Biography

Meet Astro. He is a handsome 20 month old ~80 pound German Shepherd. If you want a dog to protect your property and be a real family member this is what he looks like. He is very loving and smart. He knows most of the popular commands (Sit, Down, Wait, Out of the Kitchen, Crate). He absolutely LOVES chasing his ball and is a great dog to cuddle with. He is allergic to grains (it gives him diareahha) so he has a strict grain free diet. He has gotten along well with other dogs after a proper introduction. Older dogs that I have exposed him to don't care for his energy and he generally respects that distance after learning his boundaries. He is really a great dog and I would love to see him thrive in the proper environment.

I rescued him 3 months ago thinking he would be a great dog to travel with but he is reactive outside of the house (stores, on walks or in the truck). I have tried training but I don't seem to have what it takes to get him to focus on me in those situations. I travel a lot and I am not able to get him to a comfortable level of reactivity for traveling. If you have the skills or the space to keep him on a property he would be a great addition to your family.

The previous caretaker said he was good with cats but I have not exposed him to that yet so I cannot verify. I cannot say if he is good with kids or not. He is big and still a puppy so be mindful of that with little ones.
