Certified in Air Scent
Stella was a highly energetic, free-spirited, talkative airscent dog who chose blinding speed over caution in her everyday life. She was ready to work any time, day or night, and preferred hiking through blustery winter terrain over the heat of mid-summer. She was ever the daredevil who sought out near vertical cliffs to scramble up instead of walking down a perfectly good trail. Her favorite pastime besides SAR work was careening down snow-covered hillsides and over jumps on her own sled.
