Estrella is a very affectionate and friendly 2-year-old who likes to chitchat about her day and what her silly kittens have been doing. She is gentle and mellow for the most part. She becomes comfortable with people very easily, likes to be cuddled and doesn't mind being carried. She is responsive to her name and will come when being called. She would do well in most home environments given a proper introduction.
Nigel is a goofy and gregarious 10-month-old, 55-pound dog who is always looking for fun. He's athletic and playful but not over-the-top. He'd love an active home where he can get plenty of exercise but he also enjoys just hanging out with his people. He's had a bit of training before his arrival here and gets along great with other dogs.
