Pets of the Week: August 17, 2015

Austin Animal Center

Cookie & Blue soloCookie and Blue (IDs A697187 & A697188)

6 year old Terrier mixes, Spayed female & Neutered Male

 

They have been at Austin Animal Center far too long! It was 6 long months ago that their owner surrendered them due to moving and breed restrictions. Despite being slightly confused about life at the shelter, these two are the sweetest, most loving dogs you will ever meet. They love to go for walks together, sleep together and ride in the car together!  They are gentle with children and other dogs and always love to meet new people.  Shelter life has started taking a toll on these pups because they truly miss being around people. House-trained and well-mannered inside, they have become staff favorites and love to lay under the desks of staffers as they works.

KatieKatie (ID A706297)

8 year old Labrador Retriever mix, Spayed Female

Katie is affectionate and playful, but at eight years old, she is also mature and well behaved. Katie’s foster family reports that she is house trained, not destructive when left alone inside (with doggy door access to the yard for potty breaks), and gets along well with the other dogs in the home. Katie has shown interest in chasing neighborhood cats while out walking with her foster parents, so she would probably do best in a home without cats or other small animals. 

StewartStewart (ID A709066)

1 year old Tabby, Neutered Male

Stewart is super affectionate and easy to be around. Stewart was actually breaking into homes trying to find a home! Finally some of the neighbors decided to bring him to the shelter, in hopes that he could find a forever home that will allow him to live indoors!

Annie-1Annie (ID A697537)

3 year old Pit Bull mix, Spayed Female

Enough though Annie came to us is very bad shape back in February, we have learned that she’s a sweet, playful, goofy girl who has a great personality! Fetch, swimming, and going for walks are some of her favorite things to do! Annie knows sit and seems house-trained!! We are sure that she is going to bring  much joy to someone’s life.

Austin Pets Alive

PeachesPeaches

Bull Terrier/Australian Kelpie, female, 6 years, 7 months

Who doesn’t love a peach? Peaches is a fun, smart dog who is just the right size and temperament for a family with older children. She is quite affectionate once she becomes comfortable with new people, which usually doesn’t take too long. She loves to run and play fetch, and with her intelligence and focus we even think she would make a good candidate for agility work. Peaches needs to be your only pet in the home because she wants you all to herself.

HouseHouse

Pointer mix, male, 5 years, 9 months

House arrived at APA quite nervous and confused. But now that he has gotten more used to his surroundings, he has shown us a sweet temperament that makes him a pleasure to be around. House loves to stay close to people so that he can get some attention and affection. However, he is not a jumpy, needy dog. When he was first introduced to other dogs here at the shelter, House didn’t seem to know what to make of them. But he has started to loosen up, and now seems much more relaxed around other dogs.

RenoReno

Pit Bull Terrier, male, 2 years, 10 months

Reno wears his heart on his sleeve. And it’s a huge heart. Even though his greetings are lively, Reno is a very mellow boy who mostly prefers to hang out with his people. Reno needs a person, or family, who will commit to spending time with him and patiently train him to be the best boy he can be. Reno has a gentle temperament around kids and has done well with most of the dogs he’s met. He does need a cat-free home, though.

 

Hop a LongHop a Long

Domestic Shorthair, female, 11 years, 6 months

Hop a Long has a chronic eye issue which causes her to squint a bit and look perpetually grumpy, but once you meet her you’ll realize that she’s actually a very sweet and affectionate cat! She loves being pet and stroked and gently loved on by humans. She doesn’t mind living with other cats as long as they stay out of her business and just let her be the cool, mellow, independent kitty that she is. At this senior stage of her life, Hop a Long would rather not be living with dogs or kids who could stress her out.

AngeloBlue1[1]Angelo Blue

1 year, Male, Domestic Shorthair

Hi, there! My name is Angelo Blue but my friends just call me Blue. I am a very independent kitty. I’m a lover, not a fighter, and am also pretty laid back. I’m not that big on being carried around but will sit in your lap sometimes. I enjoy the company of other kitties very much because I love to play and be silly. I live with several dogs and like them a lot, too.

CASSIDY---CLOSE-UP---CHP-ml_0[1]Cassidy

1 year, Female, Retriever Mix

Hello! My name is Cassidy and I so want a forever home! I had a rough start, but now that I have a foster family I hope the rest of my life will be great! I do a good job pleasing and obeying my family. I love attention and I look adoringly at my foster dad with my big brown eyes! My family says that there is a lot of expression in my eyes. At first, I may seem a little shy, but if you will show me love, I’ll warm up to you.
