Hey Everypawdy!

Meet Mr. +1 himself, the one, the only Austin Ray! We are fostering this great dude until the perfect forever home shows up. Could it be YOU???? Pleeeeeze say yes! It is kinda cool to be the only house on the planet with three resident tripawd GSDs and we love him, but our house and yard just aren’t big enough! Plus Codie Rae is wearing herself out trying to regulate us all. To learn all about Austin click on his name or photo. Feel free to PM my mom as well!

Austin Ray...could you be ANY more handsome? I think not!

Are you willing to travel? I wish you could come live with me, but my mom and dad spend a lot of time traveling. So you would miss out on some good training's. I sleep a lot so I don't need no stinkin' training!!

But Mom is really involved in local rescues and placements and knows lots of peeps. Tell me what you think.

What a doll. Those ears! I hope he finds a wonderful furever home soon!

{Don't worry though Travis Ray... Angel Abby still thinks you are the handsomest of all!)

Abby: Aug 1, 2009 – Jan 10, 2012. Our beautiful rescue pup lived LARGE with osteosarcoma for 15 months – half her way-too-short life. I think our "halflistic" approach (mixing traditional meds + supplements) helped her thrive. (PM me for details. I'm happy to help.) She had lung mets for over a year. They took her from us in the end, but they cannot take her spirit! She will live forever in our hearts. She loved the beach and giving kisses and going to In-N-Out for a Flying Dutchman. Tripawds blog, and a more detailed blog here. Please also check out my novel, What the Dog Ate. Now also in paperback! Purchase it at Amazon via Tripawds and help support Tripawds!

OK dude, so the plan is...we buy lots of lotto tickets so my peeps can afford to buy a bigger doghouse on wheels. Then, you can join our pack and we can raise hell!

So tell your foster peeps to chill out and hang onto you just a little longer, I feel a lucky streak coming on....

So… WRD how is that plan going to get +1 out of Oaktown? Austin Ray is really ready for a new home. This is a boy who really had it rough. When he arrived at the Modesto shelter on September 30, 2011 he weighed 52 pounds! Yesterday he was a healthy 77 pounds. He has gone through 5 months of treatments, but he seems to be fully healthy and ready to find his furever home. If you know anyone that might be interested, have them check out his website, or they can PM me, or the members of Oaktown Pack +1.

A very handsome boy and I can say he was very well mannered at the last Tripawd pawty. A Tripawd Starsuperstar

The photos on the photo website are indeed wonderful. I will send them on to anyone I can think of who might be interested.

Hugs & wags

I wanted to bump this up because Austin is still looking for a home. We had the pleasure of meeting him this weekend and he is a WONDERFUL, sweet dawg. He even got along with Tripawds Spokespup Wyatt Ray , who is NOT an easy dog to get along with. We were really tempted to take him but financially it just won't work. So we ask all of you to help spread the word about this sweet Tripawd looking for a home. Thanks!
