Estrella is mostly black with white splashes including around her muzzle, neck, chest, and her feet.
Estrella is very affectionate and calm, and loves taking naps. You will have a new shadow once she gets accustomed to you, following you wherever you go, and cozying up to you whenever she gets a chance. She will do great with someone who is home most of the time (during and post-covid-19) and who wants to provide her with tons of affection and cuddles.
Estrella is completely house-trained and crate-trained. She can totally be trusted to roam free in the home and doesn't bother any belongings. I think everything Estrella does is cute! She likes to lick my nose, which I find very endearing. She has a hindlimb patella that forces her to rely on her other hindleg, but it doesn't slow her down. During our walks I'm often increasing my pace to match hers! Estrella is good around both dogs and cats.
Estrella is up-to-date on vaccinations, spayed, and heartworm negative. She has a heart murmur and a hindlimb patella. She also had a tumor removed, and will need to be monitored in case additional tumors arise.
Estrella's owners lost their home and had to move.
