Meet Beautiful Starlene Starlene is a boxer mix who weighs about 50 lbs, although currently a little thin, she has been gaining weight again after giving birth to 6 puppies. She was picked up as a stray with 1 day-old puppies. The owner came to the shelter and tried to adopt her off the euth list. Her previous owner only wanted Starlene and not her puppies. When the shelter said, they'd have to euthanize the puppies if they didn't leave with momma, Starlene's owner was okay with that was requested them to be euthanized. The shelter said they'd have to euthanize the puppies. They said they were ok with that. Instead, the shelter had asked the rescue to take momma Starlene with her puppies. Today, Starlene is looking forward to a new beginning and better life. She currently is in a temporary foster nursing her babies for a few more weeks, then she'll get spayed (while a fundraiser is being generated) before she'll is ready for adoption. If you can foster or adopt Starlene and be her friend until she finds a 'forever loving family- she will be forever happy. This little lady has been so much. Starlene is dog-friendly, very sociable, and loves people in spite of her past neglect. She is a cutie and deserves better!
