found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already spayed, housetrained, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Austin came to us from a Humane Society and was originally the product of a puppy mill/backyard breeder. She takes medication for bowel and bladder control which is highly effective and eats a special, no filler food. As long as she takes her medication, she has had no accidents.
Because of her puppy mill background, Austin is frightened of being crated, but since she is so well mannered in the house, a crate is not necessary anyway. She is loving and easy going, and her foster mom describes her as “the best foster I have ever had.” She is extremely submissive with the other dogs and isn’t particularly interested in playing with them. She would get along fine with calm, older dogs but would also be happy as an “only” dog.
Austin loves people and particularly loves young children. Her foster home includes a five year old and a nine month old, and when the family goes for walks, she always wants to walk right next to the stroller. Austin is happy to put up with a little innocent hair pulling to be near the baby. She is not a highly active dog, so although she loves children, she would not make a good playmate for older, more active kids.
Austin has a serious fear of storms and will pace and whine during thunder and rain. Lightening, however, causes her some real panic. It helps to turn the lights on and she gains comfort from being near her people during these scary times. For this reason, we believe it would be best for Austin to find a forever home where her family will be with her much of the time. She would make the perfect companion for a stay at home mom or for a retired person or couple (especially if they had young grandchildren visiting from time to time). She always stays close to her people while outdoors, so she doesn’t need a fenced yard.
Austin is looking for a forever family who realize that the little extra care required for her special food and medication is a small price to pay for such a loving and gentle companion. One look into her loyal, brown eyes and you know you have a friend for life.
