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.

TBone

TBone is a young energetic small beagle. He is looking for a family that likes a lot of walks, playing fetch, and teaching him new tricks. Tbone craves a lot of love and obviously likes to be with the family at all times. He has a strong personality and knows what he wants; if he rather not do something (ex. go outside) he may get snappy, so we recommend he does not live with small children. His foster family will be working with a trainer to help control this behavior.

He is a very social dog and enjoys other dogs and cats. He is working on his manners and tends to like to jump up on people and the counters, but he is learning quickly. He loves his crate at night and has figured out how to keep it clean. He occasionally has accidents indoors, but is working on the problem.

Tbone deserves a loving home with a lot of attention and love!

Joey

Joey is a 10 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!

Snoop

Snoop is a sweet guy that always wags his tail when you walk into the room. He has been having lots of fun playing chase and tug with his foster brother and sister. His favorite game to play is tug with his foster sister, and the winner gets the toy and gets chased through the house by the loser. He is well behaved and has not had any accidents in his foster home. He also responds well to a spray bottle if he needs to be corrected. He loves to be petted, and if he sees one of the other dogs being petted he will make sure to come over and get his turn. He sleeps soundly through the night, probably because he needs the energy for the next fun day with his siblings and people.


We haven't had him around cats or kids but think based on his personality that he would be fine. Snoop is heartworm-positive but will be treated and good as new after his recovery period. Snoop will make a great friend and companion for the right home!

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. He is scheduled for heartworm treatment in late July, then should be good as new after a 4-6 week recovery period. 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!

Charlie

Charlie is a handsome young hound mix with beautiful reddish-brown and black coloring and amber eyes. He stands a little taller than a Beagle (about 18 inches at the shoulder) and, once he's fully filled out, will be about 30 lbs. He has all the energy and curiosity you would expect of an "adolescent", combined with a friendly and affectionate personality. He is housebroken and crate-trained, and his foster family is working with him on basic obedience. He is also learning to walk on a leash, and he is on his way to becoming a great exercise partner. Charlie is in a foster home with two mature Beagles who are helping him improve his social skills. While he is friendly and playful with the other dogs, he is working on respecting their space boundaries and sharing attention from the humans. He is content to play with chew toys and towels, so the furniture and shoes around his foster home are safe!

Overall, Charlie is a strong and healthy boy. However, he is Heartworm positive and is undergoing the initial stages of treatment.

Max

Max is a 7 year old puggle. He was our first "son". He's moved around with us from NJ, to VA, to Texas. He needs a home that does not have young children. He has grown increasingly jealous of our toddler. He is energetic--loves playing in the yard or with his toys--and also loves to cuddle and sleep! Like most pugs he is very food motivated---and will never miss a meal or opportunity for a snack or treat! He is house broken.
