Adopt Stiorra

*PLEASE NOTE: The first step in the process is to complete an adoption application, which can be found here: Adoption Application

Please meet Stiorra, an absolutely stunning Lab mix who came to us from Bakersfield Animal Shelter.  Stiorra was very shut down and shy in her kennel at the shelter and they reached out for rescue help as they knew she would just continue to shut down in that environment.

Stiorra has been in foster care for the last several weeks and she has absolutely blossomed into an incredible pup.  Stiorra is initially timid of new situations, getting into the car and new people but she warms up very quickly.  She conquers her fears very easily and is a brave girl!  She has a decent amount of energy and would benefit from an active family who is able to give her several good walks a day and even play some games of  fetch... her favorite!

Stiorra does well with other dogs and frequents the dog park with her foster family often.  She also has play dates with other dogs inside the home and does well. If there is another dog in Stiorra's forever family there needs to be a proper introduction done.  Stiorra will easily be just fine as an only dog with lots of opportunities to socialize outside of the home...she even LOVES doggy daycare!

• Home visits are required prior to being considered for adoption.

• Completed application and approved home visit do NOT guarantee adoption

• We do not ship our dogs

I attest all information I provided above is true. I promise to care for the dog to the best of my ability, with the full intent of keeping the dog for the duration of its life.
