Below are the dogs currently available in the Austin, TX area. Applications are processed on a first-come, first-serve basis and a home visit is required. The adoption fee for most of these dogs is $200, puppies are $250, seniors $150; if a dog is not spayed or neutered we require a $75 deposit, which is refundable once surgery is performed.

Please consider adopting one of our sweet seniors! Read the top ten reasons to adopt an older dog here.

The page is updated regularly, please scroll to the bottom of the page to see all of our available dogs.

Also, [Application Pending] means the dog does have an application, but backups are welcome and [Adoption Pending] means the dog is in an adoptive home on the trial period, but has not yet been adopted so we will still accept applications until the adoption is finalized.

For more information please contact info@houndrescue.com or learn how to apply if interested in adopting.

Manny

Hi! I'm Manny. I've had a tough go at life but luckily Hound Rescue found me and gave me the medical care I desperately needed. I am now fully recovered and feeling great. Although I have adjusted well to living with other dogs in my foster home, I am ready for a permanent home of my own.

I love to go on walks and sit on the couch so my foster mom can pet me. I just started being interested in squeaky toys but not too sure what to do with them yet. I like other dogs but am still a little shy around new dogs I meet. I don't like when the humans leave without me and I bark for a bit when we are separated . I don't destroy anything and I know to go potty outside. Please consider adopting me if you're looking for a laid back guy who is just looking for love and willing to love you back.

Julie & Faith

Sometimes we come across a dog that pulls on our heartstrings. In this case it was a bonded pair of girls, Julie and Faith. These ladies were owner surrendered by an owner that could no longer care for them. Faith and Julie are a team; where one goes the other follows! These sweet girls love to just hang out and chill. Food, water, soft beds and some cuddles are all these gals need. However, couch privileges are appreciated. These seniors are heartworm positive and too aged for typical treatment. We are hoping to find just the right place for the lovely ladies to spend their remaining years. Oh, no cats please.

Foster or Adopter Needed

Sam

Hound Rescue is urgently looking for an adult-only home with dog experience and no other pets to foster or adopt Sam.

Sam is a gorgeous young dog, very striking - he was a big hit at Dogtoberfest. We believe his breed to be Colombian fino hound, possibly a mix. Sam looks like a beagle-basset mix, only 3 times as large as a typical beagle! He is very friendly and good-natured and absolutely loves his people. However, Sam strongly needs training, structure and routine and cannot live in a home with other dogs.

Sam is very strong and still has a lot of young dog energy, so needs lots of outlets for that energy, especially considering his size. He still needs training and will do best with an experienced dog owner who can handle a strong and energetic dog. Hound Rescue will cover the cost of training for a committed owner willing to work with him.

Sam will reward the right owner with all his exuberance and love!

Stacey

Stacey is a Treeing walker / foxhound mix with beautiful brown eyes that will melt your heart. Stacey is very energetic and smart, she likes to learn if you are smart enough to teach her! She loves to work for food that is of high value. She loves to play and run – if you need a running partner, Stacey is your girl! She communicates very well if you can learn her “language.” Stacey likes to stay occupied with chew toys and these are a regular part of her routine, otherwise she can get bored easily. She tends to snore when she is asleep.

Stacey knows how to sit, stay, touch, play dead and give both paws. She loves the outdoors and thrives in a structured environment. She is probably the first dog ever we’ve placed who has passed her Canine Good Citizen test, but as always she will need to keep up with her training. To keep Stacey’s behavior well-mannered, she needs to earn or work for whatever she wants. Stacey will do better with older children.

Stacey is available through PAWS. For more information or to apply for adoption, please contact Cris Burton: seaelbee@yahoo.com

Dempsey

Dempsey is a three year old purebred male beagle. He is neutered, microchipped, current on all shots, heartworm negative, house trained and crate trained. He is a small beagle that weighs 28 pounds. He is very sweet and devoted to his family, but can be shy with new people. He loves to go for walks, run around in his backyard, cuddle, play with toys and fetch. Like most beagles he loves to howl at other dogs and people that he comes in contact with. He is very good with other dogs.

He does have a little separation anxiety so another dog in the house would be ideal. He is happy to sleep with you, but prefers to sleep on his own bed by your bed. He is fearful with children and would be happiest in a home with adults only. He would be a great running or hiking partner and would do great with an active person or family.

Sasha

Sasha is an independent girl who warms up slowly to new people. She is selective about other dogs and likes to be the alpha. She has prolapsed ear canals which are easily treated with medicine drops in the ear once a day, but will need treatment for the rest of her life.

Sasha is treat-motivated, which will be helpful for training and bonding with her person. She is housebroken and crate trained. She is still learning her manners so will jump on people, so caution is needed around small children. Sasha is an active girl and would be an excellent running buddy!
