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.

Meet sweet miss Mercy. This cutie did not come to ADR in the way most of our dogs do. Her mother ended up in a local shelter. Estelle was in terrible shape, the advocates at the shelter sent out a plea for rescue. She was blind, partially paralyzed and
scheduled for euthanasia on 11.24. Fast forward to 12.15 and we find out Estelle is also pregnant and due very soon. She went into labor that night and 16 hours later Mercy was born via C-section.

From the beginning Mercy was calm and sweet. She is such a good, easy puppy to be around. Mercy likes to be with other dogs and will do best in a house with a confident buddy. She like to curl up with the older dogs around her. Mercy needs to work on her cat whisperer skills, at the moment she just barks loudly at the resident cat. She is smart, likes to learn, and thrives on making her people happy. Mercy is sensitive and will need a kind home who will train with positive reinforcement to engage her intelligent mind. If the house is quiet and you can’t find the puppy it just means she has curled up in some corner for a nap. This adorable girl is well behaved and will make some family very lucky.

She will be spayed and have her first two rounds of DHPP before going home. While Mercy is doing great with potty training she will need continued patience as she learns.
