Are you looking for a dog that will put a smile on your face every time you look at him?Austin was rescued from a horrible situation where he was hit by a vehicle at a job site and no one did anything to help him for four months. As you can see, his left front leg was broken and healed in an awkward position. Our team of veterinarians performed a surgery on his right rear leg to give it more range of motion, and are in the process of determining what is best for his front left leg. His foot and leg functions rather well, but we want to ensure that his long-term health is factored into the decision. Thankfully, Austin has learned to get around on it very well. He will not be a running buddy, but he goes for regular walks around the neighborhood and to the park everyday and does great.Despite his past, Austin is a really happy, goofy boy who absolutely loves life. He lives with multiple other dogs including a Chihuahua and loves to play with anyone who is a willing participant. He is a total little lover and the funniest dog you will ever meet! He will fit into any home that is looking to give a rescue dog a much better life than the way things started out for him! He will reward you with lots of love and all kinds of kisses!Because he is undergoing physical therapy and further evaluation, he would have to be adopted by someone in Orange County, near to our team of veterinarians and his new family would have to be willing to conduct regular at home physical therapy exercises to help him heal.
The minimum adoption donation for adults is $300 and the adoption donation for puppies is $400 - $500. This amount only partially covers the cost of veterinary care, boarding fees, and other miscellaneous expenses involved in the temporary care and adoption of our dogs and is tax deductible. The adoption donation provides that all dogs will be spayed or neutered, receive current vaccinations, and are microchipped. If not, arrangements will be made on an individual basis ( i.e., puppies who will need to be altered by 6 mos old). Special consideration may be given to those willing to adopt older dogs or dogs with physical problems.
