Hi, My name is a Star. I'm a sweet 4 year old pittie. I'm looking for a family to take me home. I love kids, walkies, and laps. I'm currently on a diet to get my figure back. My family gave me and my sister and 2 brothers up because they lost their home. I'd really like a forever home. I'm such a good girl!
