All in the Family


American Staffordshire Terrier / American Pit Bull Terrier

My name is Astro, and I am a pit bull mix. This is my story. I don’t quite remember my first seven months, I guess dogs are just like humans in that way. They don't remember much, from when their a puppy. Somehow, I wound up at the East Valley Animal Shelter, in Van Nuys, CA. I was there for about seven days. It was pretty neat, I had a friend in my pen, he was cool, but I longed for a family of my own, and a place to call home. Then in walked the future loves of my life. The stopped at my pen, and the girl said, "Aww, look at the cute little black and white one". "He is adorable", said her boyfriend. I did my best puppy dog eyes, and head tilt. They cooed even more. That's when I knew that I had 'em hooked. They went to ask the caretaker if they could play with me, but I wasn't available yet. I still needed a physical exam, before I'd become adoptable. They walked back to my pen, and the girl said, "We'll be back in a few days, baby". It seemed like months had gone by. Then the day finally came. I woke with the sun, that morning. I waited, and waited, until the shelter opened at 8a. They weren't there yet. Oh no, I thought. They found another puppy. About thirty minutes later, in the walked. "I am so sorry we are late baby, Steve, got us lost, on the way here", she said. I'd later learn that this is a trend of his, but I didn't care, they came back for me! We went over to a grassy play area, and that was the first time they pet me. I knew that I had found my people, and they knew they had found their puppy. She whispered in my ear, "You want to be come home with us, baby?" I had to go to the vet to be fixed, but two days later, they came back for me, again. As the worker came to get me, from my pen, I could hardly contain my excitement. With my tail wagging, I took a couple of deep breaths, and headed out the door. There they were, just as excited as I was. I ran right over to her, jumped up, and thought, HI MAMA! When we got to their house, I mean OUR home, there was a surprise waiting for me. Their other dog, a boxer named Krypto! I didn’t know my family came with a friend, and boy, was he just as surprised as I was. Krypto and I are the best of friends now. We do everything together, play tug of war, ball, go for walks, cuddle, I even get to swim in the pool, (not Krypto, he’s a scaredy cat). My favorite place to sleep is in Mama and Papa’s room. I took over papa’s bean bag, but I let him use it sometimes. I also like to wait for him to get out of bed in the morning, so that I can go cuddle with Mom. I truly live the dog’s life.
