Bluebonnet Animal Hospital Animal of the Week is “Adina”

Every week we feature a new furry friend looking for their forever home in our Pet of the Week Bluebonnet Animal Hospital.

Adina came ADR earlier this year carrying a litter of puppies that were all adopted, and now Adina is ready to find her forever home. Adina is very nice with people, but she can be a bit shy at first. Once she’s comfortable, she enjoys being around her human, and her goofy, fun-loving personality comes through. She loves to play, especially with a frisbee, but once she has some energy she can be a very discreet dog. She also loves a good chew toy and will happily play with one.

Adina is a very independent dog and would do best with an experienced owner who will continue training and provide structure, rules and boundaries within their home. She thrives in an environment where she knows what is expected of her. She can be a little stubborn, but is very food driven, which helps her a lot when debating whether to follow instructions.

Adina would be better suited as a single dog and we wouldn’t consider her a ‘dog park dog’. As mentioned, she prefers structure and boundaries. She’s ok with being around other dogs in a controlled environment where everyone’s on a leash and she has her own space, but she doesn’t want to be social with strange dogs.

ADR would not recommend Adina for a home with young children or cats/other small animals.

Austin Dog Rescue’s mission is to end the cycle of homeless animals by rescuing dogs from shelters in Central Texas. If you want to know more about Adina or any other available pets, go to
