Starlight is a young ball of energy.  She starts off very timid and shy but once you earn her trust, she changes into an excited snuggly pup!  She came to MTM as a stray, so she is working on learning that people are ok, slowly but surely.  

Likes: Playing with the other dogs in the home, snuggling with humans and her dog friends

Dislikes: Loud noises

Personality: Starlight is shy and timid at first but once she is comfortable, she loves hitting the backyard for some zoomies.  She is your typical puppy so she will help herself to anything she thinks she can chew and LOVES toys.

Temperament: Timid, we are just now starting to earn her trust after about a month.

Energy Level: Spurts of high energy/zoomies throughout the day.  Also ok with hanging out and observing the activities of the home

Good with: Dogs and Kids over 6 years old

Not good with: NOT cat tested, timid around men but warms up eventually

House Trained: 90% house trained, will have an occasional accident every now and again

Crate Trained: Yes, this is her safe place, will require a crate in her new home

Challenges: Due to her lack of trust in people we are slowly working on basic commands but must work at her pace

Medical: Still slightly underweight.

Perfect Home: Star's perfect home would have another dog that could match her energy and want to play regularly.  She loves running and is fast so a fenced in yard would be best for her safety.  She is also nimble so a 6ft fence would be preferred. She is easily spooked and will retreat to her crate or another safe space until she feels comfortable.  Starlight currently loves her 12 and 15 year old foster kids, but she must initiate the want for affection on her terms.  

Fostered in Camp Hill, PA.
