I have a 4 year old australian cattle dog mix, Lucy, and a 2 year old cat, Oliver. They love running around in our huge backyard.Lucy and I often take trips to the dog park close by and she love playing with other dogs.I've fostered for Austin Pets Alive! in the past and currently am a volunteer with the Austin Humane Society, so I have lots of experience with temporarily taking care of all types of dogs!
I'm currently a Biology/Ecology student at UT, living in North Austin.
I've always loved dogs of all sizes. It wasn't until I moved to Austin that I started to foster both dog and cats.
I would want to know how they interact with other dogs and cats, if they have any medical issues or if your dog likes to chase cats and jump fences. I don't have any breed preferences.
Yes, I have administered medication many times before, to my own pets and fosters.
As much time as I do with my own. If I'm not in class, I'm usually at the house hanging out with my pets.
In the backyard there is an open area by the patio with our little "forest" in the back. If your dog likes to chase cats and jump fences please let me know. My dog loves to give cats kisses, so much so, that she would be constantly jumping the fence to get to our neighbor's cats. The yard is completely fenced in by a 4-ft. chain fence.
So if your dog could easily jump this then we could just stick to walks around the neighborhood.
Indoors definitely. Preferably in a crate if they are crate trained. If not, (like Lucy) they will probably crash on the couch or the bed. I'm pretty flexible, as long as they don't destroy everything in the house.
Either around the neighborhood or to the dog park off North Lamar. It generally depends on the dog. But if we do go to the dog park I probably won't be taking them off the leash, just so I don't have to chase anyone down!
