Available for adoption at Austin Pets Alive!

3 Year Old Plott Hound Mix

One look at Jasmine and you will notice her brown, soulful eyes and large, soft ears.

Jasmine came to APA! with her four puppies and they were all in rough shape. Once they recovered in their foster home and the puppies were adopted, we found that Jasmine had been shot as well, as evidenced by a marble-sized pellet that gravitated from the back of her head down to her cheekbone....poor girl. No wonder she was so fearful! Thankfully, it didn't kill her spirit and this fearful girl has blossomed in her foster home.

Jasmine recently recovered from heartworm treatment and is feeling good. This goofy girl is ready to play! She holds her head high as she walks well on a leash and is starting to greet some people on her own. She's wanting to be more active, but remains content to lay around some of the time.

As she learned to trust her foster, got used to a leash, and less fearful of loud street noises, she started toileting outside when out on walks. Now she's housetrained, knows "sit," "leave it" and her name! When she gets playful or excited, she has the cutest swagger in her gait. It's been so rewarding to watch this scared girl open up and begin to enjoy life!

Jasmine needs a patient, fairly quiet home where she can continue to come out of her shell. She also needs to be the only pet in her new household. She does well with older children, but is still learning not to be afraid of loud noises and sudden movements.

This sweet girl is waiting for a loving home and patient person to discover her and show her that the world is not such a scary place after all. Can you show her the way?

Jasmine was taken off of the euthanasia list, so if you adopt her, you are saving not only her, but also the next dog Austin Pets Alive! can save in her place!
