Bluebonnet Animal Hospital Riverside Vet Animal of the Week: Meet Sonic from the Austin Animal Center

Job :

Meet Sonic, this adorable couch potato dog who loves tennis balls. Austin Animal Center for nearly a year and it’s crazy that it hasn’t been recovered yet! He is only 2 years old which means he has spent half of his little life in a kennel.

At the shelter, this goofy little man is a favorite of volunteers, but after recently going to a sleepover with one of his favorite volunteers, Austin Animal Center has compiled a list of reasons why Sonic can be described as a charming guest. and the next dog you should adopt!

  • Car rides? Yes please! Let’s go!
  • Sonic warmly greeted the family members and immediately asked for affection. Belly massages are her favorite!
  • Trained at home? yes, 100% and it will even let you know when it is due out
  • After exploring his new digs, he calmly settled in for some well-deserved rest and relaxation.
  • Once adapted to the neighborhood and taking in all the new sniffles, Sonic was able to settle into a good walking pace.
  • Taking a bath might not be his favorite activity in the world, but he did it!
  • During downtime, Sonic cuddled up next to his volunteer buddy and crashed for the night
  • Sonic LOVES his tennis balls! He likes to play fetch, but mostly he just wants to carry one around… kinda like a security blanket

Come to the Austin Animal Center any weekday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. to meet Sonic or one of their animals. Austin Animal Center is located at 7201 Levander Loop, Austin, TX 78702. Mark your calendar! On November 20, Austin Animal Center will be hosting free microchipping and rabies vaccinations at their clinic.

The center is at capacity with ample dog kennel space and is in desperate need of adopters and foster homes! Currently, adoption fees are waived.
