Meet Astro

A curious expression and alert eyes will attract you to Astro, who is a very good looking dog. He is an Australian cattle dog and blue heeler mix, about 2 years old, and weighs 32 pounds. His evenly marked black and white coat is short and smooth, and is accented with gray ticking on his legs, chest, and face. He looks like he has been playing with a pepper shaker, which makes him all the more handsome.

Astro was seized from a large animal breeder, so he likely has not been given much attention. Therefore he is still nervous and timid, and he needs a patient pet parent to help bring him out of his shell and build his confidence. Astro has good recall, good manners, and wants so badly to find someone to love. He has a lot of energy and will need a fenced yard or country home where he can exercise. His new parent will need to take extra time to acclimate him to new surroundings, as a loving home is something new to this young boy. Astro will do best in a calm and relaxed home. Cats and small children will be too much for Astro right now, as he is looking for a quiet environment where he can blossom into the very best boy he can be!

Adoption Information

The adoption fee is $50 to bring this animal to a new, forever home. The Lawrence Humane Society accepts cash, check, and credit card payments.

If you are interested in providing a new home for this lovable animal, please download and complete our pre-adoption application. Once approved, this document will ensure you are eligible (for six months) to adopt from our shelter.

When the application has been completed and signed, please email, call 785-843-6835, or visit the shelter during business hours. When you contact us, be sure to note the animal's name and ID number, found above the photo on this page.

Every adoption with the Lawrence Humane Society includes a pre-adoption health examination, all basic vaccinations except rabies, and a free visit to a local veterinarian.

You may also elect to have your new pet microchipped for only $15 – a small price for such a valuable service if your loved one ever became lost.
