Cesara is a four- or five-year-old American Staffordshire terrier, boxer, and bulldog mix who found herself in a South Carolina shelter two years ago. Sadly, because she was heartworm positive, she was destined for euthanasia — but thanks to Dog Star Rescue, a Connecticut-based organization that specializes in working with such dogs, she’s still alive and well today.
Since her rescue, Cesara, who is described as a happy, friendly, and very lovable dog, has been looking for her forever home. Those who know her just can’t understand why she hasn’t been adopted in the past couple of years.
“She’s been featured on our website, Instagram and Facebook, she’s attended almost every adoption event that’s been held, and she’s had advocates in each and every volunteer that has come to personally know her – yet it’s like she’s completely invisible to the outside world,” wrote Megan Casagrande of Dog Star Rescue.
According to the rescue, Cesara loves people and goes out of her way to greet any stranger she comes across. She also enjoys outdoor activities including car rides, hikes, kayaking, and jogging. And while she isn’t shy around people, she’d definitely need to be an only pet, as she isn’t great with other animals. Still, she has a lot of love and companionship to offer if only someone would give her the chance.
“Cesara has been in our rescue by far the longest and she has become quite the legend,” Dan McCabe, president of Dog Star Rescue, told The Dodo. “There will not be a dry eye in the Dog Star volunteer base when she finds her lifelong human partner(s).”
