zzStar is a small American Staffordshire mix rescued from being euthanized at a facility in Smith County, TX, but now her rescuers need to find her a loving forever home! She is a happy-go-lucky girl with a sweet and loving disposition. She gets along great with other dogs and enjoys a good romp and wrestle. She would do best with dogs of her own size or larger, because she doesn’t quite realize her size and can be a little rough with smaller dogs. She definitely thinks she is a lap dog and LOVES to snuggle. Star is quite the lovebug and just wants to make her humans happy. She is 90% house-trained but has an accident every once and a while. As long as she is taken out every few hours, she is fine. Star has not been around children, but I feel like she would love them. It would be better if they were big enough to defend themselves from potential jumping. She is crate trained and is crated during the day when we are at work and sleeps in our room in a crate at night. She readily gets in her crate when told. The only behavioral issues Star exhibits is jumping, leash pulling and a bit of rambunctiousness which is to be expected from a young pup. She really just needs a bit of professional training, and then she will be good to go! Star weighs approximately 45 lbs and is about one year old. She is such a beautiful girl and cannot wait to find her forever home!
