Star is a 10 month old female APBT mix. Her owner got her from her previous owner when she was 5 months old. He had to surrender her due to her health. She has sarcoptic mange that has not resolved with Lyme baths or Revolution.
Star is friendly/outgoing with new people. She lived with 3 children ages 4, 6, and 7 and was relaxed, playful, and tolerant with them. She plays exuberantly with people. She is shy and timid with new dogs she meets outside. Once gets to know them, she’s relaxed, playful, tolerant, and plays exuberantly with them. She had regular play dates with a large male dog. Star has never bit anyone.
Star doesn’t mind storms. She doesn’t mind when someone takes his food/treat/toy, moves her off furniture, holds/restrains her, wakes her up, bathes her, brushes her, or trims her nails. She’s friendly with new people who approach her home/family.
FOR A NEW FAMILY TO KNOW
Star’s family describes her as friendly, affectionate, playful, excitable, and high energy. She follows her family. She plays chase and fetch and likes balls and bones. She lived inside and slept on a dog bed. She ate dry Wellness food and got chicken as a treat. Star was learning to go potty outside but had to stay inside for the past 3 months. She always goes #2 on wee-wee pads. She mostly goes #1 on her wee-wee pads but sometimes urinates small amounts in front of the fridge. She’s otherwise well-behaved while home alone. She was crated when she was younger but doesn’t need to be anymore. She sits, lies down, and gives paw every time she’s asked. When she meets new people, she often displays her tricks for them without being asked. She went for brisk walks and didn’t pull on her leash. Off-leash, she wandered but came when called.
Star had a soft body and wagging tail in her crate in the car and as we took her through the building on a flat bed. She wagged her tail and sniffed me while I pet her and gave her food and water.
