Hi there! I’m Starbuck, a 7 month old Saint Bernard puppy. My family could no longer keep me and they surrendered me to the Humane Society of Elkhart County, and PetsConnect! sprung me from there.
I am a rough (long) coated Saint, and YES I DO DROOL! Boy, do I ever drool! It is not my fault, I just have a slobbery face. I am a messy drinker and when it’s hot out I get the drool strings. I can’t help it, but I think it’s something you should know about me.
Some other things you should know about me are that I’m housebroken and can stay loose in the house overnight and when my foster mom goes out. I am very well-behaved inside with excellent house manners. I prefer not to be crated. I do get on the couch, but that is allowed at my foster house. I am scared of climbing the steps and I get a little upset when my foster mom goes up there and I can’t see her, so I bark to let her know I’m worried.
I know “sit” and “lay down” and I walk pretty well on a leash, although I could use some work and due to my size, I could pull a small person over when I do tug on my leash. I am a big boy, probably over 90 pounds! And I have a lot of growing left to do.
I like playing with toys and with other dogs. I am quite submissive to my foster brother even though he is smaller than me. I show friendly interest in the cats but don’t bother them too much. I am very interested in meeting children but sometimes I bark at strangers. I have only been in foster care a few days so my foster mom is still figuring me out. But she wanted everybody on the internet to know how handsome I was and how well-behaved I was in the house, so they could start thinking about adopting me.
Speaking of that, my adoption fee is $350 and includes my neuter, vaccinations, worming, microchip and registration, and flea and HW preventive. I have tested HW neg. Like all PetsConnect! dogs my adoption also includes a Lupine brand collar and leash.
