Astra is a beautiful black and white little girl with the most sweet eyes. If you look into her eyes you just have to love her. She’s shy and timid towards people but if you don’t put any pressure on her she’ll slowly come out of her shell. She wants to have cuddles but doesn’t know how. With the right person she’d blossom into the lovely girl that’s still hidden inside of her.
Astra will be a medium size girl and at present she weighs 7.5 kilos (Mum weighed 10kg), and she stands at 35cm (will grow a little more)
Astra looks a little like a whippet, possibly has some greyhound in her, but she will remain quite small. Astra would love to be homed with another gentle dog that wouldn’t dominate her.
Breed : Crossbreed (whippet x)
Age : 5 months
Astra and her siblings were born to a stray in Spain on a local part finished housing estate, they were fed by the residents who contacted the local rescue PAWS PATAS for help.
There were 5 puppies in total rescued, plus mother also – now she is spayed and rehomed.
Astra met a cat and was fine, so could live in a home with a cat

For Dogs coming from Spain and Portugal
This adoption fee is a contribution towards the costs of rescuing the dog- microchip, passport, vaccines, tests for S European diseases, neutering, parasite treatment and transport to the UK.
We can not home dogs from Spain or Portugal to people who work, even part time. They need someone at home all day, they are not used to being alone, so even a couple of hours broken with a dog walker will be too much for them to cope with. They are highly likely to develop separation anxiety which is distressing for them and everyone in their new home.
Adoption Fee : £ 265 – to be paid direct to the Spanish/Portuguese rescue to cover travel costs via UK bank account
