Meet Austin, the most LOYAL and good boy!
Austin was a stray dumped in a Houston area neighborhood. At 6 months old, he was found roaming the streets for days before someone picked him up.
Austin is a super sweet and loving boy once he gets to know you. He will lay on your chest, cuddle beside you, and paw for your hand. He enjoys wrestling with other dogs and toys. He also loves to give hugs and get belly rubs, too! Austins favorite game is fetch. He is a master and will bring you the ball when you ask for it. Austin is an avid swimmer! He has even been known to throw the ball into the pool for himself to retrieve!
Austin is currently living with up to 5 other dogs... BIG, small, boys, girls dominant and submissive! Watch him sit and take treats with all of them here!
Austin is potty trained and house trained. Yup! A rescue that is house trained... Say what?! He is not destructive when free roaming the home. Austin has legs for days... he can jump short fences, so he will need a home with a tall secure fence. But on the other hand, this boy has THE BEST RECALL! He follows his foster mom outside off leash. He is as loyal as loyal can be. Austin does well with dogs of all sizes.
He prefers a gentle handler that uses positive training and tells him what to do, rather than forcing him to do it. Other than that, hes a pretty mellow guy who wants to lay in the sun and have his belly rubbed. Once bonded with his human, Austin does amazing in busy public areas. He can walk at a heel and welcomes strangers pets. He has been complimented at being a well mannered boy when out and about.
Austin is a vocal boy so an apartment would not be his best home. Ideally, a home with kids would be ages 10 and up and a backyard would be great for him.

The stray and animal overpopulation in the Greater Houston area is one of the highest in the nation. Statistics show that there are over 1 million homeless animals in this region alone! Three Little Pitties Rescue is a nonprofit dog and cat rescue that partners with the community to make a difference. Our mission is to reduce the homeless pet population through community outreach, free spay and neuter services, and saving all breeds of dogs and cats from the streets or animal shelters that oftentimes have no choice but to euthanize animals for space. We prepare them for adoption by properly vetting and providing individualized care through our incredible behavior program that consists of socialization and leash training for all animals that enter our adoption program prior to matching them with loving families who will treasure them for the rest of their lives. They are rescue dogs and will require continued training efforts once adopted, but will be well on their way to being the best dogs that they can be!
Three Little Pitties Rescue will soon be celebrating our 5 year anniversary! Over the course of this time, we have been very fortunate for so much growth, allowing us to further connect with the community and save many lives. Through the combined efforts of all of our hardworking staff and volunteers, we have placed over 10,000 very lucky dogs and cats into amazing homes! By adopting from us, you save TWO lives! The pet you adopt, and you create an opportunity for another animal to be brought into our rescue program. Together, we can be heroes.
