In October 2021, actor Alex Wolff mourned the loss of his dog Stella, sharing her story in an Instagram post. Stella, once a homeless dog surviving on pizza outside a restaurant, was adopted by Wolff’s family while in poor health, suffering from a severe thyroid condition. Inspired by Stella, Wolff’s mother wrote a film about a family brought together by the loss of a dog, casting Stella in it. Initially, the family was concerned about Stella’s health, but under their care, she remarkably recovered and thrived, living much longer than expected.
