This is the information we received from Duke's family:

Our family is being relocated overseas in May, and we're sad to be in the position that we need to re-home our family dog, Duke. Duke is 8.5 years old, and a very good dog. He is fully house-trained, but also comfortable staying outside (he is currently an inside/outside dog). He is up-to-date on all of his shots, (vet records available for new owner to have) and he is also has a micro chip.

Duke is child-friendly, (we have a 3-year-old) and is perfectly content when he can sleep most of the day. He weighs approximately 90 pounds, and comes with his dog house, food bowls, food storage bin, collar, leash, brush and dog bed. While he is a bit lazy, he loves to take walks, and be around people. He is also cat-friendly and dog-friendly (we are currently staying with family until we leave and Duke gets along with their two dogs perfectly fine).

Duke does have one small benign tumor on one hind leg that has been tested, and shown not to have illness associated with it. He did have heart worms when he was six years old, but was treated, and then shown to be completely clear of heart worms after the treatment was complete. He has been on monthly heart worm medicine since that time.

About Austin Dog Rescue

Our Adoption Process...

To adopt from us, you'll need to fill out an application on our website at We require a vet reference. Renters must have written permission from their landlords in order to adopt from us.

If your application is approved, we'll come to your home for a visit. This is just to be sure that you live in an environment that is safe for a dog.

After your application has been approved and your home visit has been completed, you're ready to adopt. We require a $165 adoption fee and a signed contract at the time we release the dog to your care. You can change your mind within three days for a refund of your adoption fee. Should you change your mind after the three day period, we will not provide a refund.

If you ever decide to give up guardianship of a dog adopted from us, for any reason, you must return the dog to our care.
