Extremely urgent!!! Stark's owner died and now Stark faces death!! Foster or adopter needed urgently! 'Stark was surrendered after his owner died and we could see his heartbreak every time we passed his cage. The shelter is a scary place for dogs and Stark had a hard time adjusting at first. After a few days and a lot of whale eyes, he decided he was ready to leave his kennel. We took it slow and didn't do much interacting the first time out. He sniffed and searched mostly. Stark won't take treats from my hand outside but gobbles them down if I toss them on the ground. He gave me a blank stare when I asked him to sit and I didn't want to overwhelm him while we were getting to know each other. What was very clear is Stark likes other dogs. Every time one walked by his body noticeably released some tension and his tail wagged! He got more brave with me every dog that passes, even initiating some sniffs and licking my leg like a weirdo. Stark let me lightly pet him though he clearly wasn't ready for a love fest. The next time day I had him out, he was super easy. He met a doggy friend and even leaned against me for comfort. Going back to his kennel is hard for him. Thankfully he can't resist the high value treats and will follow them in. He was probably very loved by his last owner and doesn't understand why he's alone.' He is 3 years old. Please consider saving this lovebug today before it is too late. Fostering is free of charge and everything is provided. Volunteers are willing to help with transport.
