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.

Bailey

Bailey is a sweet, friendly dog who just wants to be close to her person. Her foster mom referred to her as a Velcro dog; she wants to snuggle right next to you and doesn’t like to let you out her sight. She’s very social, always wants to meet other dogs and people. Bailey has started to enjoy playing with toys in her foster home. She gets along with the other dog in her foster home, but doesn’t play with him very much. She can be possessive of food and treats around other dogs. Bailey suffers from some skin allergies, but her condition has improved with baths and meds. She is housebroken and uses a doggy door. She isn’t fond of the crate, but will go in if enticed with treats.

Bailey will be the perfect dog for someone looking for a laid-back snuggler!

Jake

Jake is a super chill hound. He loves to just hang out and get belly rubs. But once he catches a scent, Jake is all BEAGLE! He is house- and dog-door trained and prefers to sleep on a dog bed. He is well-behaved when left alone and does not require crating. Jake walks well on a leash. He loves to hang out with his foster siblings, sunning and investigating the backyard.

Jake will be starting heartworm treatment in early August, so needs to stay in Austin during his treatment. Hound Rescue will cover the cost in full if an adopter is willing to follow through with his treatment at the clinic where he has already been evaluated. Jake will be a wonderful companion for someone looking for an easygoing dog, worth the effort!

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!

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!

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.

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

Rosie

Rosie is a one-year-old beagle girl who's as sweet as can be! She loves to play, and has never met a toy or a person she didn't immediately love. While she's pretty good at entertaining herself (just watch her play fetch all on her own!), she's looking for a new playmate who can keep up with her "play hard, sleep hard" lifestyle. She loves playing fetch, tug of war, wrestling and tag. She's doing great with crate training and loves to play with other dogs. Once play time is over, all she wants is a good snuggle session with one of her best friends.

Rosie is currently undergoing heartworm treatment. She will not be available for meetings or placement until sometime in December. Applications for Rosie will be considered starting in late November. Rosie is a healthy, energetic girl, so we're confident she'll be feeling better than ever once she finishes treatment.

Hansel

Hansel is an easygoing beagle mix, mostly a hanging-out kind of dog. He tends to be shy with people initially, but welcomes affection once he knows you. He gets along fine with the other dogs in his foster home.

Hansel is currently undergoing heartworm treatment. He will not be available for meetings or placement until sometime in December. Applications for Hansel will be considered starting in late November. After his treatment, Hansel will be ready for a low-key place to call his forever home!
