COURTESY POST: Boss is a 7 year old Siberian Husky/German Shepherd mix but you would never guess he was a day over 2 with his rambunctious disposition and supersoft coat. Boss is a snuggle bug and especially enjoys getting his belly and ears scratched and napping in bed with his humans. Other hobbies include playing fetch, chasing squirrels, and relaxing with a nice rawhide chew. He attended basic obedience training and knows sit, down, wait, and drop it. He has been a city dog his whole life but loves any chance to play in the country.

Boss has been in a loving home since he was a puppy but is in need of a new home because his family added a baby to the pack, and Boss has displayed some aggressive behavior. He is a marshmallow with adults and despite his problems with children in the home, he simply ignores them when passing them on walks.

Boss needs a home without any young children and needs someone who has experience with large strong-willed breeds, preferably Huskies. He also needs someone who has the strength and energy to meet his need for 45-60 min/day of structured walks (and/or the finances to send him to doggy daycare). He's attended doggy daycare and boarding, and is well socialized in that environment, though he occasionally growls when encountering other dogs while leashed or in dog parks. He could be in a home with another dog if the chemistry is good, particularly if the other dog is submissive. He is not off-leash trained so would do best in a fenced environment in case of a home with outside space.

Boss is a hilarious happy boy and will be a loving companion and devoted protector for the right human family.

This is a COURTESY POST (i.e., this is not a Badass Brooklyn Animal Rescue dog). If you can provide a safe and structured home for Boss and are interested in adopting, please email adoptboss@gmail.com for more information and to set up a meeting.

About Badass Brooklyn Animal Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

SINCE MARCH OF 2011 OUR TEAM HAS RESCUED OVER 1400 DOGS FROM VERY HIGH KILL, RURAL SHELTERS IN AL, FL, GA, LA, NC, SC, KY AND WV AND FOUND THEM ALL GREAT FOREVER HOMES.

Badass Brooklyn Animal Rescue is a 501(c)3 non-profit, all volunteer network of rescuers, fosters and volunteers who work together to rescue, rehabilitate and find homes for sweet, loving, adoptable dogs from pounds in the rural south. The dogs we rescue are in danger of imminent death as they are on the kill lists at very high volume, high kill pounds. Some of these animal control facilities use extremely inhumane practices like gas chambers and heartstick to euthanize the dogs and many have kill rates over 90% before rescues get involved.

When we commit to rescuing a dog, we make sure the dog is well cared for and properly vetted. We spay/neuter, vaccinate, test for heartworm, provide flea and heartworm preventative, and deworm at private vets local to the shelter they come from. We treat illnesses before adoption, most often heartworm, but have also treated parvo and distemper, and provided for necessary surgeries for dogs with serious injuries. The dogs stay in local fosters or boarding for at least 2 weeks or until they are healthy enough to travel. Then they ride up north with professional rescue transporters who make sure their ride is as comfortable and stress-free as possible.

When they arrive, the dogs go into foster homes where they get training and experience living in a home environment before adoption. Some of the lucky ones even get adopted upon arrival! We want the dogs to be in the best possible adoptive home, so we are diligent in finding the right match. Our thorough process includes three personal references, a vet reference and a home visit.

As an all-volunteer, non-profit 501c3 organization, all of our resources go directly to rescuing, rehabilitating, and re-homing Badass dogs. It takes a lot of money, time, space, and brainpower to rescue responsibly and we can use all the help we can get. If you can foster a dog, volunteer your time and skills, or donate funds or goods, please let us know. It takes a great community of dedicated people to save these deserving dogs and we welcome your involvement.
