Lulu has been with AAC almost 6 months now! Her foster reported that Lulu was a calm, low energy senior gal who was a perfect houseguest.  She has lived with dogs of all sizes from 10 lbs. to 110 lbs. but started to feel stressed around so many other dogs. She was never destructive inside and knows how to use a doggie door. Lulu was adopted into her 1st home as a puppy, now this senior girl is needing a new home. If you are interested in giving Lulu a place inside your home please come to Austin Animal Center and meet her. She is lovely on her leash and walks easily. We would like her to have a forever home this time, so if you have a dog at home we will require a meet & greet with her at the shelter.

Name: Greta
Age:
4 year old
Animal ID:
A712307
Breed:
Terrier Mix
Sex:
Spayed Female 
Location: 
Kennel 324

If you want to come meet Greta, be prepared. She’ll charm you all the way to your house! Greta was recently upgraded to a lobby kennel so she could meet more people easier. Our volunteers took Greta to a volunteer recruitment event last week and here’s what they had to say about her.

g

“Greta accompanied us to a recruitment fair to get new volunteers and fosters, and she was the absolute. perfect. dog. She was patient, friendly, playful, greeted everyone warmly with kisses and belly rub requests, didn’t mind the crowds of people surrounding her or the loud cheering during hula hoop contests. She even rode perfectly in the car! At first, she didn’t want to get in on her own, but after one practice she was a car-loading machine, and she got to enjoy a burger on our way back. She exceeded all my expectations of being an ambassador-dog and I’m just so so in love. One would never guess that she was shy and skittish a year ago when she arrived as a stray. She has truly blossomed in our care, and I’m grateful to everyone who has spent time showing her what love and trust look like. As I drove home after, I missed her being in my backseat and kept looking back for her. She’s going to make someone VERY lucky.”

With these nice words about Greta, how could you not want to meet her?!

Name: Gilley
Age: 5 
years old
Animal ID: 
A710755
Breed:
Pittie Mix
Sex: 
Spayed Female
Location:
Kennel 313

Gilley is our current longest stay dog at the shelter. She’s been with us for over 380 days without a single night away. And why? Well, we’re not really sure because she’s a doll! She was so happy when she got a chance to go on an outing with volunteer Peggy. Here’s what Peggy had to say:

“Our first outing to the park was a true joy. I’ve taken other dogs I’ve loved (now adopted) there, and they sometimes got pretty distracted. Not our Gilley! She was calm when she saw other dogs, running/playing kids, geese, a new friend in a wheelchair, food trailers, fountains, whatever. You name it, she rolled with it. She was happy to be a team of two and it made for a fun day. She also withstood a bath afterward. Love this girl!”
