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 is a low slung, stubby wide 80 pounder (ya, he's solid!) with a bad hack job on his poor ears. He recently underwent total ear canal ablation (TECA) surgery and is officially deaf. After many many months of trying to treat and repair his swollen and constantly infected canals and avoid surgery, we made the difficult decision that this truly would be the best outcome for a happier future for our happy hippo. He's recovering nicely in his foster home and oh so ready to pack his bags for his Forever Home!

We think Briggs is almost 5 and a mature, easy going, well behaved adult. He came to us in bedraggled shape and with poor manners after running out of time at the OC shelter. With clean living, nutritious food and beneficial supplements, his coat is returned to a beautiful healthy blue tricolor. Briggs spent several months perfecting his skills and behavior (with Peticularly Perfect - North San Diego Pet Care​'s founder/owner) and growing into the very special boy who captured his foster mom's heart. She says he's one of her favorite foster dogs of all time! What a compliment to the hippo and all thanks to her dedication and efforts. Briggs gets along great with dogs of all sizes and really enjoys playtime with pals. 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!! His tail wags his whole body in greeting lol.

Beefcake Briggs is looking for a forever family 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 companion dog or few might be nice but not necessary for this people lover. He's looking for a feline free home, preferably with a backyard to enjoy. 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 it's a tough habit to break, he's really excelling. Oh, and be prepared for LOTS of kisses!

About Wagging Dog Rescue - Los Angeles Chapter

About Our Rescue Group...

Wagging Dog Rescue is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization striving to help as many dogs as possible get through Southern California's shelters and find the perfect forever family. We are an all volunteer group of passionate animal advocates, owners and rescuers dedicated to improving animal welfare and restoring the unwanted family pet to his rightful place in a responsible home. All of our adoptable dogs are in a private foster home with a loving caregiver who guides them through their transition from a stressful past to a permanent and well-deserved future. We promote responsible pet ownership, firm leadership, spay and neuter... and most of all, ADOPTION.

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption process begins with an application (available for download here - http://waggingdog.org/resources/) followed by a phone interview and home visit. If other pets are in the home, we will manage dog introductions. Our adoption fees vary and will include spay/neuter, vaccinations, and microchip. In most cases our Dogs are also housebroken and crate trained with basic obedience skills. Prospective pet parents must be at least 21 years old. Adoption agreement will be required.
