Meet Cesara! This gorgeous, 3-4 year old, 64 lb, girl is a short haired beauty, though her name means “long-haired.” The color of her coat is a warm reddish brown.  Cesara has white spotted paws with a matching chest. This pup is always getting compliments for her beauty and sweetness. Cesara actually was part of a 'guess my breed' contest at DSR.  As a result she actually had a DNA test to reveal that she is part American Staffordshire Terrier, Boxer, and Bulldog mix!  What an amazing mix of breeds that creates one gorgeous pup!

Cesara seems to be always smiling, radiating her wonderful personality. She sheds very little which is an asset because though she is a big girl ,she likes nothing better than to sit next to you and be petted. Actually, she would prefer to be on your lap! She loves people, so much so that she needs to be the only animal in the family. In other words- she needs to be the queen of her castle!

Cesara is already an amazing pup as she is already house and crate trained (But do remember there can be some accidents as a dog adjusts to a new environment). In addition, she knows “sit, wait, and walk” and has been making real progress with applying “leave it” as she encounters people, bikes, cars, and dogs. She immediately pauses, sits, and seeks a reward! Always ready to make new friends, when Cesara sees a new person, she wants to greet them with all her energy. However, since she  has been working on sitting before being petted, she is getting much better at introductions.

Always up for a new adventure, Cesara gets so excited when she knows she is going for a walk or a ride in the car! Once she is refocused all is well and oh, does she love to walk. She would even love it if you ran with her.

About Dog Star Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Dog Star Rescue is a grass-roots effort started by a group of dog lovers with experience in the rescue world. The name Dog Star comes from the common name for the star Sirius, reflecting its prominence in its constellation, Canis Major (Greater Dog). The symbolism of the star as a guide to a safe passage is what we strive to do for our adoptable dogs as we find them a new life with a loving family.
We work closely with shelters in the South as well as the New England states to save the lives of loving and loyal dogs who have lost their way and find themselves on death row. Our volunteers get these dogs the medical and emotional care they need so they can transition into a loving forever home. All of our amazing members are unpaid volunteers with a passion for helping dogs. They spend significant time each week helping guide dogs to a wonderful new life. If you ask our volunteers, they'll tell you they do it for a wide variety of reasons, including personal satisfaction in helping address a nation wide problem, their love of dogs, and a desire to have fun socializing with like-minded people. DSR is always looking for new volunteers to join our group so if this sounds like something you would like to be a part of please contact us.

Come Meet Our Pets...

While DSR does not have a brick and mortar facility we do frequently host adoption events in Connecticut. These are wonderful opportunities to meet a variety of amazing dogs that are up for adoption. Check out our Facebook page for the most up to date listing of upcoming events.
Otherwise, dogs can be seen by appointment after completing the DSR application. Arrangements are made by the screening volunteer and coordinated with the foster family.

Our Adoption Process...

Interested adopters are asked to complete an application to begin the adoption process. This valuable document helps us insure that we are finding the perfect match for both the dog and the family members. If your application looks like a good fit, you will be contacted by phone for an interview. This is an opportunity to learn more about the home life you offer and the known temperament and energy level of the dog that is available for adoption. In some cases we may find that a different adoptable dog may be more suitable for your lifestyle and would be brought to your attention. Next, you will speak with the previous foster families to learn more about the day to day needs and behavior of the dog as an extra measure to find the perfect match. In addition, your veterinarian will be contacted to confirm your dedication to the health and well being of your previous or current pets.
Finally DSR reserves the right to do a home inspection prior to the adoption approval.
While this may seem like a lengthy process it actually may only take a week or two. As a result you should only begin the adoption process when you are ready to welcome a dog into your home.
DSR makes every effort to insure our dogs are healthy, happy, and well cared for by our loving volunteers as they wait for their forever homes. All dogs are up to date on all vaccinations, spayed/neutered, and receive a health certificate before being transported. Our adoption fee is $450 and every penny goes towards the rescue of dogs in need.
