Bridger's Story...
Bridger is a beautiful big-hearted young dog who loves everyone. He would make an excellent therapy dog. He is a huge suck and wants nothing but to give and get cuddles he is smart and seemingly empathetic. He would do well in just about any situation. He is approximately 1 1/2 to 2 years old and currently weighs 64 lbs.

Here is what else his foster family had to say:

Bridger has been supper friendly with all people and is very good with other dogs and loves to play with all his dog friends. He is not shy and easily makes friends with everyone he meets. He would be fine with respectful children of all ages but would love to have older children that would enjoy playing with him. I have not had him around any cats so I am unsure about that but he is a gentle soul so I am assuming he would be okay with proper introductions.

Bridger does have some anxiety about being let alone and will cry for a bit when you first leave him. He has somehow managed to escape his crate twice, damage was limited to Kleenex and toilet rolls. He is a young dog and does need further socialization as he does exhibit nervousness around loud noises and vehicles, and he will bark at the door 3 times if he hears something in the hallway. Generally however, he is very quiet in the home. Bridger's favorite thing is to cuddle. He also loves to to play with his little stuffed dog and enjoys playing with all of his dog friends in the neighborhood.

Bridger has excellent house manners. He does not counter surf and or get into anything he shouldn't except for the two incidents he escaped his crate but all he did was find a Kleenex box to shred. There was no damage to anything important. He might be better left out of the crate entirely. He has been learning all of his basic commands and knows sit, come, lie down drop and stay to a certain extent. We are working on heel and left. He is fully house trained and is very patient. He will pace when he needs or wants to go out. He is leash trained and we are working on heel. He does still pull but further training will help curtail this.

Bridger would make an excellent therapy dog but in the interim he will need someone that is willing to continue with his socialization and training. He will make a wonderful family pet or a single's companion. He is a big lover and enjoys attention from anyone. He still has some puppy energy but he is eager and willing to please making him easy to train.

If you think Bridger would be a good choice for your situation, please submit an application for consideration.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Bridger, a Hamilton Collie/Bull Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Collie/Bull Terrier for sale in Hamilton, or seeking a Collie/Bull Terrier dog from a breeder in Hamilton.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Hamilton already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Hamilton breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Collie/Bull Terrier breeders who help with Collie/Bull Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Hamilton paves the way for another one to be saved.
