Stark is a beautiful young lady. She is very well behaved and wants to please. The horses do not phrase her. We take long walks in the pasture. She does not chase them. Stark plays well with my dogs, a Lab and Catahoula. There are some dogs that she does not like so if you have a dog we would need to introduce them.
She loves to go on walks (I always had her on a leash). Loves to go on car rides. Rides well in my truck’s back seat (not the truck bed). Loves to swim. Rope toys, tough toys and stuffed toys are her favorite. The stuffed toys will not last long. She does not bark a lot.
She sleeps in an extra large crate. The command to get in the crate is “load up”.
Things you should be aware of:
As with most shelter dogs, Stark has abandonment issues. It would be best if someone was home with her and not left alone all day while her parents are at work. When she first came home with me she would cry when I left her. She feels more secure when I crate her when I leave. When she was in the back yard and I was in the barn she would climb my four foot fence to be with me. She would not run off, she would just hunt me down. I increased my fence to six feet and she does not get out. Stark is a tall dog. A six foot fence would be best.
Stark will make a wonderful companion dog. She needs a family that will love her and provide consistency in her life. She definitely left her paw prints on my soul. Deanna Ooley – firstname.lastname@example.org.
