Hi, I'm Huckster, but all my friends call me Starry. I know that name because my human dad named me "Constant Sorrow" and called me "Sorry." He was kind of a funny guy because I'm not all that sorrowful. I'm actually a pretty happy dude. You see, I used to have a home before I came to Midwest BREW. My dad and I went out hiking in the woods last year and he passed away - leaving me to fend for myself for weeks. It was winter and I was cold, but I survived! I'm a star dog champion!

Anyhoo, my foster mom and dad will tell you I'm a really good boy. I'm learning lots of basic commands like "sit" and "go outside." I'm not real great with "wait" yet, especially when it comes to food! Because I was on my own for so long with no resources I get super excited about food. Foster mom and dad are trying to slow me down with a slow feeder bowl and dog broth on my kibble. 

I'm a gentle giant and a bit larger than your average beagle. I have a lot of energy, too. (Foster mom thinks I might be a Harrier mix. My original human had me AKC registered and I need to remember to look myself up someday!). If you love to walk or run, I'm your guy! We can walk and run and have so much fun. I love, love, love running through the fenced-in yard and I'm really fast! 

I can be shy and a little skittish around loud noises. Squeaker toys scare me so I prefer bones, tug toys, and I love ripping apart fuzzy toys. I'm a bit mischievous - I might chew on things you probably don't want me to - like remotes and phones so keep those out of my range. I like to bring my toys to my doggy bed and play with them there. My tail is mighty, and I've been known to knock into things with it.

When my foster beagle sisters and I go to day camp, I'm the star of the show. All the teachers love me and say I'm a joy to have. I get along with other dogs well, too. And while I won't initiate play, sometimes I'll play with other dogs if they ask.

So if you are looking for a kind, goofy, lovable fuzzball who balances sleeping in the sunshine with running in the yard - I'm your Star Man!  I'll keep you active and entertained.


Starry (aka Huckster, Constant Sorrow)

Notes from Starry's foster parents

Starry is so sweet. He's been through a lot of adventure, change, and new places since Thanksgiving 2018 and is rolling with the changes. He has a ton of energy and is almost always hungry. We feel his voracious appetite will normalize over time as he begins to realize he will continue to get regular meals. He's curious, good in the car, and sleeps on his own. He was on his own as an outdoor dog for a long time and is learning to be an indoor dog. A manners course or two as well as housetraining will help both of you. While he does still have accidents inside, he is learning. He's very quiet - we've only heard him bark twice. And he's energetic! After a full day at camp, he's ready for more. An active family willing to work on training would be perfect for him.
