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.
Tina Turner came to us after living on the streets, but you would never guess it now by looking at her (what a beauty!).
Tina is very timid and shy until she has time to get comfortable in new surroundings. She has been with ADR since May and has made huge progress with her foster family. She is one beautiful pup, but also a little quirky and she’s going to need a special home that’s willing to be patient and work with her. She will do best in a calm home with another gentle dog to help her continue to build her confidence, where people are not gone for long periods of time.
Once she settles in, she is silly and playful and very entertaining. She loves to take walks and gets excited when she sees her harness. She does very well in the car. She is intimidated by new people and places, and very nervous in crowds. She is house trained and crate trained but she would rather be on the couch or dog bed next to her canine best friend (she may never be a cuddly lap dog with people). She needs a secure yard to run her zoomies in.
Tina is an overcomer. Her foster mom says she is "Simply The Best”.
