Hi, my name is Aussie. I am a beautiful 3 legged doggo, but I don’t let that get in the way of having fun! I can’t wait to be adopted. I hope you will fill out an online pre-adopt application and mention me! It sure would be great to have a family to love me, because I will give you lots of smiles and unconditional love.
Aussie is spending his social distancing time in a loving foster home! Here is what his foster mom has to say:
Aussie is such a social pup and has the perfect blend of energy and chill. He has become my shadow— following me any time I am moving about the house but settling right down next to me when I’m just hanging on the couch. He is very playful and loves his toys. Because he is a tripod, he has struggled with the wood and tile floors, as well as, going up stairs. He has adjusted well to using the elevator in our building, and would probably be more comfortable with stairs if they were carpeted so he could get some traction. He is very food motivated which has made him easy to train. He has done very well with our 9 year old Maltese; he is interested in her but the feeling isn’t mutual— he has done a great job of giving her the space she wants. He sleeps through the night without a peep, staying put in bed until we are up in the morning. After having him for a week, I think he’d do best in a home where someone is available to walk him 4-5x a day. He has greeted every dog he’s met with a wagging tail and same with men, women, children alike. He is going to make some family very happy!!
