Diesel is a sweet, sensitive boy who was surrendered to Austin Animal Center when his owners could no longer care for him due to their own medical situation. In that former home, he lived happily with a large female dog and his previous owners shared that Diesel is “very playful and listens well”. We all know that the shelter can be a loud and scary place for sensitive dogs, and Diesel was no exception. He was initially too scared in the shelter to even leave his kennel! However, with patience (and lots of treats!), Diesel has blossomed into a happy, affectionate dog who enjoys walks, cuddle time and belly rubs. Diesel can still be shy with new people but he responds enthusiastically to his trusted friends. He loves to stroll alongside a human and will often pause on his walks until another treat is offered. He has shown us moments of playfulness and will chase a ball or two in the play yard. Diesel should do well in a quiet home with time and patience for him to feel safe - and lots of treats! Reach out to us today to meet this young and affectionate boy. Click here to view my behavior notes.

Meet Annie! She is a young, energetic pup who loves being around people... her favorite thing is getting some snuggles and pets!Annie loves going on outings to the park... she has SO much fun sniffin` all the things and meeting all the people! Her shelter BFF has also taken her to eat pizza (YUM!!) as well as to an agility class (gotta burn off those pizza eatin` calories!). Annie adapts easily to each new situation and always has a smile on her face. She is 100% an adventure buddy! Annie has shown friendly and curious interest in other pups, so there is potential for her to live with a confident and playful resident dog, but a meet and greet followed by initial separation in the home will be required. Luckily she comes with lots of support from the Orange Dot Crew (a volunteer advocacy group) and free training thanks to Friends of AAC.An ideal home for Annie will be with someone who wants to take her on walks to work her little body and then provide her with enrichment items and puzzle toys to work her little mind! She would likely be too much doggo for young kids but teenagers who want to help with her training would be great! Annie would do best in a house with a yard, or a lower-traffic apartment complex. Annie is growing up in the shelter and we won’t sugarcoat it… it’s tough on her. She deserves a real home… she deserves a family. Please reach out to learn more about this sweet & sassy gal!
