A delightful 5 lbs. six-month-old chi puppy, remarkably, found as a stray ending up in the shelter. This little puppy is still timid and needs a quiet stable home. CrisisDogsNC rescued Starkley from the shelter, and his foster finds him to be a “cuddle bunny,” that loves people and other dogs. However, Starkley is afraid of strangers, so he will need a very low-key home. His foster writes: Starkley will snap/growl/bark at new people, he whines/screams when he is scared, but he will settle down. He is not a dog to take around places. Needs a steady quiet routine. He like dogs and will do well with a dog buddy at home." We do not know about cats or kids. He appears to be housetrained and leash trained. What more can we say about an adorable little pup? No small kids. Starkey is looking for a lifetime commitment so please consider the next 15 years before applying for him. Apply on CrisisDogsNC.org. We reply only to completed applications, no calls. Excellent vet reference and virtual home visit required. Your prior or current dog must be on year-round heartworm prevention. We prefer fenced yard, but this is not required for all our dogs. We transport by land or air whenever possible.
