Niño has lived a sheltered life – no pun intended. He previously lived at a quiet house and didn’t meet many new humans or animals. Niño was dropped off at AAC his former owners had no place to house him, and at first everything felt pretty scary for him.Niño soon discovered that he has a big team of shelter friends working to show him that we are here to help him and to love him. Once Niño gets to know you, he is the sweetest little snuggler… once he’s shown off his spectacular zoomies! He is treat-motivated, knows sit, and is ready to learn more. ??Treats and patience go a long way for Niño! With proper introductions, Niño is learning new people aren’t so scary. His crew will gladly show you how to help Niño shine! This boy has proven himself a fashionista as well. He has his own personal stylist and for proper payment (treats ??), he is ready for his photoshoot and even gives the camera a smile. If you are looking to make a difference in a dog’s life that has been uprooted from everyone and everything he’s ever known… willing to go slowly… be his hero… then Niño is the pup for you! Niño is looking for a compassionate adopter in a pet-free home who will let him continue to get to know the world at his own speed. Niño will go home with a crate, harness, and goody bag, as well as free training support thanks to Friends of Austin Animal Center. The Orange Dot Crew (a volunteer advocacy group at Austin Animal Center) will be there every step of the way to make sure that Nino is set up for success with his new family.
