#TwoYearsAndCounting aka Trinity TX

Last Christmas came and went, Christmas is almost here again and here I am, still waiting for a furever family. January of 2024 will mark 3 WHOLE YEARS that I will have been waiting for my happily ever after. Why doesn’t anyone pick me??

Yes, it’s true, I would prefer to be the only dog in my home, but other than that I am absolutely "pawfect"! There must be someone out there that just wants one super special dog to love.
I absolutely love people, children, too! I am housetrained & crate trained (I love toys - my crate is filled with them), love car rides, love going for walks (I'm good on a leash!) but I also love to just chill out & relax. I'm all for a binge-watching marathon on Netflix! And I'm a very good sport if you want to put reindeer antlers on my head at holiday time! You can't say that about every dog!

I am about 3 1/2 years old and weigh 55 pounds. Here is the story of how I came to NorthStar. I was surrendered to a shelter in Texas, suffering from an injured paw. NorthStar saw that I needed help and after a few months of vet visits and surgery, my paw is as good as it gets!! I will never be a ballerina (perhaps clog dancing is more my style). I am missing toes on my back paw, but that does not stop me! I am able to walk, run and play!
I currently reside with two dogs. However, it would be best if I went to a home as the only pet. Although I am great with my foster siblings, I tend to react to other dogs negatively - I am not fond of kitties either. I know, I know! We all have vices and that is mine! Nobody’s perfect!

I am in a GREAT foster home - my foster family love me so much but they also want to continue to help NorthStar Pet Rescue and dogs in need. If they adopt me, they can no longer foster. Got room in your house for a gal like me? I can have my bags packed in nothing flat!!
