Austin Dog Rescue is made up purely of volunteers. Each dog is sheltered within a home in the Austin area. As such, there is no physical shelter to visit the dog at. If you think you may be interested in a particular dog now or in the future, please fill out an application form. People with approved application forms are prioritized over people who haven’t yet applied.




Full of personality, Tillie is a sweet girl who will be a great addition to your family. She loves to be loved and is happiest when she is with people.

She knows some basic commands, is house-trained, and is a fast learner. As a medium-energy dog, Tillie loves walks, playing with toys, and hanging out by your side as much as possible. As with most dogs, she could use some general training.

Tillie is easy going and calm but also playful. Loves a good belly rub and chilling out, and also enjoys catching balls or playing with squeaky toys. Tillie loves car rides and is great on leash. She gets along well with other dogs and currently lives with 2 canine friends.

As a shepherd mix, Tillie is really smart and will do best in a home with an experienced dog person who can set boundaries. An ideal home would include a yard to run around and someone who works from home or who is home often. She loves to chase squirrels, and we’re not sure about cats, so we’d want to cat test before pairing her with a family cat.

If you are interested in meeting Tillie, please fill out an application. You may just find your new best friend!
