She is a complete sweetheart and loves people of all shapes and sizes. She is not a pushy dog at all, and because her life has been difficult, loves any attention she gets. Star knows her basic obedience commands and wants to please. She actually seems to have a smile on her face and has a mischievous sense of humor.Star came to the kennel with two of her puppies, Paris and Presley and was a great mom. The puppies have found homes and Star has been spayed so it is her turn now. If you are looking for a sweet, loving and fun dog, Star is your girl.We have lots of great dogs and always need volunteers to help them.
