40 lbs.

Crate trained!


Welcome Starling! Starling is a sweet 3-year old dog, and weighs 40 pounds.

Starling is housebroken! She hasn’t had any accidents inside the house, and does well with a consistent routine. Starling is also kennel trained, but does sometimes need a little added encouragement to go into her kennel. She does best when she has sturdy toys and mental stimulation while left alone in her kennel, but is otherwise great in her kennel! Starling has learned “sit,” “leave it,” and is working on learning “lay down.” Starling is very food motivated – especially if she is offered peanut butter!

Starling needs to be the only animal in the house. She would do fine with a confident cat and has previously lived with cats. One of her former cat housemates was particularly fond of Starling, and they could often be found hanging out together. But Starling will pester a scared cat if not given the proper introduction. Starling gets very anxious when she sees other dogs. Foster Mom is currently working with Starling to increase Starling’s comfortableness around other dogs, but ultimately Starling needs to be the only dog in the home.

Starling loves being around people of all ages! She will confidently go up to new people, and loves to shower her human friends with dog kisses. Starling is a bit of a velcro-dog, and loves to follow around her people and stay close to them. One of her favorite past-times is to cuddle up and nap on Foster Mom – Starling thinks dogs of any size can be a lap dog. As far as energy goes, Starling is content with long walks, or a few short walks followed by a play session.

Starling is very charming – she has an endless supply of love, and just wants to share all of it with her people! Think you’re ready to shower Starling with love? Contact us today!
