He seems to be more comfortable with women than men, we are not sure why. He is very sweet and a very good looking boy! Please share!!

Sandy and Trixie… then the puppies! Double trouble as usual! All little loveable monsters!
Sandy and Trixie have been homeless for far too long now. They are both amazing and even though they’re related they’re like chalk and cheese. They’re both very intelligent and love learning tricks but have very different personalities. Sandy is very sweet and loves other dog A LOT and just wants to run around and play with them. Trixie is a little nosey nelly and always wants to be involved in everything you’re doing, she loves to do tricks for you for a treat but is a little hit and miss with other dogs, she likes them but plays a little too rough sometimes and if the other dog isn’t tolerant of rough play then it causes some trouble!
The puppies of course are growing fast and starting to become very different personalities too, one is much bouncier then the other and always wants your attention, she’s very sweet because she always wants a cuddle. The other is a little more independent and has already learnt how to sit on command… just about. They both love to play with other dogs and want to investigate everything, they both need lots of love and training but would be well worth it!
Black dogs are notoriously difficult to adopt out. Why? We don’t really know, but we do know that they make just as wonderful pets as any other dog. These two pups would like you to know that they are all super smart, sweet, and ready to go home with you. Lisa (top photo) is a stocky Boxer/Lab mix (she’s missing a tail!) who’s very active and loves to play. She’s incredibly smart, and would probably do well in training classes.
Elisa (bottom photo) is an easygoing Lab mix who’s only about 4 years old. Elisa did test positive for heartworms, but BARK will take care of her treatment. She’s very sweet, very friendly, and is very snuggly. While we were taking photos of her she even showed us that she knows how to shake hands!
This week we walked Myra and Sandy. Myra is a lovely 8 year old staffy, she’s very relaxed and loves cuddles, she likes other dogs and was very tolerant of Sandy bouncing around like a loon.
Unfortunately Sandy has been brought back to the shelter shortly after being re-homed, hopefully her next home will be permanent! They were both very well behaved and it was a lovely walk this week.
After walkies we took 2 boxer cross puppies into the compound to give them some play time, the little girls, who we’ve nicknamed Josie and Polly are absolute delights, plenty of energy (as usual with boxers) and lots of fun, they’re very responsive and intelligent, they love to play and they seem very confident trying new things. They’ll no doubt get new homes soon and I think they’ll make wonderful companions.
Rossellini has been waiting for a home for going on FIVE MONTHS! She is mellow/low energy, very friendly, good with kids, good with other dogs, housebroken, with great manners. A truly easy dog. We’re not exactly sure what he breed is, but the overall consensus is that she has some bully breed in her.
Unfortunately, what’s holding her back is her HW+ state (having heartworms is non-contagious and treatable with no lifelong effects on the dog. We have already begun treatment of HW for her as it is) and that she is 6 years old.
Rossellini is FREE OF CHARGE to a good adopter (which I know almost everyone on tumblr is) with:
-Crate (if needed)
-Free training (if needed–which it probably wouldn’t be)
-6 month supply of Heartguard
She is at AUSTIN ANIMAL CENTER in Austin, TX, waiting for her forever home.
On saturday we took Bertie on his last walk with us as he went to his new home this weekend where he will be living with alpacas! We hope he has a great time and we know he’ll be a much loved member of the family, he really is a lovely boy.
Sunday we walked Foxy and Freddie, mother and son. Freddie is very bouncy and has lots of energy, he’s obviously intelligent and loves other dogs, he just needs a good run off the lead to wear him out. Foxy is a lovely lady, she enjoys cuddles and also has lots of energy, she’s a little more picky about other dogs but she got on well with all the dogs we saw on the walk.
We had a good 3 day weekend together this week so we went and walked the dogs every morning. We walked Trixie and Sandy again as Sandy trusts us now and has really come out of her shell! She loves cuddles now and was loving having a walk with our dog Ben, she’s come on a lot in just a week. We walked Barney, a lovely little old boy with lots of energy, he escaped from the exercise compound so we took him for a walk as he was obviously desperate to get out, he certainly doesn’t act his age! Then we walked Keisha and Bertie. Keisha is a big fuss pot, she loves cuddles and she’s nice and bouncy, she loves playing with other dogs and she’s a tease with males! Bertie is a Rottweiler crossed with what looks like a Greyhound, he’s very laid back and walks lovely on the lead, he gets on well with other dogs but can be a little dominant with other males, he has a lovely personality, but he’s very underweight and has very dry skin. All these dogs are stars and will make amazing pets!
Trixie has been at the shelter for a while now and was brought in because her owner couldn’t cope with all their dogs, unfortunately Trixie’s mother Sandy has now been brought in also. Sandy is in the same position Trixie was in when she first came to the shelter, very nervous and she gets scared of any sudden sounds or movements, she was very wary of us touching her at the start and she didn’t seem very happy to be out on the walk. By the end she trusted us a little more and she was having fun running and having a little fuss. She gets on really well with other dogs and they seem to bring her out of her shell, she was also really good with two horses that passed us on the road. Even though mother and daughter will probably have to be split again they are both great dogs, really sweet and will make great companions.
This weekend we took out little Max again but this time with Rio who has now gone to his new home! They both loved playing rough together and there was lots of ear biting! We took them out with our dog Ben and they got on very nicely together. Then we took out Dino who as been at the shelter for about a year now and we haven’t walked him since he first came in. He came in with a lot of dog aggression and he was a bit of a nightmare to take out sometimes but now he is a different dog! That staff have done wonders with him and now he is getting on much better with other dogs and we even took him out for a long walk with out dog and they got on very well, we are so proud of him! We hope this improvment will mean he gets a home soon as he is a great dog with a really lovely nature!
This week we walked Patch, a super intelligent dog. You have to keep your eye on him or he will outwit you, he definitely keeps you on your toes. He’s great fun and loves to play with anything, he can get bored easily so will need a home where he is going to be stimulated. He’s very friendly and nothing phases him but he doesn’t really like it when you leave. He has lived with children and gets on with other dogs, he knows some obedience but it is hard to get him out of play mode once he’s started! He will make a great family dog and will be loads of fun and mischief!
