"I am looking to be adopted with my sister Snubba APA-A-83502!"

Stasha is a sweet, loyal dog with great house manners. Her favorite things to do are relax, get belly scratches, and hang out with her best friend Snubba. While she is timid around strangers at first, Stasha warms up to new friends quickly and becomes trusting within a few hours, especially if she has her buddy Snubba around to give her some extra confidence.

She is potty trained, quiet, and knows basic commands including "sit" and "no." Stasha is polite on her leash and enjoys going out on walks. At home, she likes to chew on her rope toy and lay in her bed.

Stasha is chill, happy, and loving. She would make a wonderful loyal companion, brightening your day when you arrive home and giving you the sweetest brown eyes while you scratch her head. Stasha and Snubba came to the shelter after their owner passed away and are looking for a new home to bring joy to. She would love a home where she can relax in bed, go for walks, and get lots of scratches.

Stasha is so warm and sweet, she would love to get to know you!

*This dog is bonded with Snubba and they MUST be adopted together!

INTERESTED IN FOSTERING?

We are currently closed to the public and are only open by appointment (foster or adopter), but we are still diligently working to place dogs in foster homes! You can inquire about fostering a specific dog by submitting an inquiry through the dog's individual profile on this website or by emailing [email protected] to get more information about how to be matched with a foster dog.

Please do not visit our shelters without talking with us first. To prevent community spread, we cannot have large crowds gathering in our shelters.
