TKEL STARZ

Star is a small girl at 60 pounds and was 4 years old on February 28, 2018.


A note from her foster mom:

Star is a star. She is friendly and affectionate, but she is also docile and obedient. She has been outside to potty several times; she seems to have grasped that concept. That white-tipped tail can really wag. 😄 She is already pretty comfortable with both me and Erin.


Star would definitely appreciate lots of hugs and ear rubs. She’s going to be a super pet.

ARKANS GEELONG

GiGi was  2 years old in August  2021 .  What a beautiful young lady.


GiGi tested small dog and cat tolerant.  She is still shy and not sure of how she can be brave.  

She has made great progress but still needs a lot of understanding and patience. A fence yard will be required for GiGi.  She loves to run laps and takes her time about coming back in. 

Gee can be cautious, stubborn, and loveable on her own terms.  

GiGi will be a wonderful companion for the right people and love them always. 

She has done well with everyone she has met as long as they let her go to them.   

You can still see the fear in her eyes.  Another dog helps her confidence along with patience and understanding.
