ASTRO IS HOME! A family came along looking for an active dog that would enjoy many walks with them ... within moments of meeting they were all smitten with each other - it was wonderful to see!
Astro is a joy of a dog, he is good with the children he's met, eager to please and very friendly! He's 66lbs, so not a large Greyhound. His perky ears and curly tail are outward signs of his fun character! He may be small animal/cat safe but will most like need work to be so.
Astro definitely defies the typical calm and near inactive attitude of most Greyhounds - he is a dog for a family that LOVES to be active. There's just no other way to describe it; Astro is SPROINGY!! He can go from a standstill to all four feet off the ground straight UP high enough that he can do a quick peek over the top of the six foot high turn-out area fence! One of the few Greyhounds that would probably excel at agility, just like he excelled at racing, an active home would be a must for Astro, and obedience and/or agility training for him would be highly recommended!
This is not to say that Astro cannot settle down - as enthusiastic as he is he calms right down as soon as you lay a loving hand on him. He knows that petting means love and he will lean into your side and stay there as long as you are even just touching him - he is truly a joy!
