Austin Swift is such a happy and playful boy! We met him the day we rescued his sister Taylor Swift from a Lancater County, PA breeding farm. He was being treated for something called puppy strangles. It is an auto-immune issue that randomly affects some puppies but he had a mild case on his face and ears that resolved with treatment. He was eventually surrendered to us a few weeks after Taylor Swift because we called the breeder to follow up and tell them about Taylor’s tail pull injury. We were told during that call that Austin had a break towards the end of the tail and they wanted to give him up, too. So, Austin and his mom we named Andrea Swift (do you see a trend here?) came to Finding Shelter for medical care, lots of TLC and now, to find forever homes! 

Austin is high energy, always alert and curious. He loves to run and play with his mom and sister but also loves toys and to explore the yard. He is very curious about everything! Austin’s medical treatment and care is complete so he is ready to find his forever home and happily ever after! *

*All dogs will go through a transition period after finding a new home and may need a “refresher course” in house-breaking.
