About *MERLOT

Merlot... this girl is as smart as she is beautiful. She was surrendered along with her siblings Cabby and Riesling. No matter how nice a shelter is (and ours is pretty darn nice), it`s still a shock to the system when you have lived in a home your whole life. Merlot takes it in stride but you can tell she is out of sorts here. Her little eyes are often red from lack of sleep.Merlot has lots of shepherd attributes... she`s smart and figures out puzzle toys quickly. She loves to play fetch. She can be slightly stubborn. Merlot will also cuddle up with you once ya`ll are friends. She loves treats and takes them gently. She has an overall sweet, curious nature.Merlot can potentially live with another dog, but she would need a confident, patient doggy friend. Merlot would do best with an active adopter who can hit the trails with her, or who has a yard and is willing to throw the ball for some much-needed daily fetch time. Oh, and lots of belly rubs, please!Email her best friend/champion Sophie at sophie.sewall@gmail.com or text 281-788-6427 to learn more about this sweet girl! She is available for adoption at the Austin Animal Center

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! Alfalfa 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 :( Alfalfa 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.comFind Orange Dot Crew on Facebook and Instagram! show less

Oh, Alfie! His name is actually Alfred but we only call him that when he`s being naughty. Alfie is young and frustrated and smart... that is a recipe for naughty dog when you are living in the shelter! Alfie also isn`t the most confident doggo. But no worries, Alfie has a big circle of shelter friends and they are helping show him that people are good and the world isn`t so scary!Alfie enjoys taking his time on strolls, leaving no smell un-smelled. He also likes treats and puzzle toys. The car still makes him a little nervous so we`re taking baby steps with car rides but Alfie is getting braver and braver each time.Alfie takes direction nicely and would do well with a patient, savvy foster. He has shown friendly interest in other dogs, but he would definitely need some decompression time and then slow intros.Alfie is a bit handshy and while we don`t like to think of why that is, we do keep it in mind and make sure to go slowly and move very deliberately around him. This cute little shepherd mix is fairly out-of-sorts at the shelter and we`d love to get him into foster so he can catch up on his zzz`s and be the best doggie he can be. In addition to all the regular goodies, Alfie goes home with a couple of bottles of spray cheese - his FAVORITE thank you very much!Reach out to orangedotcrew@gmail.com to learn more! http://petharbor.com/pet.asp?uaid=ASTN.A802396 show less
