Starla was born April 2005 and is a purebred Havanese.  She is elderly but she doesn't act or look her age though.  She gets along with other dogs in the home, is friendly, affectionate, and loves to go on walks.  She wants to be with you and next to you.  She was used as a breeder dog.  The breeder gave her up when they needed her no longer.  She was adopted then they gave her up for unknown reasons.  The 3rd home surrendered her to us as they did not have time for her.  As a result of this bouncing around, she has anxiety.  Therefore, she needs a stable home environment.  She deserves a furever home where she can live out the rest of her life.
