A Word from Stephie

I keep pinching myself thinking I am still in a dream.  My movement is no longer restricted by a cable (as I was in my former life) and I am a free girl.  I can’t tell you how much of a thrill it is for me to be able to run around in my large pen, hop up on my wooden sofa, go out and explore the CFC grounds on a leash and meet and greet new and exciting faces.  In meeting me, you will see I am all smiles, tail wags and overall body wiggles. 

Party in my crib tonight and you, yes you, are welcome to stop on by!  What, you have other human friends who would like to join in the fun? Sounds wonderful!  Events planned for tonight include an easy walk in the woods, huge belly rubbing/scratching sessions focused on me and then I get my turn with you by giving out party favors in the form of doggy kisses and mini hugs.  Count on a hostess that is full of energy, has a real zest for life and makes everyone feel like they are my new best friend.   Please no other dogs or cats at this party.  Only my fur is perfect for this exclusive event.  Hope to see you soon.

What Stephie Needs in Her Home 

No other dogs or cats please! Stephie prefers the limelight! She loves scratches and hugs, toys and bones, and a nice place to lie down. She wouldn’t mind a couple of little ones to lavish love on her! Stephie moves slowly and has a bow-legged stride, due to old age, and is currently on supplements to ease her discomfort. She can be a bit stubborn on her walks, and you may need to offer food as encouragement! However, she is an expert cuddler; when she wants to love on you, no encouragement is needed! An added bonus?  Stephie LOVES car rides!
