TO BE KILLED - 8/10/2018
She had it all, till she had nothing. STAR was a precious, perfect, pampered family pet who loved people big and small, and who was friendly, relaxed, social and sweet with everyone – even strangers. She would meet you and instantly fall in love with you, trying to get you to pet her as she wiggled her little tushy at your feet. She adored children and played gently with them. She was polite to other dogs, and she even loved cats – often dropping down to lay beside them for a snuggle. We can’t imagine how anyone could give up this beautiful, big hearted girl over “housing.” We’d sleep in the car before giving up such a treasure. But now here she is, after spending all 5 years of her life within a family home, and she is scared. Why wouldn’t she be. She’s only been at the Brooklyn Center less than THREE days, not even time to warm her blankets in this big, loud, dirty and scary place where she spends her entire day in a windowless kennel desperate to go home. She searches every face for the family who has heartlessly left her behind as they moved on to their new digs. She was super friendly, kissing and sweet on intake, true to her personality because in truth, she is a marshmallow of a dog with a sterling resume of skills. She even loved long walks on or off leash--- off leash she stuck right by her family’s side, and on leash she NEVER pulled. Housetrained, she would sleep in her own bed, and she NEVER EVER guarded her things. We are heartbroken for STAR, because she truly IS a star. We are advocating hard for her, and we are begging – please foster or adopt this sweet, sad brindle beautiy now. Please PRIVATE MESSAGE our page or email us at Must Love Dogs if you can give sweet STAR a soft place to land. She waits, with her broken heart and massive hope, for you.

INTAKE BEHAVIOR - Date of intake:: 8/5/2018. Summary:: Friendly and allowed all handling
MEDICAL BEHAVIOR - Date of initial:: 8/6/2018. Summary:: Nervous and fearful
ENERGY LEVEL:: Star displays a low activity level in the care center.
BEHAVIOR DETERMINATION:: ADULT ONLY HOME
Behavior Asilomar: TM - Treatable-Manageable
Recommendations:: No children (under 13). Recommendations comments:: No children: Due to how uncomfortable Star is currently with touch and novel stimuli, we feel that an adult-only home would be most beneficial at this time.
Potential challenges: : Fearful. Potential challenges comments:: Fearful: Star has shown high levels of fear in the care center in each interaction, though she manages her stress well and has not escalated to warning signs. She needs a very slow approach and the ability to warm up to new people and new environments at her own pace. Star should be permitted to initiate interactions and solicit attention when she feels comfortable, rather than being forced to interact.
