Receptionist / Esthetician
Service Dog | RIP 4/2010 - 8/2022
Stella was adopted in Los Angeles, California on April 13, 2010 with the intent to be trained as a therapy/service dog. After Jill was hit by a drunk driver she had severe PTSD. Her doctor advised a therapy/service animal to help with panic attacks. From the moment Jill met Stella, it was love at first sight. Jill had searched many months to find a dog that had potential for the animal training. Stella proved to be easy to train, learning all the techniques the trainer put before her. With her certification, Stella helped Jill to get back out into the world, gradually managing her anxiety and PTSD. Stella loves her job at Just Jill Beauty & Wellness. She may even greet clients at the door and walk them back to the room.
** Stella had two seizures on 8/12/22. She died peacefully on 8/14/22 at home in Jill’s arm surrounded by her entire family to help her pass over. We will forever love and miss you Stella! xo
