Greg. Greggy. Gregory.

Greg arrived as owner surrenders at Austin Animal Center in May 2022. Greg's acclimation to the shelter environment took a while - but with the guidance and the lap of one of the volunteers he started to make friends and gain notoriety as one of the most affectionate dogs on campus.

While Greg cuddles were in high demand, his time at AAC was marred by recurrent ear infections and skin allergies - both leaving him perpetually uncomfortable. Many ear washes and trial diets later, he was transferred to Austin Pets Alive - the hope being that better medical management of these issues would make him more comfortable and more likely to be scooped up by a foster or an adopter.

But, even with his ear/skin issues improved, Greg continues to wait for his chance at home life. If you ask any one of Greg's advocates to describe what they love about him, they will first mention his snuggles - full body leans and lap sits . . . his deep, soulful eyes affirming that yes, you are his safe space . . . that peace is found in the loving embrace of close friends.

Greg is the perfect houseguest - house trained, non-destructive and, yes, 100% a lap dog.

Ready and waiting.

Sweet, soulful, sensitive Greg. His future home is kind and gentle - there are movie nights, snacks, couch cuddles . . . love and constancy will be chosen every day. This boy . . . he wants nothing more than to live quietly amongst trusted humans - to find solace in arms that will hold him forever.

Greg is currently available for foster or adoption .

INTERESTED IN FOSTERING?

This pup is currently located at our Town Lake Animal Center (1156 W. Cesar Chavez, but use 1200 Reserve Road for mapping purposes). We'd love to show them off to you! To learn more about them, head in any day between 12:00PM - 6:00PM. We are open 7 days a week! Go to Building B and ask to speak with a Matchmaker about fostering this pup. You will sit down and discuss all we know about them and, if it's a good fit, get to meet them then! Please budget for a wait time unless you arrive right at opening as we cannot dictate walk-in traffic (wait times tend to be highest in the evenings and on weekends). If this pup ends up not being the best fit, we have so many other pups in need that we can suggest for your household on the spot!

Come meet your new best friend
