Starla is silly, sleek, & single -- finally!  She came to rescue from a municipal shelter where she & her 9 (yes, nine!) little pups had been brought as strays.  Life as a rescue dog has rocked, but Starla is done being a mom & ready to find a new furever family of her very own.

Starla is good with other dogs of all sizes, but would be OK as the only dog & center of your attention too. People of all types are awesome, but school age humans are best (very young kids might get accidentally knocked over).

Starla is crate trained, house-trained, & knows how to use a doggie door!  Being a young athletic girl, Starla will do best in an active home who has a fenced yard... or is willing to commit to regular leash walking/running so she can work out all her happy wiggles.  Bonus points if you have any stuffy toys or dental chews to share?

If you think Starla is the dog for you, please fill out an adoption application today!

STARLA is available for adoption through K-9 Rescue of the Eastern Shore.

An adoption process is required to include filling out an online adoption application available at the following link --

Veterinary and personal reference checks, and a home visit are required PRIOR to being approved to adopt. Non-local adopters are welcome! If you have questions, please e-mail the following:
