Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. If you've seen the movie Zoolander, then telling you Ebert is APA's resident male model means you know that he's really, really, ridiculously good looking. In fact, we have it on good authority that Ebert actually taught Derek Zoolander his signature Blue Steel. Are you confident enough to walk the neighborhood next to a male model? If so, then you might be just the one for Ebert! Ebert's egg-like head and beady eyes are wildly charming. One look from him, with his ear-to-ear grin, and you know you're in for some fun. This boy loves to chase tennis balls and chew on toys. His enthusiastic play-time prance will crack you up. He also loves to splash around in the water and give kisses as a thank you for taking him on a walk or to splash around. Ebert is also a smart pup who learns quickly. He knows the ‘Sit' command, waits politely at doors until you say he can go, and walks well on leash. He loves treats and would love the chance to show you that there's more to him than being really, really, ridiculously good looking! Ebert is a fun-loving dude who just needs to get out of the busy shelter to really shine. Can you give him the peaceful and happy home he so needs? In return, he'll bring a smile to your face many times a day. Come meet him!

If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Senior
      Location: Austin, TX
      Posted Breed: German Shepherd Dog / Mixed. Some have said Ranger Rick resembles a giant chihuahua - this does not faze Ranger Rick one bit! He is an absolutely adorable smart-as-a-whip mature guy who knows who he is. Although he does not deny that he may have a very distant cousin who at one time dated a chihuahua! Ranger Rick has been hard at work on mastering his obedience skills and is a TOP (Total Obedience Program) Dog in training! Just ask for a 'sit' or a 'down' and he will gladly show you! Ranger Rick walks very well on leash and is polishing up his 'place' and 'come' commands. He is super smart and enjoys his training sessions as they keep his mind active. Ranger Rick is a volunteer favorite and often hears the ooh and aahs of people who meet him. With his adorable looks and sweet personality, Ranger Rick will put a smile on your face. Ranger Rick can be a very goofy boy. He loves playing fetch with a tennis ball and will enjoy running around the yard with you. He likes going on walks to explore and is continually training to keep up his leash manners. Ranger Rick also has a very sensitive side and genuinely appreciates affection from his humans. Why not take a chance and come on down to meet the irresistible pup who is looking for his family and forever home!

      Beau

      verified

      rescue
      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Austin, TX
      Posted Breed: Hound / Mixed. Beau is a classically handsome hound dog. He loves to do rugged, handsome things like play fetch and pose for photographs. You might assume he is a Clint Eastwood-type, but he is really a goofball. Just watch him try to play fetch by himself, and you will realize there's not a whole lot of self-consciousness going on. Beau is house trained, crate trained, walks well on a leash and knows sit. He can be a bit awkward when meeting new people and animals, but he is super affectionate with the people he gets to know, and he has lived with other dogs before. Since he does have some hound in him, he tends to emote very dramatically. "I have to use the potty" comes out like an epic, mournful howl to the moon. Beau has been bounced around a bit, but is very ready to settle into a forever home. He's a funny guy with a big personality, and even bigger potential. Come meet him!

      Breed: American Bulldog-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Austin, TX
      Posted Breed: American Bulldog / Mixed. Long trail hikes? Check. Cuddle forever friend? Check Polite and well mannered? Check. Santana has learned so much in her stay at APA! She's accomplished leash walker and takes her volunteer buddy around Lady Bird Lake just about every morning. She knows all the skills to make her successful in a home: sit, down, coming when called and stay to name a few. Her perfect day is a long, leisurely hike followed by a snooze in your lap. She is a perfect lady in the house, and quite a beauty. She is sure to improve your decor just by lying on the couch. Her home skills are being impeccably house trained, a napper and she won't snatch anything off the counter. And remember, when you adopt a dog from APA, you are saving not one, but two lives - the life of the dog you're bringing into your home, and the next dog APA can save in the adopted dog's place.

      Breed: Pointer
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Austin, TX
      Posted Breed: Pointer / Catahoula Leopard Dog. Galaxy is APA's version of Princess Leia with eyes that sparkle brighter than stars in the sky when she sees the people she loves. This affectionate, sometimes goofy girl can be shy when first meeting new humans, but once she gets comfortably acquainted, she lights up and her personality shines. She loves, loves and loves her human friends and wants to cuddle with them, sneaking in kisses and curling up in their laps. Galaxy has great leash skills and is crate and house trained. Quick to learn, she's in APA's TOP (Total Obedience Training) Dog program and answers to the sit, down, stay, come, shake and place commands. When she's not demonstrating her obedience, she is happy to take walks and play with toys, then lay next to her people and ask for petting. And if it's been a while since you gave her a treat, she'll put her paw on your arm as a polite reminder. Come meet this girl with the cutest, most contagious smile and see if she can be part of your galaxy!

      Bock

      rescue
      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Austin, TX
      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Labrador Retriever. Good looks? Check! Good manners? Check! Good fetching skills? Check, check check! Sleek bullet Bock has the focus and determination to fetch for hours. He loves to carry his ball around in his mouth, and sometimes if you're not fast enough with the next one, he'll ARWOOF around the ball! He's almost got the drop command mastered, so the fun never has to end. Don't worry, Bock has a softer side too. As soon as you call him over, he's all wiggles and back scratches. He loves to snuggle after a full day of fetch, so get comfortable! Bock loves learning too. He's happy to hang up his ball for a little bit while he's learning the finer points of obedience. He already knows sit and down and drop (most of the time). And his leash walking skills are on point! He does a little pulling here and there but because he loves treats so much, he's happy to trot alongside his person while being rewarded with treats for his awesome eye contact. Occasionally a squirrel or other little critter will run by, but a few quick moves and he's back to his attentive self. Don't miss out on the gorgeous dog! Bock is all retriever and will reward long days of fetching with companionship. See another video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tloigPMRXEg

      Murphy

      verified

      rescue
      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Austin, TX
      Posted Breed: Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler / Mixed. Murphy is a true go-getter. He's very smart and very athletic. He's not just interviewing to be your dog; he's interviewing for a job. Whether patrolling your yard for varmints, keeping you safe out on the trails or learning to run obstacle courses, Murphy is happiest when he's got something to do. Murphy is house trained, knows sit, and walks well on a leash. He is very protective of his home and the people he loves, so he can be a bit aloof when meeting strangers. He wants to decide for himself if you are friend or foe. But once he decides you are a friend, he's ride or die. He's as loyal as they come. If you're interested in getting into some sporting dog competitions, or if you're a regular exerciser looking for a partner, or maybe have a large piece of property in need of protecting, Murphy would love to meet you. He's got a five-year plan, a can-do attitude, and he can start immediately.

      Location: Austin, TX
      Posted Breed: Border Collie / Mixed. Meet Major, a vivacious, spirited ball of fluff. This silly guy does a cute play bow followed quickly by a zoom around the yard when he wants to play with his human. He can be very cat-like when he wants attention, preferring to rub his head all over your legs. Major is dreaming of finding his forever home, complete with a spacious and secure backyard for him to run around. While he'd love to find a human that loves to be just as active as him, he is also skilled in the art of "self-fetch" by tossing his toys up into the air and catching them with gusto. This smart and treat-motivated pup is the perfect companion for agility training, puzzle toys and games. Major will delight his new family with all kinds of tricks and commands, which you'll get to know in pre-adoption training provided by APA. Major is an excellent leash walker and gives great eye contact; he is always ready to listen and learn. Open your heart and home to this smarty-pants and get ready to fall in love with Major's adorable ears, and his charming quirkiness and zest for life!

      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Austin, TX
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Do you like to hit the snooze button a few times in the morning? Oscar does too! This cutie is happy to cuddle in bed until the late morning. He will also politely lounge around the house once he does get up, maybe chewing on a nice bone or stuffed toy. Don't let his lazy, homebody attitude fool you though. He is more than happy to join his human for a nice long walk or jog. He also loves swimming and wading in any body of water he can find. At the shelter, Oscar spends his time playing fetch and and going for walks with his favorite volunteers. He has also had lots of behavior training and likes to show off his great leash manners. He spent some time in a foster home where he has proven his love for sleep and snuggling, and impressed his friends by being crate trained and house trained! Oscar bonds closely with his humans and needs a low-key home with a patient and loving individual or couple. He may be able to live with another well-matched pup, and he seems to prefer the company of lady dogs. His biggest dream is a yard with his very own kiddie pool! Oscar is affectionate, silly, smart and eager to please. He also happens to be extremely adorable. He cannot wait to be living it up with a family of his own, one that will be dedicated to help him keep perfecting his skills!

      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Austin, TX
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed. There's something about black dogs. Though they are beautiful, they tend to get overlooked in the shelter. But if you could take a moment and visit Loki, you'll see that he is a total love-bug. He has that look that says, "Want to have some fun together?" Once you get him leashed up and out the door, he is full of life! He can lope around the ball fields with a big, goofy grin! No matter what he's doing, he seems very proud of himself as he struts his stuff. His true joyful nature comes out when he's outside having fun. His other favorite hobby is loving up on his humans. He is a very affectionate cuddlebug. He loves being around his favorite people, giving them kisses, cuddling on their laps and spooning in bed with them. He brings toys to his human friends for playtime, plays tug-o-war, chases tennis balls, and then does zoomies in the yard. He's a smart, treat motivated boy who already answers to a host of hand signal commands - including "sit," "lay down" and "shake." And he's crate-trained and seems house trained and is great in the car. If you've got treats, he's willing to learn new tricks. Loki is a loving, loyal boy will be eager to please an active family and who can give him the affection he wants and will return in abundance. If that's not incentive enough, his adoption fee is paid. Won't you come visit him today? Please check out his Instagram @adoptloki.apa to learn more about Loki!

      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Senior
      Location: Austin, TX
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Alex's smile and joyful spirit lights up every room he walks into, though it's hard to call it a "walk" because it's more of a wiggly prance. His sparkling eyes and tongue hanging out only add to his charm. His joy is contagious, so you just have to smile when you see him coming! You would expect a senior to be a little slower to move, but Alex loves chasing the tennis ball and is surprisingly athletic at his age! He'll leap into the air to catch it and run (wiggle) back to you. He's a curious boy who loves to explore. Alex came to APA as a stray, so little is known about his life before us. What we do know is that he has cancer and has been deemed a hospice case -that just means the APA clinic believes in his case, his quality of life would be better without treatment. Don't judge him by his diagnosis, though, because he's active, playful, and full of life! He brings SO much joy to the APA staff and volunteers who have spent time with him, and he's sure to add joy to your home! Come meet our happy, prancing senior who will wiggle his way right into your heart!
