Hi, my name is Celestite! I'm from a shelter in South Carolina and made my way north in search of my new forever family, Apply today to meet me and find out if that's you!

* I'm a sweet girl and guessed to be a Shepherd mix around 3 years old. I currently weigh around 52 lbs.
* I'm very nervous in new situations so I need a patient family who's willing to help me build some confidence. When we first meet, I won't run over to you wanting pets. I'll probably run away and try to hide.
* It will take me a while to get used to a new environment so foster mom says I MUST have a secure fenced in yard to keep me safe. Iโ€™m known to be an escape artist so a fence at least 6 ft tall would be best.
* Foster mom is working on bringing me out of my shell and thinks cheese ๐Ÿง€ may be the way to my heart!
* I appear to be house trained. I haven't had any accidents in foster mom's house.
* My crate is my safe place and my new family must have one! I sleep through the night very quietly.
* When my foster mom tells me "no", I am a pretty good listener.
* I have two foster doggy sisters who I love! We have fun hanging out and playing together.
*I love to chase ๐Ÿฟ๏ธ , ๐Ÿ‡ and ๐Ÿฆœ but who doesn't, right? Foster mom thinks I probably shouldn't be in a home with cats... ๐Ÿ™€

* Click here, here, here, here and here to see me having fun.

Celestite is up-to-date on her vaccinations and has been spayed. She is best in a home without small children and is not suitable in an apartment, condo or other urban setting. Celestite is currently being fostered in Henrico, VA.

All adult dogs, cats, and kittens are altered prior to adoption. Puppies too young to be altered at the time of adoption must be brought to our partner vet in Davidsonville, MD for spay or neuter paid for by Operation Paws for Homes by 6 months of age. Adopters may choose to have the procedure done at their own vet before 6 months of age and be reimbursed the amount that the rescue would pay our partner vet in Davidsonville.

This dog's bio is based off the experiences of the foster and/or volunteers of OPH as well as any information that we received from the shelter or previous owner. This is very important because it means that while they may act one way in the fosterโ€™s home, you may experience something different in your home.
