AUSTIN ADOPTIONS ONLY

BISHOP’S ADOPTION IS ON HOLD WHILE HE IS IN A MONTH LONG TRAINING PROGRAM.

Bishop is a sweet boy who is just as cute as a button! He bonded immediately with his foster mom, but still has a little stranger danger with new people and situations. Bishop loves to play with his toys, lounge on the couch, and be near his human. He was scared of going on walks at first, but he’s getting braver and has started to like them now!

He sleeps through the night in his crate and does well in the crate when his foster mom has to go out to run errands. He is working on his house training and is making lots of progress.  Bishop would likely do best in a low-traffic house without kids. He would love a secure yard to explore and chase squirrels. He will likely bond quickly with his people, but will need patient humans who are willing to go slow and do some training with him to be comfortable around new people and situations.

Bishop’s foster mom doesn’t have any other pets, and he seems perfectly happy to be the only pet. While he’s been fearful of other dogs on walks, he may do well with another well-matched dog if given a slow introduction. Cats are likely a no-go, as he really wants to chase them when he sees them on a walk.

Bishop’s adoption fee of $350.00 includes a vet exam, current vaccinations, heartworm & fecal tests, monthly heartworm prevention, flea treatment, spay/neuter and microchip.

Please be aware that we rarely have information on our dogs being good with cats as most of our foster homes don’t have them.

Adoption decisions are based on the best overall match and not done on a first-come-first-serve basis.
