Hello, My name is Dora. I have a big heart on my right shoulder. My real heart grows bigger and bigger with every positive interaction I have with people. I am a lovely lady with beautiful almond shaped eyes, soft fur and velvety ears that perfectly frame my face. For all those that know me, I am quick to greet them with a jubilant happy dance. I am very affectionate and love to give kisses. Physical activity is important to me. A home with a secure yard would be ideal. Going on hikes is quite an enjoyable experience and my favorite activity. I am well-behaved in the car.

Don’t let my pretty face fool you; I’m a tough cookie, too. Staff remind me that I don’t always have to act so tough. I don’t like it when people reach for me or when dogs approach me directly.  I prefer a formal introduction. I like my personal space, after all. On walks, staff and volunteers use positive reinforcement to encourage me to ignore strangers and other dogs. Ever eager to please, I have made great improvements.  I need someone willing to continue to use positive reinforcement. Building on the skills that I have already learned will help us to bond easily. Not only am I a people-pleaser, but I am also treat-motivated.  Feel free to ask our behavioral team for some great training tips and tricks.

I am very protective and alert to intruders. At the adoption center I practice this by keeping strangers away from my run.  Staff and volunteer friends tell me that that is not the best way to make new friends and meet the love of my life. Ask to meet me in the play yard. I play nice if I make your acquaintance with a proper introduction. Once I get to know you, I am incredibly loyal and affectionate.

My friends at Brother Wolf have made me part of the One-Year Sponsorship club, this means that my adoption fee is waived, and for one year after my adoption date Brother Wolf will provide food, vet care through a partner vet, and behavior support!

So, now that you know a little about me... let’s go out and play; we have many hiking trails to explore together!

All Brother Wolf animals are spayed/neutered, microchipped, and up-to-date on vaccinations before adoption (if species appropriate).
Application and counseling is required prior to all adoptions.

Individuals interested in adopting a puppy are STRONGLY encouraged to download and read this FREE ebook. Even if you've raised puppies in the past, this is an invaluable resource to help make your new addition successful!

Please note that visual breed identification of companion animals has been proven to be unreliable, so for most of our animals we provide a best guess at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each of our animals as an individual and do our best to describe and place pets based on personality not breed label.

About Brother Wolf Animal Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Brother Wolf Animal Rescue is known for their excellence in matching people with the best dog or cat that would suit their lifestyle. Today we are proud to have the largest NO-KILL shelter in Asheville. Brother Wolf Animal Rescue was established in 2006. We started off as a very small group of people, taking dogs and cats from gassing shelters in GA. We found wonderful homes for these animals but realized while we were saving these particular animals, we had a much bigger problem in our community that we needed to face. Perfectly healthy, highly adoptable animals in our community are being euthanized every day. Rescued pets are not broken or damaged goods. They are wonderful animals who have ended up homeless through no fault of their own.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our facility is located at 31 Glendale Avenue in Asheville, off Swannanoa River Rd, 1/2 mile from Lowe's. Open every day.

Our Adoption Process...

All adoptions will require a contract and discussions with one of our adoption counselors. Based on the needs of the particular animal, we reserve the right to require a home visit at the discretion of the adoption counselor. All our animals will be altered before adoption and up-to-date on standard vaccinations. We do collect an adoption fee.
