Story
Spud is a 14 week old scruffy Terrier puppy (as of 2/27) who has defeated the odds! This little boy was found on the streets of Texas and was taken in by a kind soul. Unfortunately he became sick with Parvo but the good news is that he beat the virus and is doing amazingly well in his foster home. Spud is an extremely good boy who he is potty trained and great with all cats/dogs/people. The best part is he is a well behaved and calm for being just a puppy. He is still trying to learn commands but with the right home he will get it no time!  If you would like to give Spud the loving home where he will get the attention & training a puppy needs, please fill out an application at www.northstarpets.org and be sure to ask for SPUD TX!March 4, 2024, 9:27 pm

Story
FERRIS is a fun, playful 2 year old Border/Heeler looking for an active human to enjoy life together. This boy is an athletic guy who would be a perfect hiking partner with his great recall and love of adventures. Ferris loves to be outside, running, playing chase, keep away and then hang out for movie time inside. He enjoys getting in the water and playing in the pool. Ferris is a sweet, loving guy who wants to be included in his human's life and, of course, get belly rubs. He is both housetrained & crate trained. He's good with all active female dogs who want to play, but dominant male dogs would not be a good fit. He'd be happy with a playful female dog in the home or also as an only dog with an active human. Ferris is an intelligent guy who has learned basic commands 'sit, crate, come inside' and would love to learn more if taught. He's a very food motivated boy. He listens well to his human, looks to them for direction and wants to please.  Ferris rides well in the car. He sleeps through the night in his crate, but he'd be happy on a dog bed in your room. He also walks well on leash. Ferris can be left home alone for several hours, because he does not have any separation anxiety. He's happy to entertain himself in the yard while you work on the computer. He's not a big barker, but will 'talk' to the squirrels and can be vocal in initiating play.  Ferris is best with children over 10, due to his energy level. He has not been cat tested, so we will not be adopting him to a home with cats. Only homes with a fenced yard where he will not be left alone for long hours will be considered.  Ferris is 55 lbs. neutered, microchipped, up to date on vaccines, including rabies, heartworm negative and is current on prevention.    If you are interested in adopting Ferris, please email mkpeinado@yahoo.com. His adoption fee is $300 and transport fee is $250. NOTE: This pet is being shared by NorthStar Pet Rescue on behalf of another organization or individual and is not a NorthStar Pet Rescue dog. NorthStar cannot guarantee the accuracy of this listing, and any applications and inquiries about this pet made will be sent to the originator.   March 4, 2024, 9:27 pm

Story
This scruffy boy is Herbie, a fun-loving Schnauzer mix who is 16 months old and weighs 18 pounds. He is completely vetted, neutered, housebroken and leash trained. He is dog friendly (but doesn’t love huge dogs) and kid friendly. He does not like cats. He will be coming to NJ with his brother Sparky to find a forever home. Herbie is the more outgoing of the 2 pups while Sparky is initially a little shy until he gets to know you. Herbie enjoys walking and sniffing out his area - he loves all the smells life has to offer. Herbie loves everyone and taking walks, playing with his foster sibs, running around, cuddling, sleeping at night and going on adventures. Herbie is a good eater but not food aggressive with his three foster sibs. He would make a great family pet in an active family.  If you'd like to meet Herbie when he arrives in NJ, please complete an adoption application at www.northstarpets.org and be sure to ask for him by name!March 4, 2024, 9:27 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!March 4, 2024, 9:27 pm

Story
Schnitzel is so gentle and caring, he loves being in your lap and staying by your side. At the shelter he was calm and quiet in the kennel, easy to handle and was friendly with everyone he met. In his foster home he is good with other dogs and wanted to play with the dog savvy cat! Schnitzel is a Schnauzer puppy 4-5 months old, weighing 14 pounds. He has some hair loss around his eyes and smells a bit yeasty it but appears just to be a minor flare up of demodex. He is being treated now that he's been rescued by NorthStar and we're confident he will soon be feeling and looking a whole lot better! Schnitzel has a really cool brindle undercoat pattern that looks even better in person. Foster mom says Schnitzel slept all night in his kennel without any accidents. Now he is trying to decide which toy he wants to chew on. She lined them up on the coffee table. So far he has almost every single one off the table and on the couch with him, LOL. Schnitzel knows some commands - he is a very smart boy! He's got looks as well as brains!    This puppy is just that. A puppy. He likes to play with the cat toys and the squishy stuffed dog toys. He probably would like someone closer to his size and spunk to play with. He tries to play with Maurice the cat and tries to befriend Sébastian the cat. Sébastian is a no go and Maurice will play chase with him for a bit. He is resilient as well as confident but he does need reassurance and then a gentle hand to remind him how to be a good dog. He's a lap dog, follows under your feet. He wants to be the center of your world and be completely involved in it. He's been a good puppy so far. Potty training is still a work in progress though. Schnitzel is looking for an owner who will give him the love and security every dog deserves in a forever home. If you'd like to meet him when he arrives in NJ, please fill out an adoption form at www.northstarpets.org and ask for SCHNITZEL TX!March 4, 2024, 9:27 pm

Story
Ritchie is a 9 mo old sweetheart of a pup! The shelter listed him as a Corgi/Dachshund mix but he is a true Heinz 57. He is the happiest dog I have ever met, playful and loving, always up for a new adventure. He walks great on a leash, is crate trained, neutered, fully vetted, and totally healthy! Ritchie would make a perfect dog for a family, a couple, really anyone. He loves to snuggle up close at night after a full day of playing. He likes to be near his person/people but will lay down and nap after a good game of fetch. He brings the ball right back every time. Ritchie found himself in a Texas shelter after being turned in as a stray. He got adopted but his adopter started having health problems so Richie was taken back to the shelter. This precious boy never lost hope and remained the happy go lucky guy he is until we pulled him into rescue. If you'd like to give Ritchie the loving & secure forever home he deserves, please complete an adoption application at www.northstarpets.org and be sure to ask for him by name - RITCHIE TX!March 4, 2024, 9:27 pm
