Make Me a Star!

Star - 6 years old, located in South Carolina
Dog ID# 125491-P-B-SC

Star's owner has some medical issues and can no longer care for her. We need to get her moved into a foster home very soon.

Star is a 6 year old, liver and white female who was pulled from a shelter in South Carolina. She was terrified and extremely shy so it took her a couple of weeks to adjust to living in a home situation. She would stay in her crate or hide in her closet until she got used to her surroundings. She gets along great with the other dogs and cats in the home. She is spayed, housebroken, crate trained. She has good recall and likes to run around the yard with the other dogs. She has lots of energy, but settles down nicely after some exercise. She walks well on a leash.

Star will need someone who is very patient and willing to work with her shyness. Once she gets used to a new situation and is comfortable she is a character and a very loving dog. She thinks she is a lap dog. Star likes to chew so you do have to watch her closely especially around remotes and shoes until she outgrows this habit. When you take away something she is not supposed to have and give her one of her toys she is fine. She can play very well by herself, but loves to have balls thrown to her and she will bring them back for more fun. Balls have to be solid or she will chew them up so I use good tennis balls or rubber ones.

I do think Star would do best in a home with another dog and she would do better in a home with older children. I have not tested her with very young children. Star can be loads of fun and is such a character. She will shy away from strangers so we are working on that issue by going to the dog park and introducing her to new people as much as possible. She has not shown any signs of aggression. You can do just about anything to her like cut her nails, clean her ears, run the vacuum and she shows no fear just lays down and let you do what is necessary.
