Briggs is quite a handsome boy. You can see his partial Doberman heritage when you look at him but his demeanor is quite different. Briggs is a very shy and soft-natured fellow who is still working on building his confidence. When he’s in familiar surroundings with his fellow dogs and people, he is a happy-go-lucky, playful, extremely loving pup, but he is reserved and uncertain in new situations and with new people. And that is why this sweet boy is still with us – he just doesn’t show people his true personality when he is out and about to meet people. It’s sad because Briggs loves his people to pieces once he is comfortable with them. He wants nothing more than to be in your lap and is as loyal and loving as you could ask for in a dog. And we haven’t even mentioned how smart and eager to please he is! Briggs is housebroken and crate trained and would be a wonderful candidate to learn more tricks.

Briggs will likely never be a real social, “out and about” kind of dog but he will make a great homebody to snuggle up with. Ideally Briggs would have a fenced in yard and a dog buddy to play with. He is appropriately submissive with other dogs so he gets along with pretty much everybody. Briggs is a young boy so he will want his playtime every day before snuggling up with you at the end of the day.  

Briggs was rescued from a rural shelter by Pawfect Match in November of 2012. He would have been adopted many times over by now if everyone could see him as we do. Wouldn’t you like to be the one who finally gives this boy his own home? Until someone takes the time to get to know him and allow for him to adjust to his new life, he will continue to wait. And a good homebody like Briggs sure deserves a home to call his own!

About Pawfect Match Rescue and Rahibilitation

About Our Rescue Group...

We are an all volunteer rescue organization devoted to saving dogs from shelters, puppy mills, abusive situations and abondonment in North Carolina. Our members foster, transport and help the rescue efforts with their individual skills, experience, knowledge and expertise, and most importantly, their love of dogs.

At Pawfect Match Rescue we believe that ALL dogs deserve a second chance regardless of their breed or age.

We take a different approach to rescue. We don’t try to save the masses; we just save ONE at a time and make them the best dog they can be by the time they find their forever homes.

By that we mean that we take them into our homes where they live amongst us and our pets and are treated as one of the family, not as a foster dog. We accomplish this by limiting our fosters to one or two per household.

Besides the basics of crate training and house training, we teach them basic obedience, we groom them, feed them a high quality dog food, and last but not least, we shower them with LOVE and attention that hopefully teaches them to trust again and realize that life really IS good..

We’ll never be able to save them all, no matter how many we try to pull and foster. So we believe that the one at a time approach with the extra TLC allows us to really KNOW the dogs and be able to match them more precisely with their new families.

This ends up being a win- win situation for all involved.

Pawfect Match is all volunteer and relys soley on adoption donation fees and public support. Most times our adoption donations do not cover our medical expenses.

Our Adoption Process...

The first step is to fill out our adoption application ,(on our website at under how to adopt) and email it to us, to begin the application process.

Once we receive your application, the second step will be to check your vet reference and talk to your personal references.

The third step is to schedule a home check. This is not to see what kind of a house you live in or how clean or dirty it is. It is simply to see if the “setup” i.e. yard size, fencing, etc. is compatible with your dog of interest. It also allows other animals in your household to meet a potential foster dog and see if they are going to get along.

After all three of these steps are completed there will be an adoption contract to sign and an adoption donation fee. Our fee is are $225.00, plus a $75.00 Training Fee that will be reimbursed once you show proof of completion of a positive reinforcement training course within six months of the adoption. This may seem high, but it is actually a bargain. Your new pet will be fully vetted, spayed or neutered, on heartworm preventive, flea and tick meds, micro-chipped, groomed, and well on his/her way with basic obedience and house training. All of our dogs will be adopted out with a “goody” bag, a collar and leash, nametag, and a free month of pet health insurance.
