If you’ve ever experienced the joy that only an animal can bring—or felt the healing power of a pet’s unconditional love—you’re going to adore Incredibull Stella.

Stella_Instagram

Marika Meeks fell in love with Stella the moment she saw her. The adorable pit bull puppy had been abandoned in a cold field in winter - but her warm, friendly eyes and boundless affection could melt anyone’s heart.

Even so, Marika wasn’t sure she was ready to adopt a dog. As a busy entrepreneur, wife, and mother of two daughters, Marika’s life was crazy already. She was recovering from Stage 3 breast cancer, and her family was still reeling from her brush with mortality. But Marika couldn’t deny the way Stella made her feel - the pure joy of this sweet-natured dog’s unconditional love - and she knew in her heart what her family needed ...

In a leap of faith, the Meekses welcomed Stella into their home, and thanks to this incredible dog, the daily pressures of work, stress, and Marika’s health problems seemed to slip away. As Marika’s cancer receded and her family found renewed vitality, she began sharing Stella’s story with the world.

Now an international social media star, Stella helps Marika to spread their heartfelt message of advocating for pit bull breed awareness, explaining the benefits of pet ownership, and supporting shelters and other organizations that save animals’ lives.

I really enjoyed the book! I’ve been following Stella for quite a while and loved really learning the whole story. Thank you, Marika and family, for being raw and putting yourselves out there. Cancer and depression can impacts so many people. You are reminding people to take care of themselves. Be self-aware. I’m a huge fan of rescues...Adopt don’t shop. I have three rescue dogs, three rescue cats and three of my four kids have each adopted a rescue dog. Meeks/Hamilton family, keep doing what you’re doing...one dog at a time. I’m a fan!

I was truly moved by this story of challenge and inspiration. It is well-written, inspiring, authentic, and entertaining. How the love of a dog can change a life, and enhance it- terrific. You won’t regret reading this book and it may inspire you to do more to make a difference. A great read!

I loved this book! Each chapter leaves you wanting to read more! Such an inspirational story of courage, love and a dog that brings together a family. Marika’s honest memoir of her struggle with self love and cancer and then finding her best friend Stella an abandoned puppy, will bring tears to your eyes as you read about their journey. This book is filled with so much hope and encouragement that we can all take something away from their story. So inspired by their work to raise awareness of Pitt Bulls and the importance of spay and neutering! <3

I follow Marika and Stelly on Instagram. The book captures your attention from the first page and I was tearing up shortly thereafter! Very emotional and moving. Marika has quite a story to tell and Stella is truly such a special girl! A must read and a great way to support Marika, Stelly and her very special breed.

Heartwarming and honest memoir of Marika’s struggle with cancer and then finding (rescuing) her best friend Stella. The fascinating surprise is learning how Stella rescued Marika and her family. Truly incredubull read. I loved this book.

Amazing book. I follow Stella on Instagram but reading the back story and how they saved each other was moving and powerful. Literally brought me to tears.

I loved this book! I cried and I smiled throughout Marika's adventure battling cancer and how far she has come with Stella. I would highly recommend this book to anyone I know. As a fellow pit bull owner, I felt I could relate to the feeling of Marika meeting Stella for the first time, as well as her trying to fight the stigma. This book is a huge step portraying what a pit bull is actually like as well as helping to break down the portrayal of them as vicious, aggressive and dangerous.

I couldn’t put this book down. Marika’s story is so inspirational and there is a piece of it we no doubt can all relate to. I admire her work to raise awareness and educate people on pit bull type dogs. BSL is wrong and she is changing minds through sharing her story.
