Are you looking for love? Get Lucky! Lucky is a sophisticated 13 year old, low energy senior standard Aussie who joined us after his owner died. He doesn't do the Tango any more, but he has plenty of vigor left for that special family! He is the perfect gentlemen, gets along with other dogs (although he isn't into zoomies, he gracefully tolerates the younger generation’s shenanigans), takes his business outside without accidents, and is perfectly content to hang out alone in the house waiting for your return. He loves ambles through the neighborhood, especially if you stop and smell the roses, and he's always up for a car ride! He came to us grossly obese, lethargic, and with his coat matted and dull. With a lot of work and love, he is making a wonderful transformation! Today, he is perky, losing weight, has a shine to his coat, and will dance for his dinner. His current foster works from home and he keeps her company beside her desk, warns her when the dangerous Amazon delivery guy comes, and makes sure she knows when it's quitting time (aka puppy supper time)! We are looking for a foster to adopt family for Lucky to help him continue his weight loss journey and make some memories! If you are looking for love, look no further!
Lucky is up to date on vetting, neutered, Heartworm negative, microchipped, and on monthly Heartworm and flea prevention. He was 77 lbs. when he joined us and is now 64 lbs., but needs to continue working towards his estimated goal weight of 50-55 lbs through strict food management and regular daily walks. His senior blood work was all good when he joined us and he has no medical issues we are aware of at this time!
He is being fostered in AUSTIN and is available for foster to adopt in Texas and some areas of Oklahoma. If chosen, you must be able to travel to Austin within 7 days of application approval.
