Please come down to the Smithtown Animal Shelter and fall in love with Sweet Stella girl! Stella is a 7 year old spayed female staff terrier mix. Stella has been waiting for her furever home for over a year now. Stella would make a great walking companion and she is like a furry exercise machine. She loves to roll on her back for belly rubs and give kisses. Stella would do best in an adult only home with no other pets. Open up your heart and adopt this furbaby and give her the loving home she deserves!
