Meet our pet of the week, Astro, a large cross-breed the size of a Great Dane – a real giant! He’s a desexed male, brindle in colour and about 18 months old. He gets along with almost every other dog, except grumpy dogs.
He loves games – just try to put his PJs on. Nope, he has to take them from you and run away to play with them, then it’s another game to get them back so you can make him warm.
Astro would best suit a family with older children, because of his exuberant personality. He could knock small children over in excitement. He loves to be part of everything, so if the family goes to sports days with the kids, take him too. Days at the beach, picnics, walks, any activity really, he wants to be there and join in.
As Pet of the Week, Astro’s adoption fee is reduced to $150. This includes microchipping, desexing, vaccination, flea and worm treatments and lifetime registration in NSW.
If you’d like to adopt him ask yourself the following questions: Can I handle a puppy best or would a mature dog actually be better? What size dog is best for me? Should the dog have endless energy or be a couch potato to watch TV with? Is my home noisy or quiet?
