Adopt Austin


Hi, I’m Austin!   I’m an energetic and loving puppy. My favorite things include cuddling with my human, playing with squeaky toys, and being outside. I would do really well in a home where my human spends a lot of time at home and has a fenced in backyard. I love being outside but I do not like going on walks! I am mostly housebroken and crate trained; meaning I rarely have accidents and still get a little sad when you leave. I don’t cry for long though, it takes me maybe 5-10minutes to calm down and relax quietly until your return. I can sit and am a fast learner (especially when tasty treats are involved).

I would most likely do fine with children because I am extremely tolerant of being touched. Ears, tail, paw, tummy, nothing bothers me! However, I am teething so I do love to nibble. Toes, fingers, and shoes are some of my favorite targets. I can usually be redirected with a squeaky toy or a game of fetch. Lastly I am unsure of how I would be in a home with other dogs. I am weary of dogs bigger than myself but I am working on it and definitely getting better!
