Hello, my name is Bradley.
I joined Ruff Start Rescue from a local shelter and while I am super happy to be in a home, I am still getting used to the new people, places and sounds.
I am looking for a very special family! One who will be patient with me and will help me to overcome my fears.
The ideal family for me would have another dog, would have a quiet environment, a fenced in yard, and would continue slow and proper socialization as I come out of my shell. Plus, I just love other dogs. I am very smart when it comes to playing, and have never met a dog that I don't like.
My foster mom has been really helpful to me! She is very enthusiastic about my accomplishments and when I bravely conquer one of my fears. When she gets excited, I get excited and we have a big celebration. This has made me proud and more eager to try new things.
I am learning to play and trust people. I have gotten more comfortable about approaching her for pets and kisses. I'm even brave enough to snuggle with her at bedtime.
I have amazing leash manners, and never pull. I am very in tune with my humans and always know where they are.
Could you be the family I've been waiting for? Could I be the dog you've be searching for? If so, I would love to meet you!
If you are interested in me, please fill out an adoption application at www.ruffstartrescue.org. An adoption application is the best way to show your interest in an animal. Once we receive your application, a placement coordinator will be in contact with you as soon as possible.
Please check out our website, www.ruffstartrescue.org for more details and additional pictures on any of our animals!
All Ruff Start dogs and cats are spayed/neutered, up to date on age appropriate vaccines, microchipped, dewormed, and on monthly flea/tick and heartworm prevention (dogs) as well as heartworm tested (dogs).
