Braver would love to lay on the couch or in your bed and cuddle with you! I have trained him to stay off my bed, but he would love to be there. He’s a sweet boy who learns quickly. He has even started learning to play fetch from watching my Labrador. He is playful and loves to run just for the sake of running, so would need a yard to accommodate that.
He rides well in a car and is housetrained. He does well on a leash unless he sees a rabbit or cat, or sometimes another dog, so you must be prepared to keep a firm hold on the leash at a moment's notice. He may be best in a home without other animals, or at most another dog if you can firmly let him know that he isn’t king and the other dog gets your love and affection to. It would take a proper introduction as it did with my Lab – he gets along great with her, but I did have to take that aforementioned firm hand with him.
Braver would make somebody a great companion. Please consider this sweet, smart boy.
How do I adopt?
If you are interested in adopting from TSBR - please review our adoption process. We require an application and home visit prior to being considered for adoption.
TSBR is a foster based rescue program and does not have a shelter or facility. Only approved adopters may meet our dogs outside of a public event.
TSBR Minimum Adoption Fees:
Texas Sporting Breed Rescue, Inc. is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. We do not receive government funding and therefore rely heavily on our adoption fees, fundraising efforts, and generous supporters. Our fees are directly linked to our costs to care for dogs in our program.
*Adoption fees are subject to change as deemed necessary by TSBR. Each adoption, and the care an individual dog receives is subject to change and is at the discretion of our Chair of Animal Welfare. Our website does not bind TSBR legally, but is merely a guide. The signed adoption contract with each adoption is legally binding. Adoption fees must be paid by cash, check, money order, bank check, or credit card (additional fees apply for use of credit card).
Our minimum adoption fees are directly linked to our costs to care for dogs in our program.
Puppies (8 months of age and younger)
**If, at the time of adoption, your dog or puppy has not been spayed/neutered (based on recommendation by TSBR Veterinarian), you are required to sign a spay/neuter agreement and will be responsible for the spay/neuter. Our adoption contract requires that all dogs (or puppies) be spayed/neutered within one month of adoption, or when age appropriate. You are asked to notify us when and by who this surgery will be performed. Our volunteers will verify that the dog has been spayed/neutered. If you fail to spay/neuter, as outlined in the adoption contract you signed, our organization will take appropriate measures to reclaim the dog.
