Can't. Stand. The. Cuteness.
Seriously?? This dog is SO freakin cute!! He's big, beefy and such a sweetie - built like a linebacker :) Briggs looks like an American Bully, a blend of bulldog and pit bull. He's got bulldog nubs for teeth and a horrible hack job on his ears (which resulted in chronic ear problems causing lots of pain - lame). Briggs is a cool blue tricolor, and his former owner abandoned him at the shelter saying he was too much energy. YA RIGHT. This dog is anything but. :)
We think Briggs is around 3+ years and he weighs 80ish pounds. He came to us in bedraggled shape but with clean living, nutritious food and supplements, his coat has returned to full shiny health. Like most of the young dogs we get in rescue, they were raised with no boundaries by their original owners. Everyone wants a cute puppy and then they fail to provide structure and guidance. For Briggs, it would've cost him his life at the OC shelter but thankfully we grabbed him at the last minute. Briggs has been learning to trust people again while working on his manners and behavior. He's come far in the very skilled care of one of our best foster homes. We saw the potential in this stocky gem of a dog and just needed the right people to help him realize it. Briggs gets along great with pretty much all other dogs and really enjoys playtime with well matched companions. He loves belly rubs, is super loyal, and as you might imagine he's something of a people magnet. Good thing he loooooves the attention!!
Beefcake Briggs is looking for a forever family (no kids) with an above average understanding of dogs; a family who lives a leadership lifestyle with your well mannered animals. He needs people willing to set boundaries - for life, not just a few months - in a quieter child free home environment. A well matched, calm adult companion dog might be nice but not necessary for this people lover. He's not cat tolerant. Briggs has been learning that Nothing In Life Is Free - NILIF. This lifestyle philosophy will help Briggs continue to excel in his forever future with YOU :) He's working on not jumping up when he gets excited and although he's doing super, let's be honest. This is a tough habit to break! Caution: May give LOTS of kisses!
Check out Briggs playing at daycare :)
