This is Astro. He is now 7 years young, but we have known him since he was about 2.5 years old. For the past five years he lived with a family that included two children that he adored. Unfortunately, a family breakup lead to his return to us. Astro had been through an obedience class (and came out tops in his class!) when we first had him as a pup, and he has not forgotten the basic commands. He has very long, soft hair...which he loves to have brushed.

Astro is very healthy, weighs about 53 pounds, and has been neutered. He is up to date on rabies, Lyme and distemper vaccines. He is heartworm negative and on monthly preventative. He is well-trained and housebroken. He is not destructive in any way, but I wouldn't leave my lunch on a table and turn my back! At his foster home, Astro is left loose in the house day and night.

If you have a fenced yard, Astro loves to chase tennis balls and run with the other dogs in his foster home. He learns new games quickly and will make a wonderful family pet.
