Astro's shy, yet sweet and noble demeanor makes him a perfect candidate for someone who is looking for a loyal, lifetime companion. Astro loves to run playfully in the yard, and would love someone who would take him to a park, a beach, or someplace to run and play -- or who could give him a yard of his own. Although he loves to play, he is not hyperactive, and after some exercise, he is happy to settle down and nap or rest with a friend. He would be best as an individual's best friend, rather than being a family dog, as he can be protective of the person he bonds with. To meet this special guy, please contact Maria at 786-205-6865.
Born Free Pet Shelter is a No Kill 501(c)(3) non-profit dog rescue organization that has been helping homeless dogs since 1980. Located on a beautiful 5-acre refuge in the Redlands of South Florida, Born Free rescues dogs in distress and offers them the chance to lead happy and healthy lives. We are currently responsible for over 160 dogs, ranging from puppies to seniors. With the help of generous donations and the tireless efforts of our volunteers, we provide the love and care that they deserve. Some of our dogs will live out their days at the shelter, but we have so many that would make wonderful companions if given the chance.

Our Adoption Process...
At the time of adoption it is essential that a fee be charged as it will be used to feed and maintain the animals that are housed at our shelter. The adoption fee includes DHPP vaccine, rabies vaccine, microchip and sterilization. We do a home check prior to approving any adoption.
