2/28/2021 UPDATE: Augie arrived safely to CLR yesterday. Check back soon for an update!
Hi – I’m Augie! I’m around four years old and weigh 64lbs. I’m a mellow, Chocolate boy who loves people and other dogs! I threw a pretty killer party at the shelter I came from in Tennessee…one night, I opened every kennel one night and released alllll my friends to play! Can you blame me for wanting a going away party!?
Augie’s journey to Cincinnati began at the Tipton County Shelter in Tennessee where he landed after being found stray. Everyone at the shelter said he’s extremely sweet, and they got a huge kick out of the “party” he threw! The volunteers who transported Augie to Cincinnati said he’s a really good boy and loads into the car no problem. He was well behaved in his kennel, but rode well tethered in the backseat, too…he napped for that portion of the drive!
Augie was curious and friendly towards other dogs he met along the way, but could also leave them alone and be calm. He already knows “Sit” (he showed off several times during transport!) and is definitely motivated by treats. Augie is already quite well-behaved and we think he would make a great first dog for some lucky family!
Medical Note: Augie tested positive for heartworm and will begin his heartworm treatment 3/10. He can still go home with you and your family, but will need to continue to go in for treatment and lay low while he’s on the mend.
