A volunteer writes: Some dogs are so special they live on in your heart long after you’ve spent time with them. Star is one of those dogs. I met her first in a playgroup and she came right over to me and gave me a stand up hug, leaning in as close as she could. A staff person laughingly called her a “Walmart greeter” as Star likes to meet and welcome everyone she sees. She loves people, rolling over for a belly rub, plays briefly with a toy, but her happy place is snuggled close to her person. Her leash manners are great, she seems to be housetrained – she’s a STAR. Intake notes that she’s “sweet and affectionate” and boy, is she ever. Her tail never stops wagging and every opportunity is a hugging opportunity- elevator ride – let’s hug!, stop to take some notes – let’s cuddle! check out the dog passing? she’s cute but let’s hug! Playgroup – nice but let’s go hug the human! Sweet and snuggly doesn’t begin to describe this love muffin, and if you’re looking for the best cuddle partner ever you’ve found her! Star will be thrilled to do whatever it is that you want to do….as long as she’s with you. Our superSTAR is hoping you’ll stop by to meet her today.
