Additional Details:

Starburst is a tall beautiful, dark red, male that raced at a thin 66lbs. He actually a pretty tall guy for his weight. His birthday is July 10, 2009. He is friendly and sweet and loves people. The vet that treated him said that he was one of the most tolerant and sweetest dogs she had met. When they put him up on the table to re do some staples, instead of struggling, he just laid there and wagged his tail, happy to be getting attention. He didn't want to get up when they were done, because he was enjoying the attention so much, in spite of getting stapled. Starburst passed his cat and small dog tests and is living in a foster home with a small dog, so should do fine in an adoptive home with either. Starburst crates quietly and potties well on leash, so may be a good choice for townhouse or apartment living. He pulls on leash and we are working on that. This is a super sweet, loving guy that wants to please. He gets along well with the dogs in his foster home. If the play gets rough he walks away and chooses not to get involved. Such a sweet, sweet personality. We think he would do really well with kids because of his sweet nature, willingness to please and choosing to walk away instead of defending himself. He was a big star at meet and greets. He feels it is his job to personally greet every person he sees. No one is going to get by without a kiss, a snuggle or a lean. He is almost like a cat rubbing on people.

Star was adopted by the Richardson Family of Myrtle Beach in December of 2011 when he was two and a half years old. He lived with them for another 6 years and passed away in 2019 at the age of 10.
