DOB 10-21-2023 This gorgeous girl is ready for her home and Mia is just perfect. She is beautiful, smart and sweet. Mia is crate trained, working on her house training, loves to go for walks and she also loves kids, cats, bossy little Yorkies, naps, eating,playing with others and people! Mia never has a bad day, life is good and she just knows it's going to get better when she finds her home! Adoption fee is 600.00 and transport fee is 165.00. The first step in the adoption process is to fill out an online adoption application. You can find a copy of that application here. We sometimes receive a lot of interest on an animal and can't always reply to each email in a timely manner. An application does not obligate you to adopt from us, but it does show that you are serious about the adoption process. Please remember we are all volunteers. After you submit your application, please allow a few days for a volunteer to review your application. During this time your vet reference will be checked and a volunteer with determine if it is the best match for you and the animal. Applications are not approved on a first come, first serve basis. We match up the best home for the animal, so even if the pet has other applications, this does not mean he/she will be adopted to that home. Once your application has been approved a volunteer with contact you to set up a phone interview. This is the perfect time for you to ask any questions you have about the adoption process and the animal you are interested in.

Story
Last Christmas came and went, Christmas is almost here again and here I am, still waiting for a furever family. January of 2024 will mark 3 WHOLE YEARS that I will have been waiting for my happily ever after. Why doesn’t anyone pick me??   Yes, it’s true, I would prefer to be the only dog in my home, but other than that I am absolutely "pawfect"! There must be someone out there that just wants one super special dog to love. I absolutely love people, children, too! I am housetrained & crate trained (I love toys - my crate is filled with them), love car rides, love going for walks (I'm good on a leash!) but I also love to just chill out & relax. I'm all for a binge-watching marathon on Netflix! And I'm a very good sport if you want to put reindeer antlers on my head at holiday time! You can't say that about every dog!   I am about 3 1/2 years old and weigh 55 pounds. Here is the story of how I came to NorthStar. I was surrendered to a shelter in Texas, suffering from an injured paw. NorthStar saw that I needed help and after a few months of vet visits and surgery, my paw is as good as it gets!! I will never be a ballerina (perhaps clog dancing is more my style).  I am missing toes on my back paw, but that does not stop me! I am able to walk, run and play! I currently reside with two dogs. However, it would be best if I went to a home as the only pet. Although I am great with my foster siblings, I tend to react to other dogs negatively - I am not fond of kitties either. I know, I know! We all have vices and that is mine! Nobody’s perfect! I am in a GREAT foster home - my foster family love me so much but they also want to continue to help NorthStar Pet Rescue and dogs in need. If they adopt me, they can no longer foster. Got room in your house for a gal like me? I can have my bags packed in nothing flat!! If you are interested in meeting me, please fill out an adoption application at www.northstarpets.org and be sure to ask for #TwoYearsAndCounting aka Trinity TX! February 20, 2024, 3:22 pm

Story
Hi, my name is Shenandoah but I go by “Sheni.” I’ve been a NorthStar Pet Rescue dog since they sprung me from a Texas shelter in February, 2022. I had puppies a few days later and my babies have all been adopted.  I’ve been getting ready for my forever home and learning all sorts of things in my NJ foster home.  I know my name well, I walk nicely on a leash, I sit for my bowl, and give paw. I am a very good listener, smart and willing to learn plus I am fully housebroken.  I love to give my belly and carry a ball in my mouth. I also love to snuggle with my people, give kisses, and follow them around. I am very curious and want to be included in everything they do.  I love all types of dog toys and dog beds.  I’ve also learned to be a part of a dog pack!  I’ve been living with three other dogs and I’ve been looking after all of them.  I’m the only female dog here so I make sure to play and cuddle with all my new boyfriends so no one feels left out.   Some might say that I’m a little nervous. My doggie friends helped me to quickly become comfortable in my foster home, however, if one of them doesn’t trust a situation I  will protect them and show off my strong bark. When my friends are calm, I am calm.     My confidence is becoming stronger but sometimes I still need encouragement to spend time in the yard. The sounds of nearby traffic are unpredictable and can be very scary but I do love playing chase with my friends and bringing toys outside to entice a game.  I also love it when the people throw a ball for me to fetch. Once I let my playful side take over I forget all about being scared!  Because I am a cautious girl, I would really love a home with a confident canine companion to show me around and help me get settled in. I also really need people in my life that understand how important it is that I not be yelled at and who will allow me some time to build trust. It does not take long for me to fall in love with people but I need to be able to check them out and introduce myself on my own terms.  If you are looking for a best friend, search no further. I am as loyal and personable as they come and I’m ready for a forever home.  Shenandoah is about 4 1/2 years old and weighs 73 pounds. If you are interested in giving this beautiful girl a good home, please fill out an application at www.northstarpets.org and be sure to mention her name, SHENANDOAH TX!February 20, 2024, 3:22 pm

House trained: Yes Leash manners: Very good, will bring his leash to you for walks! Personality: Activity level is a great balance of mellow and play.

Don’t let the name through you off. This boy is in amazing shape and is always up for some serious fun. Fatso has everything you could want in a shepherd. Good looks, intelligence, family friendly, healthy and happy. Fatso has lived with children and adults. He is trustworthy in a house and also crate trained. Fatso is generally pretty chill around other dogs, spending some time at parks, but he is the top dog in play dates. Fatso is part of our owner referral program. He is currently located in Brooklyn. Fatso is up to date on all his shots and neutered. He has a lot of energy and probably could benefit from a one or two refresher obedience classes. He is quite agile and could be a great agility dog. Fatso has some Belgian Malinois in him so you know he loves to be active. He will keep you on your toes and provide you with plenty of exercise and at the end of the day, he can just chill out. Sedona Shepherd Sanctuary's mission is to rescue adult and senior German Shepherd and Shepherd mixes and find them loving homes.  All of our dogs are fully vetted and up to date on all their shots Our adoption area includes New Jersey, Delaware Valley, Manhattan, Southern New York and Eastern Pennsylvania.  We may adopt to Connecticut depending on circumstances.  Please visit our website at www.sedonashepherd.com.
