Meet Austin, Blue Ribbon News Pet of the Week

(ROCKWALL, TX – Jan. 18, 2016) Meet Austin! He somehow lost two toes and broke his rear leg on his adventures. Both injuries are weeks old and can’t be repaired. To ensure the leg will not cause him any further pain or injury, he will have it amputated soon.

Austin is a happy little guy, very well mannered and gets along with other dogs as well as cats in his foster family. He would really love a family where he didn’t have to be alone too much as he really loves to be right next to you, or even better, in your lap!

Austin is a Toy Poodle mix, about two years old and weighs 11 lbs. He has been neutered, microchipped, fully vaccinated and he is heartworm negative. Email for more information or to meet this handsome fella!
