That’s Astro, a 5-year-old hound/retriever mix.
He’s a handsome, dapper fellow with a gentlemanly demeanor. Astro would love to live in a home with another dog. He enjoys them as they make him feel comfortable and confident. He was rescued from a high-kill shelter and most likely was never around cats so a home without any kitty friends would be best for him. Kids around age 14 and over might be a good fit for Astro, but, as always, it really depends on the kids. Astro would thrive in a quieter setting in which he feels safe and, of course, loved.
To meet Astro, visit the SPCA of Westchester at 590 N. State Road in Briarcliff Manor.
