Star | Pet of the Week

By on July 19, 2019 at 11:49 am

Hi, I’m Star, I like to play with other dogs in the play yard and like to play ball. I’m a gentle girl and like to receive petting and love. Going on car rides and playing in the park are things I enjoy. I don’t care for cats but I do play well with other dogs. Friendly, sweet, and playful are names I’ve been called, I hope you come meet me soon.  Watch Star and Ellie play during play groups.
