Meadow has the best wiggly nub tail and the brightest smile for the ones she loves! She is exceptionally cuddly and her favorite thing to do is rest her smushy chin in your lap for pets. Our ABR volunteers heard about Meadow when she was spotted as a stray in a suburb of Austin. They spent over a week tracking her, until they were finally able to lure her to them with delicious brisket (she's a bulldog, duh!!). We're not sure what Meadow had been through during that time, but fending for herself has certainly made her a little wary of new people and situations at first. That said, once she realizes you are her friend, she is the most loving, affectionate lap dog! And her foster has been doing so much with her to introduce her to new experiences and new people, that she's really starting to understand that humans can be good, kind, and bring the best snacks with them! It really has helped that she is living in an apartment complex, so she has had plenty of opportunities to work on her brave girl skills. And speaking of which, Meadow is a fabulous leash walker and totally house/crate trained! Meadow sometimes barks when she sees other dogs, but has made huge strides in trusting her handler and understanding there's nothing for her to be afraid of. Meadow would do best in a home with older kids and no other pets. And really, how can you look into those forever puppy dog eyes of hers and tell her she needs to share attention with anyone else?
Meadow is available for adoption to qualified adopters in the contiguous 48 states. ABR would prefer approved applicants to come to TX to meet their match, with their family and dog(s), but we recognized this isn’t always possible. In such cases, approved adopters should be willing to participate in video interviews with the entire family to meet their match virtually. Adopters must also provide a transportation plan for their new family member that will require approval from the ABR Board. This needs to be paid for by the adopter, in addition to the dog’s adoption fee. Adopters need to also be prepared arrange safe transport back to the Austin area, should adoption not work out. Please be prepared to provide vet and personal references in your application for us to contact when considering your family.
