Pets of the week: Astro and

Updated: 2013-07-24T03:12:36Z


Age: About 8 years old

Breed: Labrador/border collie mix

Sex: Male

Description: Astro is housetrained and is good with most other dogs, likes people of all ages and is very young for his years. He can jump a 4-foot fence, so he’ll need a privacy fence or long walks on leash to meet his exercise needs. Astro will chase a cat, so he’s better off living in a cat-free home.
