Pet of the Week: Stella Bella the puppy

CHICOPEE, Mass. (Mass Appeal) – In this edition of Pet of the Week, we were introduced to Stella Bella, a 7-month-old Chihuahua Mix puppy. Lee Chambers, Manager of Marketing and Communications for Dakin Humane Society, told us all about Stella Bella and about other events going on at Dakin.

Name: Stella Bella
Breed: Chihuahua mix
Age: 7 months
Sex: Female
Color: Black


Stella Bella is a sweet little bundle of energy and LOVE. She loves other dogs, and while we don’t know her history with cats, we can check that for you. Stella is a puppy and will need lots of exercise and attention, but her good disposition makes her an ideal first dog for someone without canine experience. Come meet her at our Springfield location.
