Stella is a 10-year-old, 40lb black rescue who’s lived her entire adult life on Park Slope’s own 11th Street.
"Oh, 11th Street, as in Bill de Blockio," you ask? Yes, that same street. Though even Bill will tell you, Stella’s the most famous resident of 11th Street.
That’s because Stella is the kindest, sweetest dog you’ll ever met. A lover of people, she’ll turn her belly up for a rub when you meet her almost immediately. She’s great with kids. Great with animals. A quiet, happy presence who’s hella low-maintainence. Stella's hiking days are far behind her, so while she loves being outside, she doesn’t require a long walk. And when she does go out, she’s an off-leash dog who would be just as happy to sit in your backyard or on your front stoop all day, watching the action go by.
Basically, she’s the dog that everybody dreams of having one day.
Like many, Stella’s filmmaker mom has been priced out of the neighborhood, and will now be living a bi-coastal life, commuting between LA and New York. (Apparently, she can't afford the $6,500 house that just became available on the block either). But Stella’s heart is in Brooklyn, and is not about to deal with that 405 traffic. So she’s looking for a foster home close-by where she can hang out between mom’s visits. Basically, Stella needs a long-term Airbnb.
First floor apartments are optimal, because Stella is a tripod and isn’t about to deal with your fourth floor walk-up. But you’re welcome to pick her up and carry her.
