The “adoptable dog of the week” in metro Atlanta this week is Castro from LifeLine Animal Project. Castro is up-to-date on vaccinations, housetrained, microchipped and gets along well with kids and other dogs. Here is more about Castro from the LifeLine website:
“Castro is a gorgeous adult, male collie-chow mix. He is fast friends with other playful dogs and quick to nuzzle into you for love. If he fits your aesthetic come see him quick, because we're sure he is going to be snapped up soon!”
The following is a posting from the LifeLine Facebook page about Castro in response to a question about his breed: “Mostly Collie, but probably some shepherd. He is so sweet too! He recently visited an elementary school and was great with all the kids hanging all over him too!”
