This is a blog for the Hard Luck Hounds, a program that is the product of Austin Animal Center, the largest open-intake, no-kill shelter in the United States (located in Austin, TX). Hard Luck Hounds is for the dogs that have been waiting in the shelter the longest–this may be because they are past the cute puppy stage, they're a pit bull, or they may have some behavior/medical issues. Too often, these dogs would wait for months for adopters that would never come and end up euthanized. That's where Hard Luck Hounds come in–we advocate for the unwanted dogs by giving them the extra push they need. Each HLH dog comes to you FREE of charge with all shots, microchip, new collar w/tags, crate, $150 worth of professional training, a FREE vet exam with a local vet, and of course, a lifetime of tech support any time you need it to ensure that the adoption works out.

Hansum, a 4 year old bully mix of some sort, is almost the textbook definition of “gentle giant”–he is truly BIG (too big to be “just” a pit bull)! 

Hansum may look intimidating, but don’t let looks fool you: this boy has a calm personality and is easy to handle. He loves leaning up against you and getting butt scratches and seems to be good with other dogs. He also knows some basic obedience and seems housebroken.  

Unfortunately, he is a lethal combination: big, black, pit bull, and heartworm positive. Despite his good nature, he is the type of dog people either look over or avoid all together. However, we know who ever is lucky enough to adopt him won’t regret it–just look at that big, bully smile!

Hansum is free of charge to the right adopters and comes to you vaccinated, neutered, microchipped, with a new collar, crate, and $200 towards heartworm treatment on top of lifetime support for the HLH team.

We are located in Austin, TX, and will adopt out to Austin and surrounding areas.
