With some time to kill before our next spot opened, we decided to stop into another all-time favorite, Mongers. The owners, Julie and Shane, are always so welcoming and it truly is just like your neighborhood fish monger with fresh, seasonal dishes. We love the seasonal crudos, ceviches, and oysters!

          Name: Barley
          Sex: Male, Neutered
          Breed: Staffordshire mix
          Age: 2 Year Old
          Days In Foster Care: over 201 days
          Location: Kennel 201
          Animal ID: A649365

          Barley

          Energy and personality equal this happy boy! Barley has been with Austin Animal Center 201 days! He arrived at the shelter by Animal control once we received a call that a dog that was hit by a car was laying under a tree, he had a severe broken leg and hair loss. Clearly he had been neglected and left to fend on his own, a horrible way to live for a domestic canine, as they completely rely on humans to care for them. He has been well cared for here at the center and now enjoys long walks with volunteers, play time in the baby pool and lots of interaction with his roommate, a big female lab named Lulu. Barley does need basic manners training, something that was never given to him. Please consider meeting this wonderful dog and give him a chance ! Kennel 201 at Austin Animal Center.

          If Barley is not the dog for you, please consider one of our other Pet of the Week’s still looking for a forever home.
