Astro is a very cute 10 week old Rat Terrier mix pup who came to Canine Lifeline along with his mom Sydney (tri-colored dog in two pics) and littermates Orbit and Spice. This little family was found abandoned in a rural area and made their way to the local shelter. From there, they went into a foster home before making the trip to Canine Lifeline to find themselves great new homes. When the pups arrived here in early December, they were still very thin and scrawny weighing only about 2-3 pounds but with lots of TLC and good food, they have really blossomed in their foster home. Astro weighed 8.2 pounds on 12-27-17 when he was neutered so we expect he will likely be a bit bigger than his 25 pound mom. We suspect papa must have been a bit of a bigger dog but we have no idea what his breed mix on that side of the family is. When adopting a mixed-breed pup, you must be prepared for just about anything! Given the cold weather, Astro has been working on his housetraining skills using pee pads in his foster home and is making progress with that. He loves to play, play, play and then power nap before playing some more! His adoption fee is $350. He’s neutered, on monthly heartworm preventative, up to date on vaccinations including bivalent canine influenza, wormed, on flea preventative, and microchipped. All Canine Lifeline adoptions come with a two-week adjustment period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized. Please email if you’re interested in Astro. An approved application is required before we schedule meets with any of our dogs. We have no foster homes with young children so aren’t comfortable placing any of them in a home with children less than 7 years of age. We try to respond to inquiries within 48 hours so if you haven’t heard from us within that time frame, please check your junkmail or spam folder to make sure our reply hasn’t landed in there.
