Pet of the Week: House Source/Street Tails

This gentle soul could use a home.

We bet your home could use a House.

Please meet House, our new pet of the week:

House petSource/Street Tails

The perfect pet to lean on.

NAME:      House

AGE:          6 years-old

BREED:     Mastiff Mix

TEMPERMENT: Sweet, docile, and obedient. He has a basic level of training and has previously lived with both children and other dogs.

FUN FACTS/BRIEF BIO:  House is a gentle soul who is eager to put his kennel days behind him and find somewhere comfortable to live the simple life. This well-mannered six-year-old Mastiff Mix requires very little, if you have a warm lap and lots of love to offer he’s your guy! He knows basic commands, is house trained, and is calm and quiet when left alone. Before arriving at STAR House lived in a home with both children and other dogs, and would be a valued addition to any family. 

This sweet boy just wants a human to be close to, and will show his appreciation by giving you a gentle leg lean. Adopt House by filling out an application at
