Hi, I'm Owen and I'm looking for a family to call my own. I'd especially like a dad... one who is patient and kind, but who will set high expectations for me 'cause I'm really smart. Due to my not-so-awesome upbringing, I can be cautious of anything new - new sounds, new places, new people - they're all suspicious to me at first. I need a family who will be patient and encouraging and let me explore and expand my comfort zone at my own pace. I do like to get out and explore and grow more confident and comfortable as time passes. Although I could pass for a puppy in most photos, I'm actually about two years old and weigh about 32 lbs. I'm crate trained and house trained, but when I'm busy playing I can sometimes have accidents indoors. I'm getting better though! My foster family thinks that I'm not well suited to apartment life (I get sad and howl sometimes when my dad leaves for work or something startles me) and I'm not a good match for families with kids. I love playing with my toys and giving hugs and snuggles but am not much of a kisser. I get along pretty well with other dogs once I get to know them, and am respectful around cats. Interested in adoption?as with all CSRA dogs, adoptions require an application which you can find on our website at www.austincockerrescue.org Please note: we do not adopt dogs outside the state of Texas. Outside of our public scheduled meet and greets, meetings are only arranged for approved applicants. Thanks for your interest in rescue!
