527 Star

Adult - Female
Adopted

Star is a 17 month old 74 pound yellow female. She’s the lazy lab in the group. Not as big as a couple of her sisters, but still has a few pounds to lose. The dogs were free fed and Star helped herself. She’s already on a diet and exercise program to lose those last 10 pounds. We got a call–a woman was helping her neighbor to find homes for his 4 labs after he suffered a couple strokes and could no longer care for himself let alone 4 young labs. He purchased them to breed and sadly they got no training and lived on a small deck where they repeatedly jumped the railing and got picked up by animal control. The neighbor taught them ‘sit’ but that’s all they knew when we rescued them. They are now learning about house training, crate training, learning to walk on a leash and go for walks. Most of all, they are loving running and playing on grass! Star plays a little and then lays on the lawn and watches the others run by. They are social dogs for not having much socialization. They do look to each other for support and it will take time and patience for each of them to learn to live more independently. Star and her sisters are not dogs you can leave alone in the house or yard and go to work. They would be very unhappy.
