I hope you are having a great day! It is a long weekend and I have been busy helping Momma get caught up so we can take some time off. I love long weekends!
Today I have two wonderful guests to introduce to you. Starla is a 5 year old Cattle Dog Mix. She is here visiting with her Mom, Alanna.
Abby: What is Starla's background and how did she end up in rescue?
Alanna: Starla was a pregnant stray in Texas when she was found. She was super friendly and happy be rescued. Once she had her puppies, a rescue group, Pet Rescue Alliance, transported her up to Virginia to be adopted. She lived with her foster family for almost 3 months in Washington, D.C. before I adopted her.
Abby: How were Starla's first days at her new home?
Alanna: Starla was a very friendly dog, however still wary of me. She refused to play with any toys or sleep next to my bed for a couple weeks. However, she was very well behaved and knew to sit while waiting for her dinner and to come get me if she needed to go outside.
Abby: What are a few of Starla's favorite things?
Alanna: Starla's favorite things are chasing squirrels and doing tricks for treats.
Abby: Do you have any tips for people who want to adopt a rescue pet?
Alanna: Take your time and think about your lifestyle, how it will change, and what kind of dog would work best with that lifestyle.
Abby: Is there a rescue group you want to send a shout out to (with link to group?)
Alanna: https://www.facebook.com/petrescuealliance, Pet Rescue Alliance
Thank you, Alanna and Starla, for visiting today. Starla, I love your pictures and think chasing squirrels sounds like lots of fun! We have something in common -- I was also rescued as a stray in Texas, and then traveled to my forever home.
If you have a question or comment for Starla, I hope you'll leave a message below. If you have a special rescued pet who would like to be featured here, please let me know that, too.
Have a wonderful weekend!
