Sweetie Pie-Green Cheek Conure
Sweetie Pie is a vivid, 5 year old Green Cheek Conure (Pyhrrura molinae) that is for the second time in STAR’s adoption program. Sweetie Pie is hand tame and prefers to stay with his/her favorite person as much as possible. Sweetie Pie, however, appears to bond to preferable one (male?) person at a time, and attempts by others to relocate him/her from that person’s shoulder will be answered by bites. For that reason Sweetie Pie may be a better fit for a household with just one primary caretaker rather than an entire family of bird enthusiasts. Sweetie Pie is in good physical condition and has perfect plumage. During stressful situations, however, Sweetie Pie sometimes experiences brief episodes of epileptic seizures. Sweetie Pie does shows no interest in other birds but has a history with dogs, with a trauma caused by an overly enthusiastic dog being the reason for his first entrance to STAR and him/her teaching a memorable lesson to the dog in his second home. Thus, we would like Sweetie Pie to go to a household without dogs (or cats), but that is not a mandatory requirement. Sweetie Pie is currently on a seed & fruit diet and lacks knowledge of basic commands such as stepping up. His/her current foster parents are working on introducing pellets and basic training.
Adoption Fee: $100
