Star is a 12-year old female shepherd/lab mix. She should weigh as much as 80 pounds, but lost weight from the stress of living in a shelter. In her foster home she is feeling much better, eating well, enjoying walks, and getting petted. She is fine with other dogs, cats, and people. She has some weakness in her back hips but does fine with stairs and vigorous walks. Star has lived with little Patch for all of her life and a double adoption would be ideal for both of them.
All dogs are spayed/neutered, up to date on vaccinations, heartworm tested negative and microchipped. A senior dog's adoption fee is $100
