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.
Lala is a tiny little girl whose life didn’t start out the way it should have. She was found on the street terrified and painfully matted. It took her about two weeks to get use to the people in her foster home. Lala has bonded most closely with her foster mom, trusts her completely, and has also learned to trust her male caregiver too. If you give her time and opportunity she will become your most loyal lap dog. Once she settled in and became comfortable, her true Schnauzer personality emerged!
Lala’s ideal home would be a quiet home with a person or couple with no plans of having children or have children over the age of 15. Though she is fine with her foster’s young grandchildren (under strict supervision) it’s not a permanent situation her foster parents are comfortable putting her in. She would be happy living with or without another canine companion. She has not earned full house privileges and sleeps in a playpen. House training has been a struggle but she will use potty pads.
If you are looking for a small dog that if given the chance will become your most loyal companion, Lala is your girl.
