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.
Quiet, low key home with calm male dog wanted for a sweet, shy soul.
Lumi is smart, well mannered, and very mellow for a puppy. She is also slow to warm up and much slower if you have a Y chromosome. Give her a chance to get to know you and she will be your best friend and constant companion. She is working through her fear of the world and channeling her inner brave to conquer some of those fears with some human encouragement.
Lumi is easily startled by loud noises but she’s starting to learn that they’re not so scary after all. Lumi needs a patient, gentle hand and voice to help her continue to channel that inner bravery and come out of her shell. She loves to be outside and explore the backyard. She is working on leash training and making progress as well as doing very well with house training!
She is great with other dogs and needs a home with a very confident, calm, male dog. She feeds off of the confidence of other dogs when experiencing someone or something new, so this will be very important for her.
Lumi settles into her routine and the people she knows fairly quickly, and once she is comfortable, she’s sweet, super well mannered and quiet. But with new people she can become loud and nervous. Lumi tolerates children who are calm and dog savvy, but she likes routine and consistency, so lots of visitors to the home would not be good for her - especially children visitors who may not be dog savvy.
