Facts about Comet

  • Breed: Pointer
  • Color: Unknown

  • ID#: 2014-02-23-SD-0397
Comet is a sweet little guy with specialized needs. When he should have been getting his formative socialization, he was instead living a feral lifestyle. He can co-exist very peacefully with other dogs with submissive personalities. He himself is submissive, and therefore can be picked on by dominat dogs. Comet would thrive on a farm with other sweet happy dogs. He will walk with you and play with other dogs and sleeps inside at night. He is fine around farm animals although We do not know how he would do around fowl. He loves belly rubs, treats, and quietly sitting with you. As he started out a feral, he can sometimes resort to fear biting, so he needs a special person to call his own that understands his background. He does need to be with other dogs, and will only be adopted to a home where other dogs are present.<br>

About STAR - Saving the Animals of Rowan

About Our Rescue Group...

Saving the Animals of Rowan is a 501c3 organization committed to improving the conditions for the abandoned dogs of Rowan County, KY. Our few members work to find safe and loving homes or rescues for dogs that find themselves in the Tri-County Animal Shelter. STAR members are dedicated to reducing the number of dogs euthanized due to the overcrowded conditions of this rural shelter.

STAR is not the dog pound. We are a small group of caring people who save shelter dogs. Our goal is to get dogs out of the pound and to the safety of a rescue or a new home. We can only help dogs outside the pound when space and funds are available. If you are local you can either give STAR a few weeks to work on placement for your dog or you can take your dog to the shelter and we will assess it there. We work solely on donations and are always in need of more local foster homes in the Rowan County KY area.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Meetings with STAR dogs are by appointment, after an application has been screened/approved.

Our Adoption Process...

Application, vet reference check, home visit, meet-n-greet with the dog and all of your family members (2-legged and 4-legged) to see if it's a good fit. STAR will ALWAYS take back any dog if the adoption doesn't work out for any reason. All of our dogs are spayed/neutered, heartworm tested (treated if positive), dewormed, treated for fleas/ticks/mange as needed, and vaccinated with the first distemper combo and rabies vaccines.
