Bluebonnet Animal Hospital & Riverside Vet ‘Pet of the Week’: Meet Melrose, from the Austin Animal Center!

Austin Animal Center is featured Melrose, hoping that their longest stay dog ​​will touch someone’s heart.

AAC says Melrose is a 2-year-old 50-pound white pointer. Over the two years of his short life, he stayed at the Austin Animal Center for 454 days.

Melrose is looking for an experienced dog owner with a quiet, calm home. Right now, he should be the only pet in the house, but he could potentially have a doggie friend in the future once he gets enough decompression time. He would thrive in a home with a yard and he loves playing with squeaky toys and tug-of-war.

Nicknamed “Mell” by all his volunteer friends, he loves affection and greets people with love – and lots of movement!

Melly has a dog trainer who comes to AAC and works with him regularly to keep her mind and body healthy!

AAC also says, “We currently have a crisis with a large dog space. We will continue to advocate with the Austin community that if you’ve ever wanted to adopt or adopt, now is the time! Adoption fees are waived. $0 for your new best friend. »

Austin Animal Center has winter hours for adoption. You can see the available animals from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., every day. Visit their website for more information.
