Meet Star

Hi, my name is Star! I'm a PURPLE pawprint, which means I will fit well into a home that meets some specific criteria. Here is what would work best for me in my new home:

-Personality: Attentive, independent, intelligent
-Can Live with Kids: Unknown history - recommending 12+ at this time. Up to counselor's discretion.
-Can Live with Cats: No - shepherds tend to have high prey drives.
-Can Live with Dogs: Not at this time. We recommend working on reactivity and confidence around other dogs before living with one.
-Can do Apartment Living: No
-Potty Trained: Appears to be
-Bite History: No
-Positive Reward Based Obedience Classes Required: No
-Energy Level: Medium
-Needs Medical Procedure Before Going Home: Yes, spay/MC

Star is a resilient middle aged dog who has had a tough start to life. She came in very thin with brittle hair and would greatly benefit from a high quality diet to help her gain some weight and get into tip top shape! Her past may have left her with some emotional scars, but with patience, understanding and lots of love, she's ready to overcome any obstacle. Star's ideal home is one filled with warmth, love, and stability. She would thrive in a calm and nurturing environment where she can receive the attention and care she deserves. A fenced yard would be a bonus, as Star enjoys spending time outdoors, exploring her surroundings, and basking in the sun. She would do best in a home without young children or other pets, as she prefers to be the center of attention and may feel overwhelmed in busy or chaotic environments. If Star sounds like the perfect fit for you, please fill out an application for review.

If you are interested in adopting, please fill out an application on our website ( or in person at our facility. We recommend calling into the shelter after your application has been submitted so our front desk can give you next steps on our adoption process.
