Hi, I’m Austin! I’m a 1 year old Beagle/Pit mix originally rescued from Texas. I’m actually a bit smaller than my photos make me look - I’m about 40 lbs, and a short little guy. I love humans and kids, and am still working on how to behave around other dogs. I do well with calmer dogs and slow intros, but I would be even better as the only dog in the household. I am house trained and crate trained.
I underwent formal training which helped me immensely with my leash skills, as well as place, sit, down, come and stay. I am still working on heel.
I am fairly active, and love long walks & runs, especially if there is lots to smell - because of the Beagle in me, I am an excellent sniffer! I would love a big fenced yard to run around in. And because of the Pitty in me, I’m also a top notch snuggler and couch potato. I want to be as close to my humans as possible, ideally if there is a comfy couch or bed involved.
With a structured routine and a loving household, I am flourishing and learning how to be a dog. My personality is coming out bit by bit, which seems to include lots of kisses. I would make an excellent companion dog for an individual or a family - come meet me today!
Austin's adoption fee is $400 plus tax. The fee covers his neuter, microchip and age appropriate vaccines at the time of adoption.
