Please welcome Carl to NTASR!


Carl found himself in a Central Texas animal shelter. Lucky for him though, shelter staff told Carl that they knew who is family was and that they would call them to tell his favorite people in the world that he was safe with them and would be waiting to be picked up.


Carl waited... and waited .... and waited... for a whole week for his family, but they never came for him. So Carl asked the shelter staff if they would please call NTASR because he just knew that we would help him.


When shelter staff call to ask if we would be interested in helping him, without pause we said YES and arranged for Carl to be transported to DFW.


Carl is a small Mini Aussie between 3 & 4 years old, neutered, fully vaccinated, microchipped, and Heartworm negative. Carl is house trained, kennel trained (though he's not a huge fan), great with other dogs, and loves to give kisses freely. We have it on good authority that he's particularly fond of playing with his foster sister Maple. When it comes to personality, this cuddle bug is all love all the time.


When Carl got to his foster home they said he walked in and made himself at home as if he had always been there. Carl is recovering from Flea Dermatitis and has hair loss in spots all over his body. Since coming to NTASR, he's been on medication, nutritious food, appropriate supplements, and we have noticed that Carl's hair has begun to grow back in.


Carl's ideal home would be with a family that will give him the best possible life. He would love a sibling (furry or human) to play Aussie games with. Carl has also requested a family that will allow him to smother them in kisses. Carl is looking for his best buddy (other than Maple). If you are looking for a super snuggly cuddle buddy, Carl says to look no further. NTASR will require Carl to be in a home with at least a 6 foot wooden fence as he has been known to climb chainlink fences.


Do you think you have what it takes to love Carl for the incredible pup that he is?
