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.

Joey

Joey is a 11 years young beagle/cocker mix looking for his forever home! Don't let his age fool you; he's still an energetic dog who can chase a ball for hours. Joey's previous owner raised him since he was a puppy, but unfortunately had to go to a nursing home when she could no longer take care of him. Joey craves attention, loves to snuggle, and is an excellent lap dog. He's used to being the king of the castle and will need a patient and loving home willing to work with him and his strong sense of ownership over toys and treats. He is house trained, walks well on a leash, gets along well with dogs and cats, and would do best in a home with no children.


If you're looking for an energetic and lovable dog, Joey might be the guy for you!

Patriot

Patriot is your basic good, friendly beagle boy. His foster mom reports that he is very affectionate. Patriot loves being outside and has a great deal of fun romping around the yard with the two dogs in his foster home, then chilling out in front of the TV on his favorite dog bed. Patriot will be happy to find his perfect home!

Please note, a high speed camera may be needed to capture Patriot's extremely happy tail wagging!

Champ

Champ is a 9-year-old sweetheart. He came to Hound Rescue exhausted after spending some time on his own, but he clearly has not always been on his own. He is house trained, knows and follows basic commands, and is just a sweet, easygoing beagle boy. Nothing seems to bother him, and he gets along well with kids, cats, and dogs. He likes his walks and driving in the car.

Champ seems to be a bit hard of hearing, not unusual for an older dog. He is heartworm positive and will be treated for this while with Hound Rescue, and then should be good as new. Champ is ready to hunker down in his forever home!

She has a tail that does not stop. She is house and dog door trained and walks quite energetically on a leash. Clara gets along great with her canine siblings. One look in those lovely brown eyes and you will be hooked!

Buddy

Buddy is a 10-year-old dachshund-miniature pinscher mix – or something like that – one of those “who knows?” dogs. Mostly he’s just a cute little guy, very friendly and easygoing. He loves walks, is very well-behaved when taken places, and rides great in the car. He gets along just fine with the 5 other dogs in his foster home. He does chase the cats, so a cat-free home is recommended. He is housebroken, not destructive, and not much of a barker. Buddy would do well in either a house or an apartment, although a secure yard is a must, since he is a bit of an escape artist. Buddy would fit well into almost any home – maybe yours!

Maddy

Maddy is a sweet beagle girl looking for a forever home where she can get as much attention as possible. She is housebroken, loves to eat, and is a quiet girl. She loves to cuddle and be petted. She gets along with other dogs and people. She walks well on a leash and is currently able to walk about 2 miles a day. Maddy has a few benign fatty masses, but don't let her physical appearance deter you from her sweet personality!

René

Sweet René is a terrific pup if you want to cuddle! Rene is a new rescue so we are still getting to know her. She was timid and shy at first but warmed up rather quickly. The shelter tells us René is 5 years and she is very curious. René is learning how to use the dog door. For the most part, she is house trained but has had a few accidents. René does have a hernia and will have surgery to correct this. It appears she was an only pet and not much of a barker.

Pluto

Pluto is out of this world! This special guy is gentle and loving with everyone - including small children. He enjoys human companionship over dog buddies but shows no sign of aggressive behavior. (he is being fostered in a home with multiple dogs) He is definitely a Velcro dog and will let you know if he can't see you. He is house trained and is working on his leash skills and manners.

Pluto does have a couple medical issues we are working to resolve, including heartworm treatment, which Hound Rescue will pay for at ATA even if he's adopted already. Don't that that scare you off this sweet guy!

Ladybird

Ladybird is wonderful little energetic girl. On paper she is 8 years old, but do not let her age fool you, she is absolutely healthy and is full of joyful energy. She is enthusiastic about walks and games. She always watches me and follows me, asking "what do we do next?" Her tail is a non-stop wag. She is very affectionate, quite a lap-dog and always smiling. She likes her crate, I keep it open and she goes in when she feels like it. She is potty trained. She loves the neighbor's two 8-year old girls who come to visit her very day. She does not care about cats at all. Ladybird will probably do best as an only dog in a home with a structured routine where she can get lots of attention, as she has been a bit bossy with the other dogs in her foster home, though with the right match she would be fine.

Scruffy

He is a cute little boy who loves attention, but is not demanding of it. He pulls fairly hard on the leash but likes to walk. He is crated trained and curious, but respectful of the house cat. He is getting along fine with the other 3 dogs. He does not act his age but rather is still reasonably active. If ignored he will often go sleep in his crate. He really deserves a forever home and should be OK with children since he came from a family with them.

Penny

Penny is a sweet and active female fox hound mix. She is three years old, about 50 pounds and has no health problems. She is crate trained, housebroken, and enjoys walking on a leash. She loves to chase balls, squirrels or birds outside or play inside with her human. She enjoys lounging in the evenings in her bed while you read or watch TV. She loves to please and knows basic commands. Penny initially gets along with other dogs on a casual basis, but is not able to live with other dogs or cats, so she will need to be an only pet.

Penny will benefit from a structured environment and experienced dog owner, and would likely thrive in a setting with one or two adults or older children. At this time Penny is living in a kennel setting, since we have no foster homes available without other dogs, so we would be open to considering a foster or foster-to-adopt placement. Penny has been waiting a long time for a nice comfy place to get some love and attention. Maybe your home?

Tilly

This is Tilly ! What a girl. She is about 2 years old, but has the attitude and some antics of a puppy. She loves everyone, adults and children ( also squirrels and rabbits ). She makes friends easily with small dogs, but is initially shy and defensive towards large dogs. She adapts slowly to them.

Tilly has probably had some harsh treatment in the past as she cowers when she first meets you - but then is quite the charmer! She has beautiful markings , heavy 'eyeliner', those long velvet ears and a smiling face to make your day ! She is sweet and adorable, and smaller than average Beagle. She is healthy and fit. She walks a mile in mornings and a mile in evening. Right now she is the perfect weight, but loves food. She minds well, loves her crate, and is learning to behave better on the leash. No digging, no barking, no chewing.....pretty close to perfect !!!

Mandi

Mandi was surrendered by her owner to a central Texas shelter after being hit by a car. Luckily, she caught the attention of an amazing group of volunteers who raised money for her treatment and cared for her during her recovery. Now she is part of the Hound Rescue family, and she is ready to find her forever home.

Mandi recovered beautifully from her surgery. You would never know she had been injured. She has all the energy and mobility of a healthy 1+ year old. Her current foster home has two mature resident Beagles who are teaching Mandi good play manners. She gets along well with them and is immediate friends with every human she meets. We don't have any information about how she interacts with small children, but there are no signs this would be a problem. Mandi is sweet, affectionate, housebroken, crate-trained, heartworm-negative, and really just perfect in every way. As you can see from her pictures, she is an absolutely adorable petite girl. Even her Beagle voice is cute. She needs practice walking on a leash, so an active household would be ideal."

Violet

Just like a flower, Violet has blossomed before our eyes. She is a 1 year old beagle mix with perhaps a touch of corgi. Violet came to us with both sides of her pelvis broken as well as a fractured femur. This wonderful young pup doesn’t let anything slow her down.

Violet is extremely energetic and loving but not very physical. She is very curious and loves to follow. Belly rubs are her most favorite thing and she is not shy about letting you know. Violet loves to chew on her textured Nylabone. She is crate trained, house broken, and knows how to use a dog door. As she is just wrapping up her recovery, we are starting on short leash walks. Violet would be a great only pet or a companion for a patient canine sibling.
