Muddy Waters'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 Muddy Waters' current foster:

I inherited them and my landlord will not allow them even temporarily. I live in California, and they are required to move in about 2 weeks from their home in Austin.

Hi. We are Muddy Waters and Penny Lane, and we need to find a home! Our Mom passed away, and we are fearful that a shelter will mean the end for us. We need a foster or a permanent family right away. Our Mom took excellent care of us, so we have no illnesses, and are current on all vaccinations, take monthly heartworm preventative and we’re micro-chipped. Me and my sidekick, Penny, have been together all of our lives. We are very good dogs; we like taking walks, we’re housebroken, but cats scare us, so we stay away from them! Penny can get irritated with other dogs, but she loves me! We’d like to live together forever! Financial support will be offered for their health care, when needed, through the Estate. Although, they are currently very healthy, current on all care required. CAN YOU HELP US? WE ARE WILLING TO RELOCATE AS LONG AS YOU JUST LOVE US!

As for me, I am Muddy Waters, and I’m a chocolate Labrador Retriever and Bassett mix. I weigh about 40 pounds, and I am 10 years old. I have a Lab body and short Bassett legs. People say I’m cute! My housemate is Penny Lane, and she is a Corgi mix, she weighs 25 pounds and she is 11 years old. We are happy, healthy and want to give you lots of love!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Muddy Waters, a Austin Labrador Retriever/Basset Hound dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Labrador Retriever/Basset Hound for sale in Austin, or seeking a Labrador Retriever/Basset Hound 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/Basset Hound breeders who help with Labrador Retriever/Basset Hound rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Austin paves the way for another one to be saved.
