Poppy's Story...
THIS IS A COURTESY LISTING. ADR is not responsible for the health, temperament, behavior or placement of this dog. Listings are done at the request of the dog's owner and as an outreach and community service in hopes of finding these dogs a loving, stable forever home. Placement decisions are made solely at the discretion of the owner, and not Austin Dog Rescue. Owners are required to ask for an adoption fee from adopters.

This is the information that we received from Poppy's current foster:

Poppy is our loving, very gentle adventure dog! We found him back in February 2016, and have been taking care of him in hopes of finding him a FOREVER home. Poppy is a young Lab mix, about 2 years old. He is neutered,vaccinated and we got him micro-chipped as well. Poppy has early stages of heart worms, but is treatable.

Poppy is a great dog - very friendly and social. He loves long walks and going to the dog park. The only downside about Mr. Poppy is he suffers from separation anxiety. We are crate training him but he has managed to learn how to escape from his crate. Poppy just wants to be free and enjoy life. I think he would do best with an owner who has a spacious back yard, and has the time for him...he is definitely not an apartment dog. Poppy is ready to find his home...can you please help us? We can no longer care for him.

He plays very nicely with other dogs! We take him to the dog park at apartment complex. He is 75 lbs, so I feel more comfortable letting him play with the bigger dogs vs small dogs.

I think he would chase cats, not harm them.

We are in our 20's, and do not have children so I am not 100% how he is with kids since the only interaction he has with them has been passing by during walks.

What I do know is that he has never shown any aggression ever towards anyone. On our walks, I have allowed kids to pet him, and he seems to enjoy it. If kids pass on bikes, he pays no attention to them, and just focuses on his walk

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Poppy, a Austin Labrador Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Labrador Retriever for sale in Austin, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Austin.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Austin already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Austin breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Labrador Retriever breeders who help with Labrador Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Austin paves the way for another one to be saved.
