  • American Bulldog-Unknown Mix Dog For Adoption in Austin, TX, USA

    Rio

    verified

    rescue
    Breed: American Bulldog-Unknown Mix
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: American Bulldog / Mixed. Rio was picked up as a stray, but it seems he once belonged to someone. He arrived at the shelter house trained and knowing sit and stay. He is still a young dog, so it seems he's had quite a lot of experiences in a short time. But he knows his ultimate destiny is to be someone's pet and lifelong companion. Rio has a ton of energy, but luckily, he is an expert-level fetcher. He's not one of those dogs who make you chase him all around, drops the ball 10 feet away from you, or makes you wrestle it out of his mouth. Oh no. Rio brings it right to you and drops it very politely. If you do not throw the ball right away, he will give a quick little bark, in case you forgot how it works. Because Rio knows. Outside of fetch, which he can play roughly forever, he likes to be next to his people. He will follow you everywhere. On the couch, into bed, even in the shower if you let him. His family got away from him once; he's not about to let it happen again. The best thing about Rio is how smart he is. He hasn't had the best opportunities to show it, but he is very focused on his people and picks things up quickly. With training, you might be surprised at what he can do. The best home for him would be with some active adults who will throw the ball around with him every day. Rio hasn't had the best start in life, but it's clear he's got tons of potential. Can you help him become the amazing dog he was meant to be?

  • Mayo - Great Pyrenees Dog For Adoption

    Date listed: 06/03/2017

    Great Pyrenees Dog For Adoption in Austin, TX, USA

    Mayo

    verified

    rescue
    Breed: Great Pyrenees
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Great Pyrenees. Mayo knows his preferences, and he really loves all women. Not to say that a man living in the household or even visiting wouldn't be loved and accepted, but this would take a little more time as his love for women is automatic! Mayo is house trained, loves cats and kids. He's a little discriminating with dogs. It's a case by case thing and if he isn't to be an only canine, meet and greet for compatibility would be advised. This boy is super duper wonderful on leash and holds a great "heel. He also knows sit and stay and is being trained for crate time. He's a pretty mellow fellow. He loves long walks and playing with toys. He loves lots of affection time and will get as close to you as possible. When in an energetic mood, he also loves a game of fetch. But like all of us, he has his connect time and then enjoys a little time for himself. He will let you know if he needs a little space. Mayo is inquisitive, silly, sweet, mellow and loving. He is even a great hugger, and if allowed will wrap his arms around your shoulder and give you face kisses or will lean on you when walking or standing. He wants to be sure you know how much you are loved. Mayo much prefers to have his human/s around and would likely do best in a low traffic home with someone who is home a good bit. He loves socializing out on the many dog friendly patios of Austin. He's protective of his home so will keep you feeling safe. Come meet this special pooch. He wants to give you a hug right now!

    Bock

    verified

    rescue
    Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Labrador Retriever. Good looks? Check! Good manners? Check! Good fetching skills? Check, check check! Bock is one happy dude! He will flirt with his 1,000-watt smile and win you over with his joie de vivre. Then when he's sure of your love, he'll turn his attention to the other love of his life: balls. Tennis balls, jolly balls (yes, those toys meant for horses), and even a bowling ball he tries to stand on! Bock loves them all! He also really enjoys playing with frisbees and chillin' in a pool. Don't worry, Bock has a soft spot for humans 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! This cute chicken (bock bock bock!) is a charmer and would love nothing more than to be your Netflix partner every day of the week. Bock loves learning; he's happy to hang up his ball for a little bit while he's learning the finer points of obedience at the Total Obedience Program. The Total Obedience Program (TOP) is modeled after the AKC's Canine Good Citizen (CGC) test. As a TOP dog, Bock has a personalized training plan and works with a volunteer trainer several times a week to help him learn the skills to become the best dog he can be! He is learning skills like sit and down, walking nicely on leash, sitting calmly when approached by strangers or other dogs, staying in a sit or down until told "free," and coming when called. Once Bock successfully completes all the skills on his training plan he will be considered TOP Dog Ready! Bock is working hard to become a wonderful pet and as a part of APA's Total Obedience Program you can work with APA staff to continue to build a training relationship with Bock after adoption and master all the TOP dog skills together. Check out a video on APA's CGC program, on which the TOP was based: https://vimeo.com/89434193 Don't miss out on the gorgeous dog! Bock is all retriever and will reward long days of fetching with companionship.

  • Mutt Dog For Adoption in Austin, TX, USA

    Murphy

    verified

    rescue
    Breed: Mutt
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    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.

    Midge

    verified

    rescue
    Breed: Mutt
    Sex: Female Female
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Shepherd / Mixed. Midge is a wonderful petite Shepherd mix who loves playing with her dog friends. She play-bows, prances, and acts silly asking to play. She's also polite - she seems to understand what a dog needs, and she leaves them alone if they're not yet ready to meet her. Midge greets her people with a joyful hello and allows them to pet her. She already knows Come and Sit. We think she might be learning "high five" too.She's good on leash, and also will eat her meals in her crate. This sweetheart is seeking a home with another fun dog, and preferably a house with a yard where she and her best friend can play. A calm household with relaxed people would be ideal. Come meet this dog-loving dog today!

  • Labrador Retriever Dog For Adoption in Austin, TX, USA

    Timmy

    verified

    rescue
    Breed: Labrador Retriever
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Senior
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Pointer. We don't know much about Timmy's past, but we know he's been through a lot. His tail is always wagging, and he looks at our volunteers with so much hope and love. But there's something holding him back from trusting 100%. He is a dog in need of real rescuing, and we're hoping there is a special person out there who can show him there's good things in store. Timmy loves to go on walks and is a great leash walker. He doesn't really like to be petted, but once he trusts you, he will sometimes lay his head in your lap and gaze at you adoringly. He doesn't do that with just anyone, so if you get The Look, you know you've earned a special place in his heart. It might take some time to really forge a bond with Timmy, but once you do, we know it will be a friendship that you will never forget. Timmy is exactly the kind of dog APA! is here for. If you have room in your life to help a lost soul who really needs it, consider Timmy.

    Lamar

    verified

    rescue
    Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Though Lamar will play and enjoys some play time, he's really all about affection and being close to those he loves. He does enjoy his walks and is great on his leash. When at playgroup, he cavorts for a little while, but then he's quite content to find his special friend or friends and settle in for some snuggle time. Apparently Lamar is a great kitchen companion. He's not opposed to trying new things, any or all, and is happy to clean up any kitchen mess made during this new recipe try out fun. And the look in his happy eyes will let you know, you've found a winner of a new recipe. Lamar would be happiest in a home with adults or older children who understand the best relationships develop a little slowly then becoming enduring and strong. He might enjoy one doggy friend in the house as well. This boy is one happy go lucky and super affectionate guy. When he gets one-on-one time with his friends at the shelter, his tail won't stop wagging and he makes it known how grateful he is for attention and affection. This guy deserves his very own all the time snuggle partner/s. Come meet him and start that process of getting to know him as soon as you can get here. He's waiting to meet you and start that tail wagging just for you.

    Chow Chow Dog For Adoption in Austin, TX, USA

    Elvis

    verified

    rescue
    Breed: Chow Chow
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Senior
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Chow Chow. Elvis will play his way into your heart. He loves squeaky toys, balls, and his favorite is tug of war! One may think that a senior dog would not be as energetic and eager to play, but Elvis has broken the mold. He is active and loves the outdoors, so Elvis enjoys taking walks with his owner and exploring. He loves to be with his people, yet Elvis can be independent. He is content playing with his toys alone and can be left by himself at home, but when his humans come home, Elvis is the perfect companion. This dog will follow you from room to room because he loves his humans and simply wants to be near them. As trust builds up, Elvis's sweet personality shines through and his loyal self is all yours! He is the perfect combination of loving, curious, smart, and playful. Elvis is the perfect dog for someone who wants a companion and enjoys having the best of both worlds: a mature dog, with the heart of a young pup.
