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 King's current family:

King is from Austin Animal Center, and we have been fostering him for about a month now.

He is a young Pit Bull that is very friendly, great with kids and with other dogs. I took him to a dog park in the neighborhood, and he would run around and play with other dogs. The only problems came when he tried to play with smaller dogs, and the smaller dogs would get scared. I don't know about cats since we don't have any around the house. He is great with children. We had a baby in the house, and he would give her kisses all the time.

About Austin Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Austin Dog Rescue is an all volunteer, non-profit organization dedicated to rescuing and re-homing shelter dogs in Austin, Texas and the surrounding areas.

Since 2006 we have found almost 600 dogs forever homes! We can always use donations and volunteers, so check out our website at if you want to help!

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.
