Name: Koda
Animal ID: A695970
Age: 4 year old
Breed: Boxer Mix
Sex: Neutered Male
Location: Kennel 20 at Town Lake Animal Center

Koda’s been waiting more than a year for a family, despite being one of the sweetest, most gentle pups we know. What’s gotten him through? Koda has a best friend in volunteer Janna. She visits him constantly and she loves him bunches. Here’s what she had to say when we asked her why she loves Koda:

“Koda can see everyone walking in and out of TLAC from his kennel. Every day when I walk in he sees me, and he is in there smiling with his big underbite, his tail wagging like crazy at me. He never has a bad day. Even after all this time he acts like he couldn’t be happier to be there waiting for me (or any of his pals). At night after his last out he goes directly to his bed to chew on his toys, or curl up on his bed. He has accepted shelter life as his routine, but he has never lost his spirit. My heart overflows with love for him, and yet breaks at the same time. He is such a good dog.

Koda

Koda is a Hard Luck Hounds so visit him at our Town Lake location or e-mail HLHaustin@gmail.com  if you’d like to meet him.

Name: Henney
Animal ID: A675879
Age: 2 Year Old
Breed: Pit Bull Mix, Spayed Female
Location: Office 220

Director’s pick! Chief Animal Services Officer Tawny Hammond has a favorite dog. She’s REALLY good at choosing special animals, so check it out:

We know one thing for sure: Henny has a sad past (kept outdoors and used for breeding, despite being barely older than a pup herself). She has never known the comfort of falling asleep on the couch next to her person, or taking a Sunday walk in the park. Despite this, she is one the kindest, most gentle dogs we’ve met in a long time.

Henney

She’s been getting some TLC from our director for the past week, living in her office. Even if there is a soft bed, Henny will choose to lay right at her feet, because she craves human affection. Henny is a perfect lady on a leash and greets everyone she meets with a gentle smile. She doesn’t bark when other dogs walk by and is just so happy to finally have people be kind to her. Somebody scoop this special girl up. She’s a once-in-a-lifetime dog.

Name: Polly Doodle
Animal ID: A604955
Age: 6 year old
Breed: Terrier mix, Spayed Female
Location: In Foster

Our sweet girl, Pollydoodle has been in our shelter system for about 2 years now,  with the exception of a 10-day adoption that did not work out, due to no fault of her own. Pollydoodle was pretty stressed in the shelter environment after so much time, so back in April she was sent to be boarded at a training academy. She is in good care there, but is crated most of the day, except for potty breaks and some play groups. This smart girl is highly trainable and knows several commands, like sit, wait, down, waste, heel, stay, leave it, drop it, spin and others. She is amazing with kids, too!

Polly Doodle has a video!

Kahlua has been with Austin Animal Center over 200 days now! It’s really time for this very good girl to have her forever home. She lived with one of our fosters for 1 week and this is how they describe her:

Very sweet with people, high energy needs exercise. She has good leash manners when she has limited distractions. She will chase cats, so be mindful of her natural prey drive. She knows sit, and will wait for her food and before exiting the door. She is housetrained and crate trained. Rides well in the car and likes to cuddle!
