These dogs are all seeking loving and permanent homes. The first step is the online pre-app, then a family interview

Meet Rita 

Approximate Age: Young
Likely Breed: Catahoula Mix
About Me: My name is Rita! I am beautiful and athletic with sky-blue eyes. I love to run and play and will be a perfect companion for an active, athletic owner! I have beautiful form when I run and am a great jumper – I can hop a six-foot fence with no problem so a secure environment is a must! The volunteers at S.T.A.A.R. feel like I would be a great competitor if someone wanted to teach me how to work agility courses or even how to be a Dock Dog! I can’t wait to run and play with my forever person!

Meet Biscuit

Approximate Age: Young 
Likely Breed: Lab Mix
About Me: My name is Biscuit! I am the whole package – brawn and brains! I’m super athletic and I love to run. I am great on-leash, too! Plus, I’m super smart and already know some commands, including “sit” and “come.” I am a super happy dog who will do great in a home where I can get lots of attention from my people and maybe even another dog to play with! I will be great for someone who wants to spend lots of time walking, playing, and teaching me all sorts of new tricks!!

Meet Andy 

Approximate Age: Adult
Likely Breed: Lab Mix
About Me: I’m Andy! I am tall, thin, and super enthusiastic! I love to run and play with my sister, Abby! I may be middle-aged but I still have lots of energy and am S.T.A.A.R.’s resident watchdog! I like to stand on top of my Igloo and watch for strangers so that I can let everyone know about any visitors! I can’t wait to find a home where I can help my new family by keeping an eye on things!

Meet Dee Dee

Approximate Age: Adult
Likely Breed: Staffordshire Terrier
About Me: I’m Dee Dee! I have big blue eyes and a silly smile! I came to S.T.A.A.R through a rescue group who identified me as deaf dog and knew S.T.A.A.R. would teach me sign language. Jokes on them, I can hear just fine! I am an absolute sweetheart who is looking for a family to give me lots of love and who will want lots of kisses in exchange! My pre-S.T.A.A.R. days have made me a little wary of men so I will do best with a female owner, preferably one with Staffie experience. I get along great with most pets but let’s plan a meet and greet with any existing pets before making me a permanent member of the family!

Meet Caitlyn

Approximate Age: Young
Likely Breed: Catahoula Mix
About Me: I’m Caitlyn! I have big blue eyes and a beautiful coat – look at how pretty I am! Everyone at S.T.A.A.R. loves to tell me that I am just awesome, super sweet, and trainable. In fact, I already know some tricks, like how to spin for treats! I get along great with everyone and would be a great new addition to any home.

Meet Misha

Approximate Age: Adult
Likely Breed: Shepherd-Malamute
About Me: I’m Misha! I have one blue eye and one brown eye and am so dog-gone cute! I am calm, loving, and affectionate and I love to sit on chairs so that I can hang out with my people! I love to be petted, brushed and given treats. My calm, relaxed demeanor will be a great addition to any family – especially one with kids! I am a super loving girl and I would be so happy if I could finally find the perfect place to call home.
 

Meet Sassy

Approximate Age: Adult
Likely Breed: Dutch Shepherd Mix
About Me: Hi everyone, my name is Sassy! Don’t worry, though, I won’t give any attitude! I am very bright and would love to learn from my people! I have a very happy disposition and never met a person or pup who wasn’t my friend!  I’m a great, classic, old-school kind of a dog, one that might remind you of a dog from your childhood! I would love to find a home, one where I can claim my people for my very own. 

Meet Rascal

Approximate Age: Adult
Likely Breed: Border Collie-Blue Heeler Mix
About Me: Hello, I’m Rascal! I’m a patient, energetic, cattle dog and the resident brainiac! I already know how to sit and stay, and that is before my forever people help teach me even more! I am very observant and if I need something I will find a way to tell you. I have an endearing habit – once I trust someone, I like to lean on them and wait for hugs and pets! I am a super cool, good dog with lots of energy but I also love to just hang out! I will make a loyal companion for anyone looking for a new best friend!

Meet Dominique

Approximate Age: Adult
Likely Breed: American Foxhound Mix
About Me: I’m Dominique! I am smart, curious, and super happy! I just love to lay in the grass and roll around! It makes me smile. I can be a little cautious but I am fit and athletic so, once I get acquainted, I would love to play with all members of a new family! SInce I have been at S.T.A.A.R., I have been close friends with Rascal. Although we do not have to be adopted together, we could make a great team!

Meet  Bailey

Approximate Age: Young
Likely Breed: Shepherd Mix
About Me: My name is Bailey! I am tall, dark, and handsome, whatever that means! I’m part of the B-Pup litter who were rescued from the 3rd Ward . When we were found, we were feral doggies who had learned to take care of ourselves! S.T.A.A.R. has taught me how to trust people more and, while I am still a little cautious of people, my curiosity helps me warm up to them. Once I do, I am a very smart and will be a loyal new friend!
 

Meet Breanna

Approximate Age: Young
 
Likely Breed: Shepherd Mix
About Me: My name is Breanna, another B-Pup! I am special because I am the only one of my siblings with a golden coat! I still have a way to go with trusting people, I’m extremely shy. But I am ready to spread my wings and find a forever home! I would love an owner who is quiet, patient, and loving so that I can continue getting better at trusting people!
 

Meet Skye

Approximate Age: Adult
Likely Breed: Brittney Spaniel-Wheaten Mix
About Me: My name is Skye! I’m an S-Pup along with Scout and Scamp, my siblings. I think of myself as a lap dog and love to sit on, or right next to, my people! I am very smart but a bit chunky. I say I’m just big boned! I’d love to go on walks to get in shape with my forever people!

Meet Ben

Approximate Age: Young
 
Likely Breed: Shepherd Mix
 
About Me: Hi y’all, I’m Ben! I’m another B-Pup from the 3rd ward. I still remember my feral days and am a work-in-progress. I am very shy and am still learning how to trust people again. But I have been told  that my black and brown coat is very pretty and that I have a beautiful face! I may not be quite ready to leave S.T.A.A.R. yet but I’ll keep an eye out for you when you come meet my friends!

 

 

Meet Bella

Approximate Age: Young
 
Likely Breed: Shepherd Mix
 
About Me: I’m Bella! I’m another B-Pup. I’m super chill. At S.T.A.A.R., I’ve acclimated to people and now I love to be brushed and petted!

Likely Breed: Shepherd Mix
 
About Me: My name is Bea! I’m a B-Pup representing the 3rd Ward, too. I am tall, nearly all black, and beautiful.

I also like to let everyone know when somebody new comes around! I will do best with a patient owner who is willing to help bring out my personality!

Meet Jude

Approximate Age: Adult
 
Likely Breed: Golden Retriever Mix
About Me: My name is Jude! I am probably another permanent S.T.A.A.R. resident but I love my home here.  I am a special needs dog, both diabetic and blind. I have been living at S.T.A.A.R. since I was a young dog, and am very happy and love to meet new people. I have a great sense of hearing and get used to my surroundings pretty quickly. You can say hi to me when you come to meet some of my S.T.A.A.R. friends! And, of course, if you find it in your heart to give me a forever home, my friends at S.T.A.A.R. would be happy to meet and talk to you!
