  Meet Star!

Introducing Star, a sweet little girl who is looking for a forever family to call her own. Don’t let the sad face fool you, even though she is on the shy side, Star does have a perky side that she expresses with her wagging.

She adores sitting in your lap and being doted on. And, she loves sleeping next to her human in the big bed. When she wants belly rubs, Star gently paws at your hand to signal you are falling down on your job.

Star is not fond of crates, so she needs a home where she can be secured in an open area with a baby gate while her family is out. She is housetrained, and she knows how to use the doggie door.

She does well on a leash and likes to go on leisurely walks. Star is also learning how to wait her turn for treats, and she’s working on basic commands. She has not shown any interest in toys, nor does she play a lot, but she does get along well with other dogs in her foster home. She tends to be shy around new people, but once she gets to know you, she is not as reserved.

Star follows her foster mom around the house and plants herself nearby on the floor or on the big bed to observe. When her foster mom goes out to run errands, Star shows no signs of separation anxiety, and she’s not an excessive barker.

Star would do well with a quiet family where someone is home most of the time. She would also like to have a fur companion to hang out with and keep her company while her humans are out. Because of her shyness, we prefer to place Star in a home with either no children or older children who will be considerate of her shyness.

Star is 5 years old, weighs 18 lb., and is completely vetted. She is ready to start her life with her new family. Could the family she’s been waiting for be yours? If you have a little extra room in your heart and in your home for this little girl. please let us know.

Star is located near San Antonio, TX.

If you are interested in adoption please fill out our Adoption Application. If you would like more information, please contact Connie Lawrence at conniel@andell.com.

Keep in mind that we prefer to place dogs within driving distance of where they are being fostered. If someone from outside the local area is approved for adoption, they must be willing to fly in to get the dog and that can only happen if the dog is stable enough to travel in the cabin with the passenger.
