Breed: Australian Red Cattle Dog
Age: 7 years old
ABOUT THE DOG:
Astro’s father was in a famous Australian beer commercial where the dog stole beer out of a cooler. Astro was only about 7 weeks old when he came to owner Alison Clark, but she hoped he would have the same star quality.
Instead she learned that she had been cast in the “seven year bark.” Astro barks incessantly at the oddest of activities. When Alison makes the bed, Astro barks, twirls, and tries to bite the sheets. When she mounts her exercise bike, Astro stands in front of it and barks until she gets off. If she gets the vacuum out of the cupboard, if she carries anything in the house, or when she gets the garden shears out, Astro follows Alison… barking and barking and barking.
ABOUT THE OWNER:
Alison Clark works as executive assistant with a property management company that maintains traffic lights in Sydney. Alison also has another Australian Cattle Dog named George.
BEHIND THE SCENES:
Alison shocked Cesar and the Dog Whisperer crew when she showed them a photo of the large python that snuck into her rural home near Brisbane.
