Astro has been adopted! 09-01-2017
Astro is an absolute and total sweetheart of a boy who gets along with dogs of all sizes and is great with children. He walks famously on a leash, is potty and crate trained, extremely obedient, knows his basic commands, is super affectionate, a world class cuddler, and fancies himself a lap dog. Sadly, his prior owners turned him in to the shelter because he had diarrhea. We've had him see a couple of our fantastic vets and he is on now the mend.
He has something called "Perianal Fistulas," which is really common in GSDs. With the proper medication and diet, it can be managed very easily (we've had tons of dogs with this condition and they have all managed just fine). He will need an owner who is committed to monitoring his health and, in return, he will shower you with lots of love!
Could you be the right home for Astro and give him the love he deserves?
The minimum adoption donation for adults is $300 and the adoption donation for puppies is $400 - $500. This amount only partially covers the cost of veterinary care, boarding fees, and other miscellaneous expenses involved in the temporary care and adoption of our dogs and is tax deductible. The adoption donation provides that all dogs will be spayed or neutered, receive current vaccinations, and are microchipped. If not, arrangements will be made on an individual basis ( i.e., puppies who will need to be altered by 6 mos old). Special consideration may be given to those willing to adopt older dogs or dogs with physical problems.
