URGENT "Meet Roxie! She came to us as a stray in mid-January and she is ready to become someone's forever dog. Roxie is consistently overlooked as she tends to hide in the back of her kennel and she takes a few interactions to start to become comfortable, but she is such a great dog! She seems to be about 2-3 years old. Roxie is a very scared and timid girl. You can see that she tries to come out of her shell and get close to you, but she is still unsure of her surroundings. Roxie has shown the staff nothing but love even through being so timid. She wants to be around you and makes it clear she does not want you to leave her. She will look to you to make sure you are close to her during walks. We are not sure of her background but she seems to prefer to be the only animal in her forever home. However, she may do okay with cats! She corrects well around them and doesn't show too much interest. Since Roxie does not have much confidence, a home that is typically quiet would suit her best most likely. We have seen glimpses of who Roxie is and we can tell you that she is wonderful! She just may take a little longer to come around, but she is worth the wait! She walks beautifully on a leash and knows how to sit! Roxie loves to work for hot dogs and will do anything for whipped cream - she's very treat motivated! Roxie clearly wants to be loved and also wants to love someone equally. Please consider opening your home to sweet Roxie. She could be your forever dog...

THIS IS A COURTESY POST. STAR IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY INFORMATION PROVIDE. PLEASE EMAIL THE CONTACT PROVIDED FOR ALL INQUIRIES. THANK YOU
All STAR animals come vetted, Up to Date (UTD) on age appropriate shots and testing, spay and neutered (if of age,) and microchipped.
Please fill out an adoption application and start the process for your new family member!
AGE DISCLAIMER: Unfortunately, most of the orphaned animals that come into our rescue looking for homes don’t bring birth certificates. Sometimes we know our pets’ ages. Sometimes we don’t. So we make our best guess based on the condition of their teeth and the veterinarians best guess. BREED DISCLAIMER: Visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable so for most of the dogs we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label . Microchips: For the safety of our dogs and peace of mind of our fosters and adopters, STAR microchips all dogs prior to adoption with Petlink Microchips. Please understand that all dogs MUST still wear a collar with ID tags (which include your current information) AT ALL TIMES. Please remember, our foster dogs are extremely important to us-- we will always take any of our dogs back, if for any reason you can't keep your adopted dog. Never surrender him/her to a shelter!
