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 QUEENIE. She was rescued from an overcrowded shelter outside of Austin where she was brought in as a stray. She was named in honor of Queen Elizabeth’s love of dogs. Queenie is 7.5 months old, weighs 45 lbs., is fully vaccinated, microchipped, spayed, and available to ADOPT NOW!
She has a gorgeous dark chocolate brown coat accented with a white chest, white feet, and beautiful eyes. Per her DNA test, she is a mix of Catahoula Leopard Dog, Australian Cattle Dog, Labrador, and a few other breeds.
Queenie is doggy door house-trained and crate trained. We’ve noticed during daytime crating that she can be destructive with her blankets and toys inside the crate. It’s best to leave her with durable chew bones or a stuffed Kong toy. She has been trustworthy in the house without any issues. She knows her name, Sit and Down. She loves toys and playing with our other ADR foster puppy and our 3 big dogs. Our dogs taught her all about birds, squirrels, and deer and she doesn’t display a prey drive. She has a sweet and calm temperament and is dog, kid, and people-friendly. We think she would do best in a home with another dog, preferably a male!
Queenie isn’t quite sure about car rides and tends to drool a lot during the trip but sits still and is quiet. We are continuing to work on this by creating positive experiences in the car to help her overcome her fear.
Queenie would make a wonderful addition to a family with kids and a confident male dog. APPLY HERE TO ADOPT QUEENIE!
