Story
Comet is a sweet, sweet boy. I adopted him in when he was two years old from the APA. He was so timid then! I do not know his backstory other than he was abandoned inside a home alone and found by a neighbor. When Comet first joined my house, he was scared of cars, traffic, plastic bags....basically anything. His response was either to run with no clue where he was going or to cower and hide. It didn't take him long to settle in with teenagers and cats. He loves walks, hikes, and jogging 3-4 miles with me. He also likes to visit family and play with other family dogs. Comet still has some fears that haunt him, so he will need someone who can keep all food out of his reach. He also doesn't enjoy being outside unless his humans are with him, and he is always at his happiest around his family. Unfortunately, we are busier now than we were before, and Comet needs someone who can give him love, affection, and let him know that he is safe and cared for.

Story
Fre is a. Amazing pup! He was raised by my grandmother and when she passed away, my parents took him in. He was protective of my mother during her cancer battle. When She passed, he completely became my dad's dog versus my mom's dog lol. He loves food, will have a full blast conversation with you, loves other dogs, will spend a little bit of time outside, doesn't like the rain or snow, loves to have his own seat in the house, and love's attention. He's not a clingy dog, but when he wants to be pet, you'll know. My dad passed away February 2nd and right now he is being fostered by my aunt and uncle because I just had a baby and I'm heading back to Austin this weekend. We're looking for a loving, caring, and kind family to take him. He's nine and has experienced a lot of loss and the last 7 years. As much as I want to take him, with a new baby, a move, a new job, etc. I've just got a lot going on and I can't give him what he needs. Oh, and he loves Gus's soft pretzels. Thanks Dad lol
