  Austin, 10 years Male Australian Terrier

Austin is a beautiful, little purebred Australian Terrier who needs a new home. He had a great home at one point in his life and he was even a therapy dog, but he fell on hard times and has been bounced around way too much. Despite the changes, he is friendly and happy with everyone who shows him any attention. He is estimated to be about 10 but certainly doesn't act it. He is peppy and loves to go for walks or to sit on the couch with you and watch TV. He is content to be with you and is very affectionate. He has diabetes and requires someone willing to give insulin shots and feed him a good diet. He requires two shots a day and is very cooperative. It really is no big deal for him. Save A Dog is willing to help with insulin and food if a senior or someone on a fixed income adopts him. He used to be a therapy dog! Please give him a chance. He was with one owner who gave him up when his lifestyle changed. The second adopter returned him because they didn't want to deal with the diabetes, so the agency transferred him to Save A Dog in hopes we would find him a loving home. He had his CGC (canine good citizens) certification at one time so might make a nice therapy dog. He is a great little dog who gets along with kids and dogs. He will chase cats, so a household with no cats would be best. He is housebroken, loves to play and still very active. He is a very easy, happy little dog. He even rings a bell when he needs to go outside. We thank his sponsors who helped pay for his medical work up. His sugar is normalized and he's gained weight so is looking awesome! Please give this sweet little dog a chance!
