Austin’s Auction

Austin’s Story

Meet Austin. Austin’s story is an incredibly sad one. He was removed from an abusive home in June. His owner often became angry and when he did, Austin was the focus of his rage. He repeatedly threw Austin down the stairs, he beat him with a plunger, and when he ran into the road (because he wasn’t being properly supervised), the owner picked him up and threw him out of the road. There were also reports of Austin being beaten with a bat and kicked with steel toe boots.

Austin’s owner broke every one of his ribs, shattered his hips and legs, injured his head, and more. Austin has spent his entire puppy life in pain, instead of playing happily as a puppy should. He can’t run like other puppies, it hurts too much. It even hurts to lay down. He was finally taken from his owner and placed at the Brennan Humane Society.

The wonderful people at the Brennan Humane Society reached out to us and we have taken Austin into our rescue. Austin has a very long road ahead of him but for the first time in his life he is on the path to a loving home. He is such a testament to the forgiving nature of a dog. He still loves everybody! He loves people, he loves dogs, he loves cats! He is just one of the sweetest dogs ever and he just wants to be close to you.

    Austin’s story is what pushed me over the edge and donate all my United Way pledge to Out of the Pits. Even though I live in Minnesota – a long way from NY – I had to help. One of my dogs is also a rescued Pittie – Meatball, a goofy, crazy, loving dog. Thanks for all your hard work and hope that Austin feels better soon, so he can finally see that all people are not a**holes like his previous owner.

    This story is to sad. People who treat animals like this have serious problems mentally. They say people who abuse animals also abuse humans.
    Did you find out about the monster that owned him?

    We have and adorable pittie called Thor. He was also abused. How could someone do that to him. He was hit and beaten on the nose. Thor has to touch you to smell you. It is so sad but he is a great dog.
