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.

If you are looking for a smart and energetic young buddy, look no further…you found Fezzik! He is a sweetheart. Although he is a very active guy, he also enjoys his share of quiet snuggle time and likes to have his eyes on the human as much as possible.

Fezzik is very smart and a quick learner with an instinct to herd anything and anyone. He needs a dedicated human(s) who will provide consistency and take time to continue teaching him about manners and continue his training.

With proper introductions, he has done well with the few dogs he has met. However, his herding can be annoying to some dogs. Fezzik is an active guy who needs regular walks, runs around the yard, playtime, and/or mental stimulation. He will benefit from regular walks to hone his leash walking skills.

Fezzik is house trained, crate trained, neutered, and up to date on shots.
