Rocky Austin

ON TEMPORARY MEDICAL HOLD!
What a sad day indeed. But, you know, life happens and sometimes you can’t fix a situation. You just have to make do with what you are given and pray for the best outcome.
My family has been teetering on the edge of surrendering me for a while now, and they finally came to the decision that they would do what was best for me. We stayed up all night crying and wiping away the tears, but this morning, I packed my food and a couple medications, and I was out the door.
The only reason I am here is because my family had to move into an RV park and talk around the park is that residents should expect rolling black outs and hours without air conditioning this summer. My ears perked up when I heard that. Having no air conditioning in the Texas heat was just not going to work for me. Our home is small, and it will get hot fast. I heard a lot of “what if’s” and “what might happen?” And I thought, “Please let me go because heat and I don’t mix.” With my family being new to the area, there was really no one who could check on me during those hot July days.
I have been to the skin doctor and I take a pill for itching, and I use a special medicated shampoo. I also need a little snip snip to alter my ego. The worst part is I tested positive for heartworms. Believe me, everyone was shocked. But with the confusion of leaving our home, I had to have missed a heartworm pill. I hear it only takes one missed dose and one mosquito bite and the rest in history. I am only a “light positive,” but a positive is a positive. I am sure not looking forward to that treatment, but heartworms are serious and I am all about getting healthy.
I am 5 years and 5 months old. I love all other dogs and my family had kids and I loved them too. So, follow me through my stay in rescue and watch for pics of my new family when I celebrate my adoption day.
6/7/21 Update: Foster boy Rocky Austin decided to pack his bags, leave the vet clinic and come visit Sir S’mores A’lot’s Bulldog BnB. He’s super excited. And really loves riding in the car!
6/10/21 Update:  Rocky Austin has been here a few days. So far, so good. He and S’mores get along great. But they don’t get too play much. S’mores only has one speed and it’s more than Rocky can take while he’s recovering. Rocky really wants to join the play babies and have fun though. Just a few more days big boy. Then you’ll be all recovered and you can play too.
