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.

Gertie (UPDATED!)

Minimum Donation: $250 250 $


Gertie is a happy, friendly, and confident puppy. She loves to have fun, holding her own while playing tug of war and wrestling with her foster dog brother who is three times her size. She is curious about new things, but does not seem to be afraid of anything.

Gertie is growing tall, but is still fairly petite. She knows sit, is learning to walk on a leash, and sleeps through the night.

Gertie is an affectionate puppy who loves people and dogs alike!
