Angel is so well named. She is an angelic lady who loves people instantly as soon as she meets them. She nuzzles her head into them and lightly nudges their hands for petting. Then she'll roll around on her back, hoping for their belly rubs. They are already her new best friends and she'll follow them everywhere.

In her foster home, Angel loves getting cuddles and given a chance, she turns into a lap puppy. Her favorite part of the day involves getting head and belly petting. Then she also loves wandering around the backyard, exploring and following her dog buddies. She would like to play with them, but they're older and too lazy. So she'll go back inside to snooze and snuggle with her foster mom.

This gentle, calm girl can get excited on her leash walks and pull, but she's making great progress on her leash training. At home, she goes in her crate for naps and sleeps there overnight. She has arthritis in her back legs and is recovering from surgery for mammary masses. She's house-trained and does well when she's home alone for up to six hours. With her medical issues, she needs her outdoor potty breaks about then and will scratch at the door to go out.

Angel is an independent, easygoing lady who will love a home with parents who can be home with her most of the day and can continue her training. She'll be happy as the only pet or with well-mannered doggie siblings. Come meet this lovable girl. And you can see more about her on Instagram: Adopt_Angel_in_Austin.
