To kick off our "Picture This Pet" series in conjunction with Austin Pets Alive!, we bring you a handsome fella who had a hard-knock start to life but is eager to get into a permanent home. He's spent a lot of time with APA! in training and obedience classes and is currently being nurtured in a foster home. Check out his bio below. 

Name: Kermit

Sex: Male

Breed: Terrier, American Staffordshire Collie, Smooth

Weight: 40 pounds

Size: Medium

Sign: Taurus

Age: 3 years, 10 months

Spayed/Neutered: Yes

Adoption Donation: $25

Location: In foster

Surprise fact: Kermit does great with cats.

What APA! says about Kermit:

  • He's a softie who likes to curl up on the couch and rest his chin on a friendly lap. 
  • He'd make a great hiking buddy — he even loves car rides! And he loves playing fetch, tug and working the agility course.

Why APA! says Kermit deserves your love:

  • Kermit had a tough start, but he's come a long way. He was a stray and came back to APA emaciated with a bad heart, but with inexpensive daily medications, he's a happy healthy boy. 
  • He didn't have any training before he came to APA!, but since he's been back, he's completed a basic obedience class, discovered a love of agility and is a star in our TTouch classes.

In summary: If you're an active adult who is looking for a loyal walking, running or hiking partner, you don't have any other dogs, and you enjoy cuddling on the couch — this guy is for you.

To donate or adopt Kermit, call APA! today at 512-961-6519.
