Happy Tail ~ Austin
Austin was a down on his luck senior fella' that found himself homeless in August. Fortunately, his luck was about to change. A KAR volunteer brought him into the rescue and two months later, a couple from Madison Wisconsin found him online. The couple has a special love for older dogs and, in particular, the Schnauzer breed. Austin's new mom drove all the way to Kalamazoo to meet him and complete the adoption.
Austin was a great traveler on the trip to his new home. And, he gets along wonderfully with the rest of the pack, ten Schnauzer brothers and sisters. The couple has kept in touch and they tell us that Austin is doing well. "He has such a great appetite and can be quite the beggar around the dining table. He is always looking for a treat. For a 14-year old, he gallops around the backyard and will run with one or more of the other dogs. When it's time to settle down and watch TV, he likes to sit on my lap."
His new mom adds, "Austin sends you a hug and smooch. If you were here to look into his eyes, you would see that he is quite contented and is enjoying his new forever home."
November is Adopt-A-Senior-Pet Month and mature pooches, like Austin, deserve second chances. This happy ever after just goes to show folks that seniors can lead an invigorating life and they make fantastic companions. KAR has several older cats and dogs looking for forever homes so check them out.
