About *BELUGA

`Baby beluga in the deep blue seaSwim so wild and you swim so free...`We are pretty sure our Beluga has some hound dog in him because when it is walkie time, he is nose to the ground! And when he`s not sniffing all the things, he is an awkward teenager trying to find his place in this crazy world. Don`t worry, Beluga, we’ve all been there! Beluga recently spent some time in foster and came back with all As on his report card! Crate trained, house trained, adventurous, well-behaved, and super eager to learn! Beluga has a rough and rowdy play style so he could potentially live with a confident, playful dog. If you think you have room for a baby Beluga in your home, and your heart, please email orangedotcrew@gmail.com! data-link=`https://photos.app.goo.gl/kWat4QKz2dWgvU6A8` data-title=`Beluga A790410` data-description=`5 new photos added to shared album`>

This very good boy was initially shy and a bit scared when he first arrived but he`s come out of his shell so much! Alpha is now confident and goofy and he LOVES adventure! Whether it be going on a hike at McKinney Falls State Park, or going swimming, or even just hopping in the car for some sightseeing – Alfalfa is your guy!Alfafa is not only curious and adventurous, he is also a smarty pants! He knows several commands (sit, down, and shake), and we`re pretty sure he`d love to learn a few more. Oh, and he is somewhat of a diva… that’s right, Alfafa loves it when you brush his hair. He’ll thank you by wagging his bushy tail and maybe even giving you a kiss or two!As a larger, black dog, Alfafa is often overlooked here. When you walk past his kennel, he`ll bark and jump, but all he`s trying to say is `pick me!`. And he doesn`t understand why nobody ever does pick him :( Alpha just needs someone to give him a chance, which is why we`re hoping to find him a foster home, so they can see the amazing dog he is without all the stress of being at the shelter. As a member of the Orange Dot Crew, Alfafa will go home with everything you need, including a crate, harness, goodie bag, a training voucher, and all the support you need. Please email them for more info, or to set up a time to meet him: orangedotcrew@gmail.com data-link=`https://photos.app.goo.gl/bRpHCVc39unVMD858` data-title=`A790878 Alpha ` data-description=`4 new photos added to shared album`> show less

Ash is a sweet, very easy going goofy boy with medium energy and loves to play with you or his siblings. Even though he’s a little guy, he’s quick to give a very big purr and loves the attention. He mostly plays with his four siblings (A801555, A801556, A801557, A801579) wrestling and right in the middle of it even though he was the runt of the litter. He loves chewing on mice, any string toys and enjoys hand wrestling as shown in the picture. Even though he’s still the smallest of his litter, he’s tough and plays hard, jumping into any wrestling match. He sleeps and plays with all of his sibs so you could mix and match if you’d like a pair.He purrs immediately when I talk to him sleeping on the cat tree and even more so when you pet him I pick him up. I pick him up even if he’s playing, to carry around and he’s find but may want down if he’s busy. He’ll play with my feet in my Birks while I sit and my desk and will come up and give a small chirp for attention to get in my lap if I don’t see him. He’ll stay if he asks for lap time but if his siblings are playing he might want to get down to join his brothers and sister. Most of the time, he’ll jump up to the back of the couch or a closer cat tree perch for attention if you walk by and he’s up.He has light soft voice and will chirp at to you for attention and on occasion will talk to you. He’s excellent on the litter box and is pretty easy to clip his nails when he’s sleepy. Even with his siblings to chase, he really tries to get my seven year old cat’s attention to play but is gentle and doesn’t jump on her. He can be a little shy around new people but warms up pretty quickly. I don’t have any experience on what he’d be like with kids but think he’ll warm up and the same with a dog with good, slow introductions.For more information email adaywithfosters@gmail.com or visit https://www.instagram.com/adaywithfosters/ for more pictures. show less

Charlie is a very sweet, very easy going boy with low to medium energy and extremely gentle. He’ll always give a big purr when I talk to him on the cat tree and pick him up. Most of the time he plays with his four siblings (A801555, A801556, A801557, A801578) chasing through the house, wrestling or toys if everyone else is asleep. He loves hand or foot wrestling and goes apey for mice and especially string or dangly toys. He’s lightly bonded with a couple, sleeping with them more but plays and sleeps with all of them so you could mix and match if you’d like a pair.He purrs immediately as I often talk to all of them on the cat tree when they’re asleep and wake them up for pets after talking to them. I pick him up, even if he’s playing, to carry around and he’s find with it but may want down to play if he’s busy with kitten stuff and the same goes for laps. Lately he’s really opening up, coming over and chirping to be picked up and held while I’m sitting at my desk and he’ll stay when he asks for lap time. He’s becoming as social as his sister Ginger, running across the room when I get his attention for some lap time.Lately he’s starting to talk and has medium soft voice when he chirps for attention and will sometimes meow and even talk a little when asking for attention. He excellent on the litter box and is pretty easy to clip his nails when he’s sleepy. He mostly ignores my seven year old cat but will occasionally swat at her to play or chase her tail. He can be a little shy around new people but warms up and I don’t have any experience on what he’d be like with kids but think he’ll do find and same with a dog with good and slow introductions.For more information email adaywithfosters@gmail.com or visit https://www.instagram.com/adaywithfosters/ for more pictures. show less

Cheeto is an easy going boy with medium energy and extremely gentle when you play with him even if you try and wind him up. He has a big purr and will do so immediately. He’s an explorer and starting to climb though the majority of the time he plays hard with his four siblings (A801555, A801556, A801578, A801579) wrestling and playing fast as you can chase. Like all his siblings, he likes chewing on them or on mice, jumps for string toys, leather cord and loves milk jug pull tabs. He sleeps and plays with all of them so you could mix and match if you’d like a pair.He gives a big purr quickly by just petting him or sometimes I just talk to him on the cat tree and can hear him. I pick him up often, even if he’s playing, to carry around but he’ll likely want down if he’s busy. In the past few days, he’s really warmed up that a lap is a good thing and will ask for attention. When he was younger he wanted attention but would stay at arm’s length. Now he’ll come over, sometimes from across the room and ask to be picked up and sit in my lap at my desk quite comfortably once he’s worn off some energy.When he was younger, he didn’t talk much at all but lately will give a strong chirp or two to be picked up and will talk with me if he’s on the cat tree, couch or at my feet sitting at my desk. He’s excellent with the litter box and is pretty easy to clip his nails when he’s sleepy. With his siblings to chase and wrestle with, he mostly ignores my seven year old cat but will occasionally swat at her to play or chase her tail. He can be a little shy around new people but warms up very quickly. I don’t have kids or a dog he maybe a little shy around kids but should warm up as I carry him around all the time and the same on a dog with good, slow introductions.For more information email adaywithfosters@gmail.com or visit https://www.instagram.com/adaywithfosters/ for more pictures. show less

Ginger is a perky girl with medium, bouncy energy, the most social of her siblings and extremely gentle when you play with her. She’s very quick to give a purr pretty much anytime, even if you grab her playing and pick her up. It’s a big, strong purr for a little girl. She’s a social butterfly and will move to whatever part of the cat tree I’m at for extra pets and will come over for attention, walking straight up to be picked up, held or sit in my lap. Lately she’s begun to tap my ankle to be picked up in lieu of meowing and does both.She’s a bit of an explorer starting to climb and jump but the majority of the time he plays hard with his four brothers, not shying away from tackling any of them (A801555, A801557, A801578, A801579) wrestling, playing chase or chewing on any of their toys- string, mice, leather cord, etc., and jumps when you throw mice or string and trying to teach her to fetch. She sleeps and plays with them all so you could mix and match if you’d like a pair. She’s often aware and watches when I come into a room and can pick her up anytime, even if she’s playing, to carry around and she’ll just purr but may want down if she’s got things to do. She’s a little bouncy to sit still on a lap for long periods and will want to get down to play with her brothers until she’s worn some energy off. Once she’s played out, she’ll stay.She’s chirpy and talks for attention and sometimes I hear her talking in the house. She’s excellent in the litter box and is easy to clip her nails when she’s sleepy. With her siblings to chase, she mostly ignores my seven year old cat but still tries to get her to play or chase her tail. She can be a little shy around new people but warms up very quickly. I don’t have any experience on what she’d be like with kids but like new people should warm up quickly and the think she’ll be the same with a dog with introductions.For more information email adaywithfosters@gmail.com or visit https://www.instagram.com/adaywithfosters/ for more pictures. show less

Jack is a very easy going boy with low to medium energy and extremely gentle when you play with him, tickling his belly, etc., where he’s very quick to give a big purr. He often plays with my shoes and he’ll roll over on his back easily so I can rub his belly with my foot when I’m working in the kitchen. He’s a little bit of an explorer and the majority of the time he plays hard with his four siblings (A801556, A801557, A801578, A801579) wrestling, playing chase, chewing on mice, string and other toys. He’s lightly bonded with a couple, sleeping with them more but plays and sleeps with all of them so you could mix and match if you’d like a pair.He gives a big purr immediately, even if I walk up to where he’s sleeping and just talk to him on the cat tree before petting him. I can pick him up, even if he’s playing, to carry around but he isn’t completely sold to sit still on a lap yet but he’s opening up to it every day when I pick him up and put him in my lap. In the past few days, he’s come up and asked for attention when I’m at my desk to be picked up after play time. When he’s worn off some of his kitten energy, he’ll sit next to my leg on the couch or stay in my lap at my desk. So far, he doesn’t talk much, only a slight soft chirp when he wants attention and he’ll often have to ask twice because it’s soft. He’s excellent with the litter box and is pretty easy to clip his nails when he’s sleepy. With his siblings to chase and wrestle with, he mostly ignores my seven year old cat but will occasionally swat at her to play or chase her tail. He can be a little shy around new people and since I don’t have kids or a dog he maybe a little shy around kids if they’re bouncy but should warm up as I carry him around all the time and the same on a dog with good, slow introductions.For more information email adaywithfosters@gmail.com or visit https://www.instagram.com/adaywithfosters/ for more pictures. show less

If you are looking for a dog with some east coast swagger, Koopa is your guy. Originally from Boston, Koopa’s name is actually Cooper, but we all thought he was saying Koopa. So, Koopa it is! Sometimes he talks about drinking water from the bubblah, seeing the B`s play at the Gahden, and eating grindahs and half moons. We don’t always understand what Koopa is saying, but he sure is cute when he’s saying it! The first words that come to mind when thinking of this boy are adorable, sensitive, and oh-so-awkwahd. When Koopa first arrived at the shelter he was pretty shy and didn`t exactly know what to do with people or toys… even how to walk on a leash. He`s really blossomed with the help of his friends and grown into a playful, engaging, silly, and affectionate sweethaht.Koopa would do best in a home with someone willing to go a bit slowly with him and help him adjust to new experiences. He`ll also need help with mild reactivity to other dogs but he`s gone to pahks around town and had lots of fun… fuh days!With summer here, we are probably gonna get Koopa a wiffle, make sure the ice box is stocked with tonic, and maybe even go down the Cape. Koopa is ready to book it outta here so let us know if you’d like to meet this chahming kid! It`ll be wicked fun! Email us at orangedotcrew@gmail.com to learn more about Koopa.I`m available for adoption, foster, or VIP adoption - which means we`ll have two weeks to get to know each other before sealing the deal! Come to the Austin Animal Center at 7201 Levander Loop during open hours (11am-7pm EVERYDAY) to meet me! show less

Have you ever met a creature who is equal parts goofball athlete and snuggly bed hog? Do you need such a magical being in your life? Lucky for you this brillant, beautiful blanket dolphin (also known as Lark) is in need of a new foster home or an adopter! Why should you foster or adopt Lark? Let me count the ways:- SO snuggly and cuddly. She is comfortable sleeping in most positions, and will actively seek out a blanket to wiggle under - she tucks herself in!-Loves her toys and LOVES to play tug. She might sound ferocious with her growling but she is most definitely loving every second, she`d probably play tug forever if you could hold on that long.- Good with other doggos! After a solid warm up and time to get to know each other, Lark loves to play and wrestle with other dogs! She doesn`t mind sharing her toys, and is happy to cuddle up for a nap and share the dog bed with them.- Wicked smart. This dog`s IQ is off the charts. In addition to knowing many commands with plenty of brainpower to learn more, Lark definitely understands whatever you tell her. She might not WANT to listen to everything you ask, but I`m 99% positive she understands it all.- Immediately sweet and friendly with every human she sees (except vet people, they`re always up to something sneaky)- A perfect size - only 40 pounds!- She connects to you with her soul, and she appreciates everything she has- Lark is a perfect combination of active and chill. She`ll give you that extra motivation to get off the couch and walk the block once or twice a day, but doesn`t need constant exercise and stimulation, and ohhhh the cuddles are worth everything!- Heterochromia! (one blue & one brown eye)- Personality levels are off the charts. She can be a stubborn brat sometimes, but always makes up for her `moments` with heart-melting sweetnessWant to learn more? Email her current foster mom at dduhlorian@gmail.com and tell her why you should be considered to be Lark`s new temporary or permanent home! show less

Penelope. Penelope Cruz. Sweet P! These are all names that friends fondly call this sensitive and loving senior gal. Penelope is ready to leave her past behind her and is looking forward to a future filled with lots of love… and belly rubs! She is described by the people who know her best as affectionate, silly, and loyal. As an… ahem, distinguished lady, Penelope has experience in a home, and knows a thing or two about couch snuggling, potty breaks, and zoomies in a yard. Penelope would be more than glad to snuggle up and watch a movie with you, or take a leisurely stroll in the neighborhood in the cool mornings or evenings. When she feels happy and safe, Penelope makes the cutest little grunt. Oink oink!She can sometimes be particular about new people but it all comes from a past that she had no control over. As an outside dog, Penelope felt the need to protect her home and family from strangers. Her ideal home would be low traffic, and slow proper intros when there are visitors. She does have the potential to live with another calm, respectful, low-medium energy dog. We would love to introduce you to Penelope if you think she sounds like the dog for you!Email orangedotcrew@gmail.com to learn more!She`s available for adoption, foster, or VIP adoption - which means you`ll have two weeks to get to know each other before sealing the deal!

You know those folks who are always bright and happy, no matter the circumstances? This is true for Putter, who after nearly a year in and out of the shelter system is ready to have a family of her own to love! This always-happy gal has lived wonderfully in a home before, but was brought to the shelter due to changes in her owners` living situations. However, they let us know that here`s what you`ll get when you take Putter home: belly rubs, cuddles, playtime with stuffed toys, basic commands, constant tail wags, gratitude and an always-smiling face! Check out her video below for proof. She is VERY crate-trained and LOVES people. She treats everyone like an old friend. She is whip smart and will thrive with a family interested in working with her on new commands and focus games. Putter`s last foster provider shared that she is `one of the friendliest and confident dogs I have met. Thinks she is a lap dog, sniffs absolutely everything, clumsy goofball at times, & loves being held and loved. She sleeps through the night and likes to be close to her human! I would feed her, give her space, then immediately she would attempt to give me a `hug` and would roll near my side. Speaking of rolling, falling off the couch was a daily occurrence. This is the sweetest, most loving, and intuitive dog I have ever met!`CONTACT her Champion Sara at 312-493-0390 or sara@friendsofaac.org. Putter is available for adoption, foster, or VIP adoption - which means we`ll have two weeks to get to know each other. Fun fact: Putter is also a cover girl, and made her modeling debut in a shelter calendar this year! show less

*read/sing to the tune of Rio Rio by Duran DuranHis name is RioAnd he sits, high-fives, and shakes.Just like the goodest boy he shows his love for youAnd when he shines he really shows you all he can Oh Rio, Rio wishes for his forever friend!Oh Rio’s family come and let’s go hike the Rio Grande!Rio has been an absolute doll of an office dog with the Animal Protection Officers. He was always excited to have anyone walk into the office and insisted on greeting each and everyone. He never chewed on anything that wasn`t explicitly given to him, and even then he wasn`t much of a chewer. He does love a well stuffed kong or treats though! The only notable time he took something that wasn`t his was when he took a staff member`s zip-up hoodie to his bed to sleep with. He didn`t do anything but snuggle it, and that is down right heart-warming and endearing. He loves to walk and could be a great running/hiking buddy. We hope a public kennel will help him find his furever home or a lovely foster until that certain someone(s) come along. Rio is a perfect house guest. He was in an office for a while and didn`t get into anything he wasn`t supposed to. He is definitely potty-trained as well! He for certain acts young and is very athletic and would love walks, hikes, or even runs. He is pretty smart as well and could do agility training work if you wanted to go that route to burn his physical and mental energy. As for his dog sociability, he did go to play group a couple times but didn`t love it. He was attacked a few times by other large dogs and gets a bit worried when in a group of big dogs. He has the potential of doing well with one dog his size or slightly larger, but groups may always be a bit intimidating for him. He does not do well with small dogs, cats, or other small animals including chickens.For further information and inquires please come to the shelter and meet this sweet boy. His Champion is Hilary, she works here and is the owner of previously mention hoodie, so just ask if she is in and she would be more than happy to come help you get to know this chocolate dream boy!

Meet Scout! This handsome fella is looking for a special adopter who can help him be the best dog he can be. From his friends at Orange Dot Crew: `We just love this quirky dude! And it`s important to know that he is indeed quirky. While going through heartworm treatment as a young’in, his family did not touch him because they were worried it might excite him too much. We know it is important to do your best to keep your dog calm during heartworm treatment. However, not being touched, while also being confined for so long during a crucial time in his young life, made Scout wary of being touched by people he didn’t know well. Scout’s trust must now understandably be earned. But if you are patient and willing to go at his pace, he will open up and show you what a loving boy he is! While it can be disappointing to not be able to touch him as much as we’d like, that’s his preference and we respect his boundaries. It’s important to go slowly and show him that we are his friends! Scout`s favorite thing to do is lie in the kiddie pool. He is not a fan of big swimming pools because he can`t feel the bottom! But give this boy a kiddie pool, and you have one very happy (and wet!!) pup.Scout is as smart as he is handsome! He knows several commands (sit, down, shake, stay) and we have no doubt he can learn even more if you want to work with him.Please email the Orange Dot Crew at orangedotcrew@gmail.com to learn more about him! show less
