Stardust has a wonderful disposition: He adores people, is friendly with other dogs, wants to please, is highly trainable and is curious about the world around him, according to Sandoval County Animal Services.

He was found as a stray in poor, emaciated condition, but after a little TLC in a foster home with other dogs, he appears to be “checking all the boxes” of becoming a beloved companion animal.

It does not appear Stardust has lived inside a house before, but he is learning the ropes with crate training and routine. While he presents with an energy level typical of a growing young boy, he’s not overly hyper and equally loves to lounge around with his person.

Stardust would make an excellent dog for an active person, yet he would be just as content with a less active family able to meet his needs in other engaging ways.

Stardust bonds quickly, so be careful if you’re taken by him. He will just as quickly capture your heart…and just in time for Valentine’s Day!

His adoption fee of $120 will include the neuter, microchip, all vaccines (rabies, DHPP and Bordetella), and heartworm + tickborne panel.
