Hello, my name is andre the big boy because I'm a massive maine coon. I weigh a good 17 pounds. I am a bit grouchy but its not my fault. I have been passed around countless times. My human butler does not know exactly how many because I just ran in one night to her house. She knew I was living with her downstairs neighbour but wasn't getting along with her cats. Before that I was with someone else for a day and than someone for 2 months before that. That's all my human butler knows but she took me in and feeds me and let's me sleep on her pillow. I ignore her cuddles and do my own thing.
The life of a rescue dog: I was born into this world, lonely and afraid. I was taken from my family at a very young age. I spent over a year of my life in a shelter when I was a puppy. I slept on hard concrete floors, went outside once a day, and wasn’t sure what each new day would bring. I was adopted at 6 months old only to be returned by a hooman that did not understand me. With so much uncertainty survival was my only goal in life, I did not know how to be a dog.
Then one day a family came to see me at the shelter. To my surprise they had another dog. The dog was happy, playful and confident. We got along great! The hoomans were gentle, patient, and very kind to me. This was all so new to me that I didn’t know what to think. We played in the yard for a while, went on a little walk, but the hoomans brought me back to my kennel. I thought for sure this was the family. As I sadly sat in the kennel for what seemed like an eternity the family came back!!! They put the collar around my neck and told me everything is going to be ok, walked me out to their car and I hopped in. I knew I had found a family.
Today, I have my forever home with my hoomans in Morrison. Now I go on hikes, runs, play with toys, get treats, and share endless cuddles. My life is not so hard anymore. This is all thanks to the love and the chance that one family gave! Maybe that’s all we need in life, love, and chance.
The new life of a rescue dog 🐾 .
I swear his bath wasn’t that bad 😂😂😂😂 pouty pants clearly did not enjoy his first bath but he behaved appropriately. He stood still and didn’t try to jump out, BUT he did shake about a million times 😑 as always we used our @legendarycanine soap!

Please help me find my next foster home. My friend can only keep me until this weekend. I have a torn ACL and will be getting surgery next month. I’m looking for someone to help me stay out of the cold and rehab. If you know anyone who could foster me, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org. #austinpetsalive#seniordogs @apaseniorclassdogs @apafosterdogneeds @apafosterdogadoptions #adoptdontshop#austintexas#austin#rescuesarethebest#fostertoadopt#pitbullfriends
I just wanted to share with you that I’ve had a medical scare on Tuesday.
I went to the neurologist at @animalspecialtycenter for a medical evaluation for my neck pain. An MRI revealed protruding discs in my neck, at the level c2-c3.
My amazing doctor (Dr. Kornberg) says there are many variables that involve this type of injury. It could be something as simple as rolling over incorrectly in ones bed, or just aging.
This has been the most excruciating pain I have ever endured. I’m also extremely scared.
At this time we elected a conservative treatment plan. I will be on pain management for two weeks, which entails pain medication and plenty of rest.
Hopefully this will do the trick and my discs will slip back into place. However, if the pain persist and I do not improve, I will have to undergo surgery. Which is a scary thought since it is invasive and recovery is harsh.
Please keep me in your prayers 🙏🏼
I will keep you updated with my progress. 🦊💋
