The aptly named Austin was already in Texas before the hurricane, and we offered to help our friends down south make room for the influx of dogs that will need their help when the month-long stray hold is up after Harvey. Austin was a perfect angel riding in the car with an IDR+ volunteer, who had to travel to TX for work and offered to take someone back with her. Austin is about 3 years old. She went straight to the vet, where she was spayed and vetted. Unfortunately, during her spay recovery, that long Doberman snout opened up the stitches half-way through healing, and she had to go to the ER late on a Saturday when the regular vet was closed. The ER vet wanted to make sure she didn’t do any internal damage, which she didn’t, but it was better to be safe than just stitch her back up. Her little incident ended up with a $3,000 vet bill, which we are accepting donations to cover. Since then, she is being watched like a hawk with a foster who works from home. Once she’s in the clear, she will be ready to be adopted. Throughout the whole ordeal, she was a perfect angel, and everyone at the vet wished they could take her home. She seems to be fine with other big dogs, but she has no history with kids or cats. Austin maintains excellent eye contact, which is perfect for training. We won’t know her fence requirements until she is fully healed.
