Dog Story: Say a big HELLO to Austin! Austin came to the attention of ABR volunteers as a stray in a shelter in Austin, Texas. From there he went to a vet’s office to be neutered, microchipped and vaccinated. He is now in the comfort of a foster home and is loving life. Austin is a senior. Foster mom estimates his age to be at least 10 years old. And like most seniors he is still active, loves to explore, loves his foster companions and is very, very sweet. He has the sweetest look about him, especially when he wakes from a nap. Austin is deaf. He compensates by looking for you or his foster companions therefore a home with another dog is a must. If you ask Austin, he would love to go with Daphnee as he has filled up her dance card. Austin is up to date on all vaccinations, neutered, chipped and is on heartworm preventative and flea and tick protection. Austin weighs 45-48 pounds and looks great at that weight. He does pretty well on a leash, not sure if he would be great off leash as his nose appears to be the leader when he is out on a walk. He rides very well in a vehicle. He is interested in cats, just not sure if he could be trusted by himself. He gets along with all of the neighborhood dogs and has stood up to another dog trying to get a bit too frisky. He has had a few accidents in the home however these were early on and we did not notice his ques. If you are interested in knowing more on Austin please fill out an adoption application As previously mentioned a home with another dog(s) would be necessary since Austin takes a lot of ques from his foster companions. Austin was resued from a shelter in Austin.
