What a difference some good care and good meals makes!  Remember Star?  She came to us back in November from our Newark facility, who picked up the starving little dog as a stray.  Poor Star had old and new wounds and abrasions on her skeletal frame, and we shudder to think of what this sweet dog went through in her former life.  That's all a distant memory now though.  Star has nearly doubled in weight and she is the picture of good health!  She still has a sad look about her, but don't worry, sad is no longer in Star's vocabulary.  She's a sweet, fun, bubbly little lady that just loves everyone she meets!  She's about 4 years old and she has excellent manners and is well-behaved.  She's barky with other dogs, but not opposed to meeting them and seeing how it goes.  Star is ready for life in a great home and would love to meet you!  File#29329  11/14/19
