Rescue organization: Austin Pug Rescue
Hey there, friends! My name is Skipper and I’m a gentle senior male pug. At 11 years old, you may be surprised at how adventurous I am. I’ll even let you plop me in the sink for an afternoon bath – anything for my people! And the only thing I love more than my people are naps. I just had full dental surgery, but if my enormous smile doesn’t win you over, maybe my big, soulful eyes will. I hope to start the next chapter of my life with you. Will you give me a chance to love you forever? http://austinpugrescue.com/skipper/

Rescue organization: Forgotten Friends Mixed Breed Rescue
Hullo hoomans, my name is Jethro, and I’m a young, active male heeler mix pup looking for someone with whom I can share all kinds of adventures. My foster mom says that I am a handsome and affectionate love bug, and hearing that always makes my tail wag. I am a laid-back guy that gets along with people and dogs, and would love a nice fenced yard to romp around and play with my doggy and hooman friends. I am house-trained, and I like hanging out in my crate when it’s time for a snooze. If you take me to the park to play fetch or for a long, fun-filled walk every day, I will reward you with kisses and my loyalty furever. http://forgottenfriendstx.org/pet/jethro/

Rescue organization: Ay Chihuahua Rescue
If you are looking for a tiny buddy to share your adventures, pick me! My name is Casanova, and I am a very active puppy on a mission to spread love and giggles wherever I go. I had a rough start in a rural shelter where I developed flea allergies and lost a lot of my hair. But since arriving at my foster home my health improved quickly, and now I feel and look much better! My foster mom says I am bright eyed and bushy-tailed, whatever that means. I share my foster home with other dogs and a cat with whom I love to play. I am looking for a furever family with a resident pack of equally playful fur kids, and people I can shower with tiny kisses and affection. Could that be yours? http://www.aychihuahuarescue.org/available-dogs/

Rescue organization: SAFE Refuge of Central Texas
Hi everyone, Chocho here. I am a shy Chihuahua mix in need of a fresh start. You see, I once had an owner, but he didn’t treat me well. One day, he brought me to the Bastrop shelter in an HEB shopping bag and told them he no longer wanted me. I was very scared and sick with heart worms. Thankfully, a foster came to my rescue and now I am healthy and happy, but I am still a bit weary of men and children scare me, too. But I love other dogs and I am good with cats! If you give me your love and time, I will learn to trust you and will follow you to the end of the world. Will you give me a chance? https://saferefugeofcentraltexas.weebly.com/

Weight: 8 lbs.
Rescue organization: Lil’ Paws Maltese Rescue and other Petite Paws
Hello, Austin dog lovers. We are Gizmo and Honey, a bonded pair of siblings who need your help. Our original owner is too sick to take care of us so we need to find a new family soon where we can be together like we have been since birth. We are sad and confused but we have each other for comfort. We are healthy, handsomely groomed, and learning the ropes at our new foster home. We are looking for a loving adopter who understands that it may take us a while to adapt to our new surroundings. Once we do, we’ll have so much love to give and we promise to make you oh-so-happy.

Rescue organization: Austin Animal Center
Hey everyone, Chuy here. First time caller, long time listener. I loves my people and would love nothing more than to be loved by a family of my own. I was so happy to be adopted from the Austin Animal Center, only to be returned about two months ago. Shelter life stresses me and I become jumpy and bite the leash when my friends walk me, but I promise I don’t do this at home! I am good with children, enjoy long walks and love to explore and sniff. I like rope toys but only if I has a person to play with, I am people oriented and prefer to be the only dog in the home. I am house trained and will do just about anything for a tasty treat: I will sit, down, shake, roll over, and wait at doors. My friends at AAC say I am the whole package and they will answer all your questions about me. Will you please come meet me? My ID number at Austin Animal Center is A732871. firstname.lastname@example.org
