Cartman's Critters! Meet STAR!

April 5th, 2024 11:00am
MEET STAR!!! The name is fitting, because Star's personality shines as bright as a star! She is a total babe, who is as bubbly as she is goofy. Star's #zoomies are hilarious when she's happy! What makes her happy you ask? She loves to be pet, she loves belly rubs, and treats from her favorite people. Star is shy of new faces at first, but warms up quickly and wants nothing but loveonce she realizes that you are safe. This star is bright and smart, ready to learn! LOVES treats! No kitty friends for her, please, but she has potential with other dog friends and mature kids 12 and up! Star does have Lyme Disease, but I is not symptomatic. 95% of dogs will never become symptomatic. Star's new family will need to monitor her for signs of arthritis or joint pain as well as fever/illness and consult with their veterinarian. She is well worth the little bit of extra monitoring! Come meet this sweet and silly Star today!
