Starfish

Starfish
Meet Starfish!
This sweet girl is about 3 years old. She is likely a put bull mix but possibly with dogo argentino based on where she was found in the city. There is a breeder in the area. She was found as a stray and never claimed. This girl is a diamond in the rough. She will literally give her all for you. She is a little happy go lucky and over the top when meeting people but quickly settles once you let her know what is expected of her. If you let her jump all over you she will 😉
Starfish or “Fish” as her foster mom calls her gets along well with the other foster dogs in her home. She is awaiting her spay appointment along with another foster dog and they like to try to see who is boss but around all the others she is just fine. Once she is spayed that will cut down on some hormones and she will lose some of that need for top dog. She was likely never told right and wrong and she is very easily directed to the right way.
We are currently working on leash walking and she is doing well. This girl would love an active home. She could be a great running or hiking partner. We have not seen her with cats but they would likely be a no go 🙁
Fish is not the perfect dog and I know that she will likely not be the top of anyone’s adoption list. I wanted more time to work with her and training but the truth is that we are inundated with dogs and we need to place the ones we have. Someone who is committed to adopting a dog and showing them how to thrive is all we ask for. We are here to help along the way.
If you would like to meet Fish and let her show you her love of balls, please fill out an application at rpaw.org
Adoption fee is $250
