Austin is an ideal family dog. He gets along with everyone - children, adults, other dogs, he's friends with them all. He is young and takes everything in his stride, but unfortunately he does have a slight problem. Austin was born with hip dysplasia. Although x-rays show that there is no deterioration of the joint and therefore no benefit from an operation, he does walk with a slight defect. As he gets older he may need a correctional operation, but we don't want to write off Austin's chances of finding his forever home down to his hip. He is a great dog and if the right family is out there for him we'd love to help them find him.
Austin is very affectionate, intelligent and loves being outside. He is happy to share his space with other dogs and loves spending time with dogs of a similar size to him. He has no issues with male dogs and enjoys going for walks. Austin would like a home with a garden as he enjoys basking in the sun and it would be so lovely for him to see some grass, as he's currently chained up in the dusty yard of the pound. Austin deserves more than this, and we're determined to help him find a second chance.
