About APRICOT

Apricot shines best as a personal human companion for adults and older children. There`s a soft side to Apricot and she loves to show it. She has great home manners and prefers a home with human companionship where she won`t be left for long, long hours daily but she is indeed crate trained for those shorter stretches when her people are away. Apricot is part of the Classic Canines nonprofit advocacy program at Austin Animal Center.

As a big, black, and fearful dog, Ace has some odds stacked against him. But luckily for him, he also has a big team of people working with him to become more confident, and to show him that we are there to help him and to love him. With proper intros, Ace is making friends left and right! If you are wondering, proper intros for Ace means no direct eye contact, speaking softly, offering treats, and letting him approach you. It can take some time for that tail to become untucked and that`s okay. You can`t rush this kind of thing. You know when you have Ace`s seal of approval because he will show you his naughty side! We diligently redirect him and he is learning quickly what kind of behavior gets rewarded. And who doesn`t love rewards?! You may also get some nibbly kisses once he really feels comfortable with you. According to his surrender notes, Ace is house trained, crate trained, and has lived with another dog. He is afraid of lawn mowers but loves car rides, squeaky toys, and tug of war. His notes also say, `He barks when he sees someone. Then hides. He watches them for a little bit and then loves them.` We love you, too, Ace. So much. The Orange Dot Crew (a volunteer advocacy group at Austin Animal Center) will be there every step of the way to make sure that your new pet is set up for success with their new family.I weigh approximately 69 lbs.
