Star

StubbyDog’s Rescue Dog of the Week is sponsored by Zobo Pet Products, who will be giving away a free collar for every dog adopted through this program.

Hi! My name is Star and I am a 3-year-old white American Pit Bull Terrier mix! I was surrendered to HSHC [Humane Society for Hamilton County] on May 14, 2011 because my owners didn’t have enough time for me. When I came to the shelter, I was a mess! I had a very bad skin allergy due to a severe flea infestation. Thanks to one of the veterinarians that they work with, the staff was able to get me on medication and get me better! They are the best!

I am a very special girl. You would never know by looking at the way I act that I am deaf. Just because I have a hearing disability doesn’t mean I don’t live my life to the fullest! I absolutely love to play! If I could, I would play all day, especially tag! Tag is my favorite! I also LOVE toys! If you can throw it, I’ll play with it! I am also very good at doing the teeter totter and jumping through the agility hoop in our play yard!

Did you know that even deaf dogs can learn the same tricks as dogs that don’t have hearing disabilities? I am being worked with on a daily basis by a dedicated staff and dog walkers and thanks to them, I am quickly learning hand signal commands! I’ve already got “sit” down pat and am working on “walking like a lady on the leash,” “leave it/take it,” and “stay!” I am a VERY quick learner….just ask anyone!

I am still at the shelter looking for that special, forever home. I would love to be adopted by an active family, with older children, who will give me love, attention, and continue to work with me to keep me in tip-top shape, both mentally and physically! If you have any questions about me, feel free to ask! I am told that I would do best in a family with kids over 10 because I love to play! My adopter must also be 21 years old to adopt me.

Did I mention I am at the shelter, which is located in Noblesville, Indiana? You can check them out here. Oh yeah, will you please stop by Facebook page? Tell your friends too, please!
