The Dog Story Behind The Dress: STELLA

We have mentioned before that all our dresses are named after dogs that we rescued from Romania. We would like to share some of their stories with you…


Stella was captured on the streets of Romania living rough, when she was about two years old. Living in the shelter wasn't much easier for her, and she fell ill with distemper. Even though she managed to fight off the disease, she got extremely weak.

Stella was a very shy and insecure dog, but her sad eyes were begging for help. Jenny decided to foster this wonderful girl herself, and took this underweight and very poorly dog home. It took a few weeks for her to gain strength and confidence, but thanks to Jenny's nurturing care and the canine companionship of Mona (Jenny's own rescue dog), Stella recovered.
She was adopted by a wonderful woman locally, and she instantly fit into her new home. She understood her new role in her new family quickly, and today she is a confident and happy dog, enjoying her country-life. Stella and her human mother regularly visit Mona and Jenny and the joy of reunion is always huge for both dogs and people.

There are plenty of more stories to tell… If you would like to help, send us an email and follow us on Instagram @bodenlang and  @bodenlang.animals . We are always looking for new homes and volunteers who would like to join us on our trips to Romania. Together with your help, we can make the living conditions of the dogs a little bit better, make sure that they get food, medical help and the chance of a loving home.
