Stasha has had a hard time in her few years on earth. Stasha was adopted adopted out of MARS two years ago to someone who we thought would give her a forever home. With out contacting MARS that person then gave Stasha to another family. That family fell on hard times and lost their home. Stasha was then handed over to a Animal Control. There was a strong chance that Stasha would have been PTS by animal control but because Stasha had a microchip Animal Control was able to locate MARS and asked if MARS would take her back. We said YES!
Stasha is a sweet girl who loves to meet new human friends! Stasha likes to play with a squeak ball and will run short distances to get it and will bring it back. She knows 'give'. She likes to play tug of war. Her favorite thing is to get the hidden treat out of her toy. She will drop a toy at your feet to let you know she would like to play. Stasha likes to cuddle and is a very alert guard dog. Her new human family will need training on how to tell Stasha which which noises are OK and which she needs to worry about.
Stasha will do best in a home as the only dog because she was attacked by other dogs and is now fearful of other dogs. Stasha has been receiving training on being calm around other dogs. She has made great progress but needs more training to succeed as a pack member. MARS is willing to provide the training to help her succeed.
Please share her story with friends, family, FaceBook, Twitter and others. You never know if someone in your circle could be her forever family.
