Star came to Peppertree from a Kentucky shelter after being found as a stray. As a 12 year old, Star has so much love to give! She loves to go out on walks and be outside. As you can imagine, she’s very easy on the leash, but still has a prey drive when it comes to squirrels. Surprisingly, even with some vision issues and arthritis, she will still run after them and chase them up a tree! Once tired from walking, Star loves to find the largest pillow available for a nap. When she’s not napping or walking, Star can be found close by, looking for attention and treats. She doesn’t need much, just a quiet home full of love!

We’re still working on house training with Star. For the most part, she’s great about not having any accidents in the house but occasionally there are presents left when we wake up in the morning. It’s something that we’re working on but Star loves treats and is improving. She’s a great passenger in the car. Star does have limited vision, limited hearing, and arthritis but still has so much love to give! Because of her mobility difficulties, she will need a home with limited steps. If you’re looking for a companion or a walking buddy, Star may be perfect for you!
