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.

Shandy - a refreshment on a hot summer day. This girl has it all. Shandy is dog friendly, house and crate trained and she is a super snuggler. She wants nothing more than to be beside her person.

Shandy knows "sit" and "paw" and would love to continue trick training with her adopter.

Shandy is a medium energy dog - she enjoys walks and she has great leash manners. Shandy would benefit from an adopter who will slowly introduce her to the finer things in life such as car rides and outings. She is very friendly and affectionate, she is just a little timid when introduced to new experiences. She is happily co-existing with all of the dogs in her foster home, including a 10 lb. Chihuahua and dogs her size and larger.

Shandy is the total package and she is looking forward to happily ever after.
