Shelter Staff made the following comments about this animal:
Augie is a really great boy - and such a stunning color. He is a happy boy that would love to warm a lap (even if he is a big boy). He doesn't like to share food with other cats or the dog (no issues with humans), so he would best as an only dog - to give all his love exclusively to his new family. He is very gentle taking treats from humans. We've also learned that Augie just LOVES to fetch. He ran after the ball for a long time, bringing it back each time within our reach. He would be a great addition to a family - a lot of love and fun! Augie is smart and knows basic commands. He will do best with daily exercise - fetch or walks.

Our PAWs volunteers found Augie to be a sweet, big boy. He walked well on a harness and has walked well with many different groups of dogs in the park. He wasn't distracted by either dogs, bikes, or runners. He checks in with his walker often. He even watched chipmunks walk by and ignored them. Augie rode great in the car and knows the commands for ‘here’ and ‘sit’. Overall they thought he was a good boy and is a great kisser.

*notes about TJO and our dogs:
- To adopt a dog, all family members (human and canine) must meet.
- Our profiles are written before the dogs see our vet. Medical information can be found by asking one of our adoption counselors.
- Visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable so for most of the dogs we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label.
