Astra needs a supportive family to offer time and tolerance to allow their new dog to settle. NB Our Rescue asks owners to maintain dogs on lead in public spaces and manage encounters, as dog law changes place dog's lives at greater risk.

Known background: Astra was was handed in to a local vets, the “finder” became aggressive when they asked questions such as his details and where found. He ended up running out of the vets without leaving details so probably the owner. She was also just before Christmas and believed to have had puppies so dumped when no longer of purpose. We stepped forwards to offer a Rescue place and save Astra's life. Astra is now neutered, chipped and begun vaccinations. Astra was in Chessington Kenns

Astra was a little love in the pound, so sweet although slightly hand shy and will flatten to the ground if she thinks a hand is being raised against her. She’s been out with an elderly JRT Skip below with no problems.

Astra came into our care today. She was spayed and has already begun vaccinated, been wormed and advocated. Astra is very sweet half the size I imagined her to be 7 kilograms. Astra will be a big hit with our volunteers. She travelled well in the travel crate on both long journeys.

Well this little girl is just the bees knees! Bless her, she has known some unkindness in her life and is fearful of sudden movements around her - not at all agressive - but freezes and sometimes or cowers on the ground. But out walking, she is VERY happy and walks beautifully on a totally loose lead. Like lots of young girls, she is partial to a little splash of scent - but her favourite is the foxy variety which she doesn't so much as splash on, as wallow in...mmm but she stopped as soon as she was asked! She seems totally relaxed around other dogs, and walked very harmoniously with new staffie Bridie - in fact she would loved to have played with Bridie I think. Very gentle girl and a pleasure to walk.

Astra came out today for a walk with Will & Adelle. She was very comfortable in their company walking with only one session when Will approached her face on and she froze and sweetly showed her teeth and a little air nap: Will read her very well and didn't go further and gave her a little space and they were soon mixing together.


Back at the kennel they were both off lead. Astra is under the weather as she was spayed on Monday. Astra was looking to find an emotional support which she found with Jasmine, Will's owner. You can see how relaxed Will looked, ofcourse he is a homed and loved dog. Astra is just finding her way in a new setting. Astra was generally accepting of Will but put him in his place if he was too intrusive...its true to say she was wary but we sensed she would in time settle with another dog

It was an absolute pleasure to walk the two girlies today. Astra is absolutely gorgeous, she has a lovely temperament, all she needs is some love, and time to settle in. She'll have a forever home in no time :smiley-gen132.gif:

Well I met Astra today and she certainly looked a different dog to the one I saw in the video above, and you will see in the video I took today. She must have been under the weather as she had a spring in her step today. She was a bit worried if I made a sudden movement, but was a happy girl. She was happy to meet Bridey who we walked with and a puppy that came over and said hello. I fell hook line and sinker for this girl she has a lot of love to give. Easy to walk on lead never pulling hard.

Wow......gorgeous girl. What a difference it has made to her body language since she was rescued by R and R. This beautiful dog reminds me of my female terrier when I first adopted her 15 years ago.....love and kindness makes all the difference. I have a feeling she won't wait long to find her forever home.

Astra is a pleasure to walk, she's such a happy girl, her little tail never stopped wagging. She did get a bit nervous at times so just needs lots of love! Forever home please :D

Today Astra and Jacob met up again this time on Astra's turf in Chessington and they enjoyed a lovely walk together. Andy, Alison, Scott and Jo witnessed the reunion and enjoyed both their company. Astra stole their hearts and they waved good bye to Jacob knowing he will soon be homed.

Happy families at last they have the dog of their dreams
