Starling is looking for her fur-ever home!


Starling is looking for her fur-ever home!

- Meet Starling!

This 40 pound pit mix is around three years old, and is full grown. Starling has finished her heartworm treatment, and is finally ready to go to her forever home! 

Starling is completely housebroken! She is also crate trained, and doesn’t make a peep when staying in her kennel while Foster Mom is gone. Starling eats in her kennel, and when it’s meal time she will politely go into her kennel and sit until her meal has arrived. Over these past couple months Starling has also learned to sit on command and has improved her leash walking skills! We think Starling would love to be with a family where she can show off her leash walking skills either on a couple long walks, weekend hikes, or even just on the way to the dog park!

Starling is cat friendly! She does need structured introductions with them to make sure that she knows that they are friends and not things to chase. That being said, she currently lives with three cats and is BFFS with them! One of Foster Mom’s cats is particularly fond of Starling, and you can often find the two of them hanging out together and giving each other some love! Starling is also great with kids – she behaves well around them and is very sweet to them. Starling loves to get affection from her human family. She will gladly accept pets (and give kisses in return), but if you are too busy she will self-entertain with some toys or just curl up next to you and nap. Foster Mom also told us that besides getting attention, Starling loves to eat peanut butter… the only thing is she thinks that she isn’t quite sure how to lick it off, and ends up trying to steal the whole spoon!
