Astronaut SassPitbull-lab mix

How did you obtain your pet?

I adopted him from the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria.

How old is your pet?

He is 14 years old and turns 15 in November.

What is your pet’s favorite pastime?

Astronaut’s favorite pastime is being bundled in blankets and sleeping. If he is not comfy enough he will cry at you until he is!

What is your pet’s favorite toy?

Astronaut does not like any toys (I’ve tried everything!!), but he likes playing “steal the bone” where he’ll steal his little brother’s bone and hide with it. He hasn’t mastered the art of chewing it (he has no front teeth) but he’s an adept thief!

What is your favorite thing about your pet?

My favorite thing about Astronaut is he is very loving! He always wants cuddles and scratches.

If your pet had a superpower, what would it be?

Astronaut’s superpower is that he can sleep anywhere at any time. His enemy is the sun because that means he has to wake up.

Why does your pet love Caring Hands Animal Hospital?

Astronaut loves Caring Hands and Dr. Caprio! When I first brought him in he was very skinny. He had been abused and was not excited about living at all. He had no fur on his back and he was allergic to everything I tried to feed him. The staff at Caring Hands worked with me to figure out all of his issues with pain, allergies, and fur growth. And this process took months! Everyone was patient and optimistic. Now he’s a healthy, happy pup with glossy fur!
