Starlight is such a cuddle bunny and real sleeping beauty. She absolutely loves being with her human friends all the time, snuggling on their feet or curling up in their laps. And this sweet, sleepy lady hopes to snooze with them overnight. If you are looking for a chill lady who will snooze while you work, Star is your gal!

During the day, she loves going for long car rides with the windows down. She also enjoys her leash walks, learning to pull less when she sees other people - or the dogs she loves. She's very friendly to other dogs and hopes to play with them. She has played well with kids, and even seems friendly to cats. This gentle, affectionate girl adores her humans so much that she prefers that they be around all the time. She would love continued training on understanding that her humans will come home. She's been making good progress on her house training, learning to potty outdoors.

Starlight is a loving lady who hopes for a home where her people are home most of the time. She'd also love to share it with kids, likely ones that are older than 6, and dog buddies. She would also enjoy a yard to roam. Come meet her. She'll cuddle you right away!


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.
