Featured Dog today is....."Starr"

More than 6 1/2 yrs ago Starr and her litter mates, who are Central Asian Shepherds, found themselves looking for loving homes. Starr was lucky enough to be adopted by Robin Miller.

Robin runs a B & B in northern CA and also raises horses. Starr is the faithful guardian to both Robin and the farm, including the mini horses. Robin writes:
"Starr is quite a big girl as livestock guardian dogs are and normally quite serious about her job protecting the horses. Despite that, she desperately wants to be a "little" dog whenever three of our bed & breakfast guest dogs arrive. The three belong to two other couples and the dogs are dachshunds. There whole bodies are about the size of Starr's head. So, she will crouch as low to the ground as possible to reduce any intimidation (in her mind!) and just desperately wants them to run and play with her. The dachshunds will race up and down her fence line while Starr "plays" by racing back and forth along with them. Her face peels back in a smile and she just loves it!"
I don't know about you guys, but I, for one, would love to see that for myself. :-) Great job, Starr, what a beautiful girl she is.

As you might have already seen, the 10 mo male in the Pasadena shelter is going to Caucasian Ovcharka rescue, so he is no longer in danger! This is great news, Angie Wheat does an amazing job rescuing these dogs.

Also, "Arlo", the dog listed as urgent in a WV shelter a couple of weeks ago is being adopted by his foster family!

We have a few pending adoptions, too:

  • Dawn in WA

  • Tank in CA

  • Coby in CA

  • Norah in AZ

  • Minka in OH

  • Clio in OH


Unfortunately we do still have a few dogs in urgent need of fosters or adoption.

  • Sammy in TX

  • Jack in CO

  • Patches in TX

You can find their listings and the listings of our other Urgent dogs here:
