Star is a Female Australian Shepherd mix, and at about one year old she weighs between 15 and 20 pounds. She is sweet and friendly, enjoys the company of other dogs, and typical of her breed mix, Star is highly intelligent.
Rescued from the Little Rock dog pound she was at first shivering and scared, but after a few sniffs about her new foster home and after learning that she was among friends she soon relaxed and is now a happy, playful girl.
Even though Star is still a young playful pup it is important to remember that as beautiful and cuddly as Star is at the moment, she will grow into an adult dog in no time at all. You should also be prepared for the usual trial of rearing a young dog including the chewing, crying, potty training, and constant demands. For this reason we would prefer that Star’s new guardians have experience with young dogs and understand their special needs. Remember, just like kids, they grow up real fast.
You can meet Star at the west Little Rock Petco on Chenal Parkway across from Target and Home Depot every Sat and Sun from 1-4. Please be sure and call (501-219-9907) before you come to visit her to make sure that she is still there. Star has received a complete medical evaluation, alter, all shots, rabies, fecal and worming medication, flea/tick preventative, heartworm preventative, micro-chipping, and grooming. If believe that Star's future could be as part of your family, you are invited to send an email to Contact@DogsOnly.org or complete an online adoption application by clicking the orange text links at the top or bottom of this page.
