About DUKE

This cute little nugget is Duke! And Duke wants everyone to know that he is all the good doggo things: Housetrained. Sweet. Curious. Silly. Playful.Duke can be a little afraid of new things but he is really a brave boy underneath... he just needs you to show him that it`s all okay. He`s discovered that riding in the car is pretty awesome, and hiking is fun (as long as there are lots of water breaks!). Duke is also a toy connoisseur and while he prefers rope toys, a squeaky toy will do just fine! Oh, you`d like to play tug of war? Yes! And there are treats in your pocket? He`s happy to sample them! Is it snuggle time already? He is happy to oblige! If you`d like to follow Duke`s adventures, his Instagram handle is: has been living it up in foster and his absolute, without a doubt, #1 thing to do is play with his foster doggy sister! We know that it`s important for Duke to have a doggy companion who likes to play as much as he does, and we also know he`d love a yard to run around in. Duke would likely be too much doggo for younger kiddos, but some active teenagers would be great for him! Duke is a member of the Orange Dot Crew (a volunteer advocacy group at Austin Animal Center) so he will go home with their support, as well as a crate, goody bag, and a free training voucher. Please reach out to his foster dad if you would like to learn more about Duke: Click here to view my paperwork.

All we can think when we look at Angus is, `GAH!! How can a dog be this cute?!` That wrinkled face, the smooshy lips, the sneaky side-eye... it`s all too adorable!Angus is one of those dogs who thrives once he has some consistency and guidance. When he first arrived at the shelter, he was so afraid that he would hide under his bed. But after lots of positive interactions, Angus learned that the staff and volunteers were there to help him and take care of him. He definitely has his enthusiastic moments but he calms with appropriate redirection, and focus games are his jam! Angus loves toys and one of his favorite things to do is select a toy from the toy bin and then throw it around in the air. Yippee!Angus is always super excited to make friends. Hey new person, are you my fren? Yes! What about you, mister, you my fren, too? Ok! And that person over there not looking at me, can they also be my fren? Yay! Angus is also very dog social and enjoyed going to play group at the shelter. We think he would love to live with a doggy friend, or go on regular play dates!We know from his time in foster that Angus is house trained and crate trained. He walks nicely on a leash and wants to sniff allllll the things! Angus is still a youngin so he sometimes decides to chew on stuff he is not supposed to, but he trades nicely for a treat or an appropriate toy. Angus would do well in most home environments but we would not recommend young kiddos since he can sometimes get jumpy/mouthy when he is excited.I weigh approximately 57 lbs.
