Although Austin has never actually been to Texas, his dignified name suggests that he’s destined for something great and magical.

Austin is described as an energetic boy who has a yearning for companionship. He is the perfect size for lap sitting and cuddling.

His dream is to reach his destined greatness in a new loving home.
