Astro is an adorable 4 month-old Boxer/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 and 17.2 pounds on 2-16-18 so we will be a bit bigger than his 25 pound mom–perhaps in the 35-40 pound range. We suspect papa was a Boxer mix but that’s just a guess of course. When adopting a mixed-breed pup, you must be prepared for just about anything size-wise! Astro has been working on crate-training in his foster home and can go about 4 hours during the day without an accident provided he gets outside shortly after eating or drinking. He loves to play, play, play and then power nap before playing some more! Astro would love to go to a home where there is another dog to play with. He really enjoys spending time at Petco during our adoption events–all people and dogs are just new friends he’s eager to meet! 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 72 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.
