This week we want to give you a closer look at Auggie, courtesy of our friends at ReadingGlasses.com! Clearly, this long-term resident hasn’t found their forever home yet because the right person just hasn’t laid eyes on them yet!
Keep reading for more details about this silly pup!
Auggie came to SPCA of Texas as part of a cruelty case in February 2019 along with his mom and siblings. He was adopted as a young pup, but due to unfortunate circumstances, he found himself back at the shelter looking for a new home.
This handsome fella is a bit wary of strangers and takes a minute to warm up to new people, but with a little patience and some treats he’s easily won over. Auggie is a super fun pup with lots of energy – he loves showing off his zoomies in the play yards. He is still a young pup, and when he gets a little too excited he tends to jump up on his human friends. His friends on the behavior team are working with Auggie on this and hope that his forever family will continue working to help him keep all four paws on the ground.
Auggie’s dream home would be a quiet, calm environment with just grown-ups and a fenced-in backyard. He’ll need a little time to get acclimated, but structure and routine are great for helping him get settled. Auggie’s ideal family will be active, loving, and willing to continue working with him on his confidence, as well obedience training.
Auggie absolutely adores other dogs, and would be thrilled to have a dog sibling. He’s great at taking cues from confident, friendly dogs about appropriate interactions with humans, and he can get some of that wild puppy energy out when playing with them! If his new family doesn’t have a dog, that’s ok – as long as they have a friend with a pup that he can have play dates with!
Our staff’s favorite thing about Auggie is his love for sticks. He likes to go to the play yard with the big tree in the afternoons so he can hunt for sticks to chew on. The bigger the stick, the more fun Auggie has!
Auggie is available through a trial adoption – meaning the SPCA of Texas will give you all the support you need for a few weeks while you and Auggie decide whether or not to make things official! To adopt Auggie, please fill out an application at www.spca.org/dogadopt.
