George is a gorgeous 3-month-old Old English Sheepdog who will grow up to be a big guy (probably in excess of 70 lbs). He is stubborn and very smart. He learned sit, down, leave it, and go to bed in a matter of two days.

George requires plenty of activity pretty much all day long, which is why a playful larger dog sibling who gives appropriate corrections would be great for him – as would a good-sized yard to run and play. A very active and puppy-experienced family with plenty of spare time to train is important for him.

He is very puppy-nippy and talks back. It appears that he was previously left to his own devices and learned to become pushy. We are working on teaching him to settle down and be polite, but he will require consistency in his future home and his new family will need to continue his training.

George is as good as housebroken and is doing great on his crate training, sleeping through the night.

George’s adoption fee of $650.00 covers a vet exam, age appropriate shots, current heartworm preventative, neuter surgery, and microchip.

We require an Austin-area home with a safely fenced private yard and a person at home for training and socialization. No children. Applications can be found at

Please note that we will not adopt puppies under 6 months of age to apartments or homes without a safely fenced private yard due to their incomplete immunization. We require that they go to a home where someone will be home much of the time for training and with no children under 5 years of age due to a puppy’s sharp teeth. Also, no homes with pools unless they are securely fenced.

Please be aware that we rarely have information about cat compatibility as most of our foster homes don’t have cats. Adoption decisions are based on the best overall match and not done on a first-come-first-serve basis.
