Employee and Volunteer Picks

Of the many wonderful animals available at San Diego Humane Society, these pets are extra special because one of our staff or volunteers has chosen to nominate them as their Employee or Volunteer Pick.



Stella's as sweet as can be!



Stella (169616)

Volunteer: Sue W.

Stelllllllaaaa!!!Stella is a 4-year old American Staffordshire Terrier mix who has melted a number of our hearts at the San Diego Campus, including one of our new Canine Companion volunteers, Sue W.

To put it simply, Sue loves pretty much everything about this gentle giant, even her manner well..."relieving" herself. Read on to learn more, and then come on over and adopt this sweet girl.* 

What do you like best about her personality?
Sweet as pie!
"Stella always greets me with a smile. She loves to enjoy pets and is very goofy. Stella is very sweet. And poops like a lady (fun fact)." 

What first drew you to your pick?
"As a new volunteer, Stella is the first dog I feel connected to. I clicked with her right away."

Is there something special about the way your pick looks?
"She has a beautiful smoke grey coat and pretty golden eyes. I love it when she wags her tail when I talk sweetly to her. She likes to show me her toys."

What is her coolest/silliest/most fun trait?
"She is really easy on the leash and loves treats. I think wet food might be a favorite. She likes to have her ears rubbed. Her smile is super silly." 

Anything else you'd like to add?
"Stella is a beautiful and kind dog. She needs to be the only dog in the house. But when you bring her home, you will have so much love from her you will not need another dog. She is bubbly, happy-go-lucky and has really great energy."

Be sure to check out this adorable video of Stella, too!
