Austin’s Report Card (A793451)
Type of dog:
Austin is a Boxer mix who arrived at Toronto Animal Services with some baggage – but we’re teaching him how to let go. He has a sweet personality and enjoys carrying stuffed toys in his mouth. While he came with some trust issues and reactive behaviour, he is learning, every day, to trust again.
What Austin needs when you adopt him:
We want to find someone who will take their time with him, is committed to meeting his needs, and understands what makes him comfortable and uncomfortable. Austin will benefit from regular training sessions in both private and class settings. He will also benefit from continued socialization in a controlled setting.
His trainers say: “Austin continues to do well and is progressing with his training. We have introduced Austin to people, and he continues to become more comfortable when approached in a positive environment. He is still unsure of people that appear unexpectedly, but it is becoming easier to redirect and settle him down.”
