My story

Rune is a happy, energetic pup. She's a lean girl who looks like she could be a mix of retriever and a small sighthound, perhaps whippet or Italian greyhound. Rune is affectionate and attuned to people. She craves human companionship and is very responsive. She greets you with a hug! Rune is learning to walk nicely on a leash and to not jump up when taking a treat. She'll make a wonderful companion for a single person or a family with respectful children. Rune does have a high prey drive and would do best in a home without cats or small animals. She's also very vocal. Prepare to hear her speak with her bark! She has a lovely, smooth black coat and adorable floppy pointed ears. Rune will make you feel great by the way she gives and soaks up love.

She loves running so the right home will have a fenced yard and children at least 7+.

Rune is up to date on shots, spayed, micro-chipped and heartworm negative.

More about this rescue

Save The Animals Rescue Team II (S.T.A.R.T. II), started in 1989, is a non-profit, 501 (c) 3 status organization dedicated to alleviating the plight of homeless and abandoned companion animals. Twice a week we visit a local pound and take as many adoptable animals as we can. These animals are provided veterinary care, clean living conditions, exercise and socialization. We work with potential adopters to find that perfect match… them a "fur"- ever home for life. In addition, we educate the public on the importance of spaying/neutering as well as offering low cost options, vaccinations, preventive medications, and proper living conditions for their new and existing pets. This lifesaving work is critical for many of these unfortunate animals, since their only crime was to be born unwanted. Since our inception, we have rescued and placed over 7,000 dogs and cats.
