Story
Say hi to Robbie, a white-coated, sweet-faced 9-year old, 11-pound Chihuahua mix who is just too handsome for words! Robbie gets along beautifully with other dogs and cats, and he’s at his most playful when he’s got another pooch to horse around with. In fact, you’ll marvel at how puppy-like Robbie can be! When Robbie becomes excited, he can get a bit mouthy - - and while he means zero harm, an adult-only home or one with older kids would be best suited for Robbie. He’s just a quirky pipsqueak who acts like he’s still teething sometimes! When Robbie feels like chilling out, he enjoys being pet and scratched. His beautiful coat is warm and snuggly and ohhhh-soooo-soft to the touch. His shedding is minimal and he barks only when he’s having a convo with his doggie pals. Hey, wanna play woof me? OK, arf be right there! ;-) When it comes to food, Robbie’s ALL in. And treats? This guy will eat anything! Which will come in handy, because Robbie’s still got a few things to figure out, and being treat motivated always helps. In terms of his bathroom habits, Robbie does his number 2’s outside, but he needs more training for pee-pee time. Currently he wears a belly band to alleviate that issue, but he’s also pad trained and crate trained, which is great! Robbie enjoys getting fresh air, but he’s inexperienced at walking on a leash or going in the yard by himself. When it’s time to go out, Robbie prefers to follow another dog out if that’s an option, or he’ll just wait for you to pick him up. Uppy, uppy, hoooman! This funny ‘lil meatball just needs some time and patience to iron out his kinks, but he’ll get there, and when he does, you’ll be so happy you put in the effort. If you give Robbie the love he deserves and the confidence he needs, he’ll give you the world! If you would like to adopt this wonderful dog, please email rescue@pupstarzrescue.org or visit www.pupstarzrescue.org for an application!

Story
Bebe Bailey is a frisky 10-year-old Chihuahua who enjoys spending time with people and who is still pretty spry for her age. She's a perfectly-sized lap dog at under 13 pounds. Although Bebe has a luxating patella in one back leg and a low grade heart murmur per the vet, she doesn't seem to be affected by either one of these conditions. Bebe was not house trained when was arrived in rescue, but she did use potty pads. With her foster mom's help, she is now about 85 to 90 % potty trained. She does not ask to go out so foster mom takes her out to do her business. Bebe always wants to go out when asked. She is not a fan of being crated though. Bebe sleeps in a dog bed on the floor. Her favorite place to hang out is the back of the couch - she'd be a great TV-watching buddy on these cold (or rainy) winter nights! If you'd like to meet Bebe Bailey, please complete an adoption application at www.northstarpets.org and be sure to ask for her by name!February 23, 2024, 9:15 pm

Story
When Shamrock's owner died, this poor boy was surrendered to a shelter in Texas. NorthStar stepped up and he's now out of there & in a wonderful foster home. When he got home, Shamrock did his business, walked into his crate, curled up & fell fast asleep. Foster mom says he is totally house trained. He got her attention when he woke up from his nap so she took him outside. He quickly did his business and wanted to go right back inside. He is also good with dogs of all sizes! We will post more info on Shamrock when know him a little better. He is about 13 years old and weighs 11 pounds. He will be having a dental done & we are sure he will be feeling better after that! If you'd like to meet Shamrock when he arrives in NJ, please fill out an application at www.northstarpets.org & be sure to ask for SHAMROCK TX!February 23, 2024, 9:15 pm

Story
Meet Catalina, Cat for short. This sweet baby was almost shot when she wandered onto the property of a fancy deer lease in Texas. Luckily they decided she was too small to harm any new fawns and picked her up instead! Cat is only 7 months old and is full of puppy energy. She loves to run in the yard and she enjoys other dogs her size. She also likes cats! She is especially attached to her person and follows her foster mom absolutely everywhere. She is absolutely adorable, especially with that curly tail! Cat would love a home with a yard, but would do just fine in an apartment as long as she got a good walk or time at the dog park. Interested in a loving, feisty, fun and cuddly girl? Little Catalina could be the pup for you! If you'd like to Catalina, please fill out an adoption application at www.northstarpets.org and be sure to ask for her by name!February 23, 2024, 9:15 pm

Karma is a tiny girl at only 7 pounds - she gets along well with both cats and dogs, but will need more work on her housetraining. We believe she is 1-3 years old.

Story
Meet Willow! Willow is a pomsky puppy who is looking for her loving forever home. She was saved from a puppy mill along with her two littermates, and like many puppy mill survivors, is fearful of people but shows no aggression despite her fear. Willow is great with other dogs and needs a home with at least one well-adjusted dog to help her gain confidence and learn “how to dog.” Willow is fearful on leash would do best in a home with a very secure, fenced-in yard that she cannot escape from (e.g. no small holes under the fence that could be crawled through). We would recommend keeping Willow on a long leash when outside to make sure that she can be safely brought back inside when playtime is over. Apply to adopt Willow at www.huskyhouse.org.February 22, 2024, 10:34 pm

Meet Oliver! Oliver is a pomsky puppy who is looking for his loving forever home. He was saved from a puppy mill along with his two littermates, and like many puppy mill survivors, is fearful of people but shows no aggression despite his fear. Oliver enjoys being around his siblings, but has not yet been tested with other dogs. We will update his bio as he settles in more and we get to know him better, but he would do best in a home with another dog to help him gain confidence and learn “how to dog.” Apply to adopt Oliver at huskyhouse.orgFebruary 22, 2024, 10:34 pm

Story
Meet Archie! Archie is a 5-6 year old male Pomeranian who was rescued from being found left in a dumpster. Now safe at Husky House, Archie is looking for his loving forever home. Unfortunately, Archie has had a few seizures since arriving at Husky House, so he takes medication twice daily to help manage them. Poor Archie is very nervous around people, which is understandable given his history. He does not go out of his way to snap, but may growl or get snappy when people do not respect his boundaries (e.g. try to pick him up when he is uncomfortable). Archie does well with other small dogs. He has never been cat tested but would be expected to do well with cats as he is small and not overly playful. Interested in adopting Archie? Please visit www.huskyhouse.org today to fill out an application.February 22, 2024, 10:34 pm
