Bran is a very sweet and affectionate 5 old neutered, male dog. He looks like a stocky, miniature Broadhead Black Lab puppy mix. He weighs around 24 lbs. He is very playful and loves to run. He adores humans and just wants to please. If you treat him with respect and work with him to reinforce what you want him to do, he will learn quickly. Thanks to Bran's temporary fosters, he is now trained to sit and wait. Before he spent two weeks with them, he only knew sit but wouldn't stay or wait. Bran is such a good boy who has a heart to learn. He really wants to please humans. He is also now house trained! He really does well with positive dog training, so we would recommend taking him to a dog training class as he would really enjoy it and would do very well. We also learned in his temporary foster home, that very energetic young children startle him. While he loves kids, he would do best in a home with calmer, older children. Bran is back at our shelter now, and is hoping for a new foster home, or an adoptive home.
Note: Due to Bran's energetic nature, he needs a lot of outside play time. We do not recommend him for apartment life. Someone with a fenced in back yard would be best. He would probably also enjoy being an only dog. He does get along fine with cats, and most dogs. However, larger dogs tend to intimidate him and he tries to act tough around them.
Bran is neutered, heartworm negative and on the Proheart injection, and microchipped. His adoption fee is now reduced to only $75.00, as we reduced his fee again because he has been with our rescue for so long. We can not save more dogs when we are full of dogs that keep getting overlooked for adoption. Bran is in need of either an adoption home, or a foster home. If interested in adopting or fostering Bran, please fill out our prescreening application. You can find out more about our adoption process and download our application from our website: http://acadianahumane.org/catblogger/view-our-adoptable-pets/ If you are with a no-kill rescue we will consider transferring him to your facility so that we can free up space here as we are currently overwhelmed, and to give Bran an opportunity to be adopted since he is being overlooked here in Louisiana.
