Shadow actually likes Pedigree treats better than magic hot dogs!  He's smart, mellow, sweet and good with cats.  Shadow waits for my neighbor's cat to come up to the fence and they stare at each other.  The cat of mine that is allowed outside goes up to Shadow and rubs up against him. The two stand quietly and then go on about their business. 

Shadow is perfectly house-trained and walks very well on leash.  He knows to sit still while I put on his leash and does not pull while walking, but is always out front.  Even so, he would be perfectly happy as a couch potato.  He thinks he is a lap dog, but at 84 pounds he is too big for most laps!  So, Shadow has finally learned to lay beside me on the couch.  When Shadow is bored, he rearranges the furniture in his doggie room.  I have one chair he can pull or push around, so he does, now and then.  And he's always pulling his bed around and putting different toys or blankets on it.  I, however, must put the chairs and other things back where they belong after I wash or sweep the floor.  If I don't, it's good for about 4 minutes of eye-rolling, panting and circling.  Then he settles down.

Shadow has arthritis in his hips, but on his medicine (which he swallows like a Hoover), he seems pain-free and races up and down the hill in my yard.  He loves to be brushed down his back, over his hips and down his thighs.

Right now Shadow is afraid of cars, but we are working on that.  Otherwise he is a hoot.  If he can overcome his fear of cars, he'll make someone a wonderful pet.

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.
