Retriever, Black Labrador / Mixed Breed (Large)




3 Years and 7 Months old

Starla, Starla, shining bright,
In the shelter, such a sight.
A Lab mix, bold black and white,
Wishing for her home tonight.

Her eyes twinkle, soft and kind,
A gentle heart, a brilliant mind.
Loves to fetch, a game to find,
Her dreams of family intertwined.

Starla's wishes, simple, true,
A loving family, kind and new.
With each fetch and tug she'll do,
She's hoping her wish comes through.

Starla is a loving mama, scared of new things but loving her new life 😊 She has a playful spirit with other dogs and would be best adopted with another confident dog. She deserves all the love of her dreams!

Something to Consider:

  • Puppies don't train themselves

    If you aren’t willing to train a puppy every single day, don’t get a puppy! It isn’t a one-shot deal. You have to be dedicated. And if you aren’t making progress – find someone who can help. Enroll in a puppy training class or hire a trainer. Most cities across the nation have some sort of availability for this kind of help and at different cost levels that would fit your budget.


    Puppies are going to poop a lot and pee even more; chew on everything; bite everyone; scratch people and furniture; steal things; destroy something at some point; pull on the leash; not move at all on the leash; bark; cry; beg for attention; and the list goes on. You’re going to have to walk them, bathe them, pick up everything below waist height, buy new shoes, and most importantly: TRAIN THE PUPPY NOT TO DO THESE THINGS! Ultimately, it is your responsibility to teach your puppy that this behavior is unacceptable.

  • Puppies turn into dogs...
