I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, and not good with cats.
Big Brown Sugar's Story...
Hi! My name is Big Brown Sugar. Are you looking for a mellow dog? How about a couch potato? Well, then look no further. I am Mr. Couch Potato. When it was hot outside last weekend, I was lounging in the sun and I really wanted my toy, which was just out of reach. So rather than waste energy getting up, I just belly crawled a couple of feet to get my toy. Then I went back to lounging in the sun with my toy in my mouth. Now, don't get me wrong. I love to take walks and to play with people and with toys. I just have a lower speed setting in life. Why rush? I am a wonderful, loving dog who likes to cuddle and hang out. I'm a 4-year-old, neutered male who weighs about 70 lbs. I'm friendly, loving and smart. I know how to sit and lie down. I walk nicely on a leash too.
I live at the Oakland County Animal Control and Pet Adoption Center at 1700 Brown Rd in Auburn Hills. You can visit me there any time the shelter is open. The shelter will not put me up for adoption because of my appearance, so my only way out of the shelter alive is through a rescue. I did very well on my temperament test with Chiquita and Hershel, which means I'm good with most other dogs, but I can be dominant with other male dogs. I do need a home with no cats. I'm microchipped and current on my vaccines. I tested negative for heartworm and I'm ready to go. Please help me find the home of my dreams.

Adoption and Foster Care ApplicationAdoption Process:
NOTE ABOUT BREED LABELING: Visual breed identification of dogs is unreliable and usually inaccurate. So, for most of our adoptable dogs, we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label.
Why is labeling a dog such a big deal? A label will stick with a dog for the rest of its life. A label can mean discrimination, losing its home or even death. Labels are a problem for the dogs when we, as the local experts on animals, allow adopters, politicians and community members to think that the label we assign can predict who that dog is or will be.

. We then arrange a location, date and time for you to meet some pets. If the meeting goes well and everyone is happy, you begin the mandatory, minimum two-week adjustment period with the pet as part of your family. You will pay the non-refundable adoption fee at the start of the two-week adjustment period. This pending period allows your new dog or cat time to adjust to their new home, new people, new routine, etc., and for you to decide if it's a match and the right pet for you. At the end of two weeks (some people extend the adjustment time as needed and that's fine too), if everyone is happy, then we finalize the adoption. Feel free to email if you have any questions.
