Star came to us after her family got divorced. She is a 6 year old dachshund Pomeranian mix although we've also had people say she looks like she might have some corgi in her. She was shaved down right before she came to us, normally she does have a long coat. She does get along with other dogs but prefers to be the dominant dog in the house. She is also fostered with a cat who she will bark at occasionally but she doesn't chase him and otherwise leaves him alone. She takes a little bit to warm up to new people but once she does she likes your attention. She does not need a lot of exercise, she is perfectly content going out to do her business and then coming in and taking a nap in her bed. She does walk well on a leash and she is fully potty trained. If you think you might be the perfect fit for Star, fill out an application today!
If you are interested in adopting, please go to our website at www.castawaypetrescue.org and fill out an adoption application. An adoption counselor will contact you. Please bring any dogs, children, and decision makers to your appointment. Be prepared to adopt and take your new family member home that day if we have a match.
Please note that adoption counselors will only know of your interest if you submit an application. They do not see emails sent to the administration email account. The adoption counselor can answer your questions when they call after receiving your application. Please remember we are an all volunteer organization.
