Astel stumbled upon the shelter as a stray so not much is known about her history. What we do know, is that Astel is very affectionate and playful ! She loves her bum rubs and flops herself on your legs to take a snooze. Astel is very food motivated but would benefit from shedding a few pounds in order to rediscover her waistline. Astel is looking to be the only animal in your home as she does not enjoy being around other dogs. If you have room in your heart and home for this sweet girl, please submit an application online or contact the shelter for more information.
