Hello! My name is Briles. I was born in about July 2014 and I weigh about 55 pounds. I'm a pretty low energy boy. My breed mix is a bit of a mystery! Maybe some hound, Labrador, Pit Bull or Staffordshire Terrier? Who knows?

I’m good with some dogs but don’t like to share my food or toys. I would be fine in a home with my friend Ashley. We used to live together in the woods. She’s up for adoption through Corridor Rescue too. I don’t care for cats.

The best thing that happened recently is I got to go into a board-and-train program to learn manners and hopefully make someone want to take me home!
My former foster mom says I do a few cute things that will make you fall in love with me, like splashing in the water and waddling my chubby little self like a hippo when I run. (I love to eat and am currently working on sharing my food, treats, and toys. I would rather have them all for myself!)

Before the nice people at Corridor Rescue saved me from living in the woods, I had never been on a leash, but I like it and walk very nicely. Like I said, I love treats and I'll take those very gently out of your hands. I'm smart, they tell me! I will let you rub my belly for as long as you would like, or better yet scratch my head and ears. I'll take a little time to get to know and trust my new family, but please know that I want one so badly. I don't need a big house or a big yard, just a little space, a leash for walks, and LOTS of love.

Briles’ adoption fee of $200 covers training, spay/neuter, microchip and current vaccines.

**This dog is with Corridor Rescue in Houston, Texas but is available for transport to most major US and Canadian cities via United Airlines PetSafe for an additional $275. A customs fee may apply at Canadian airports. Ground transportation to Colorado is available for $75, and several locations in the northeastern US for $175.

Please apply to foster or adopt online at www.corridorrescue.org under More Information. Direct inquiries to: adopt@corridorrescue.org.

Thank you for considering a rescued former street dog for your next family member!

About Corridor Rescue Inc. - Pittsburgh Transports

About Our Rescue Group...

Corridor Rescue Inc. is an all breed 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable animal rescue organization on a mission. A mission of mercy, rescue and awareness. A mission to save lives and correct an injustice to animals who have been thrown away and left, often times injured and starving, to fend for themselves in the Hwy 59 and Little York area of Houston - apparently the dividing line for the county and city Animal Control. Its about a mile strip of road dubbed the "Corridor of Cruelty". Veer off to the left or right along any point and see the same everywhere - abandoned and starving dogs, in pain and suffering. Here, trash and animals are discarded without thought on a regular basis. We're not talking about a handful of animals, but hundreds of physically and emotionally damaged animals in the fight of their lives to simply survive another day.

Started by one person, Corridor Rescue has grown its team of volunteers, from all walks of life, united in an effort to help this community of orphaned animals in desperate need of help. We work to rescue hard to capture dogs and cats; to rescue and rehabilitate diseased and injured dogs; to facilitate the rescue of animals mainly from the Corridor of Cruelty but also from other areas of Houston; to educate about spay/neuter and animal cruelty laws.

Success happens everyday yet we know that our fight is far from over

Our Adoption Process...

We require all potential adopters to complete our pre-adoption application. Please contact corridorrescue@gmail.com with inquiries, or visit our website to fill out our online adoption application - www.corridorrescue.org

After review of your application, a rescue volunteer will contact you. We will check veterinary references on all current pets or any that you have had in the past 3 years. We conduct a home visit by appointment to meet family members, other pets, and to evaluate home safety conditions. If we feel the potential adoption is a good match for the family and the pet, then we proceed with placing the animal on a "trial adoption". We want to be sure that your new pet is right for you!
