Barney (aka Bernie) is a sweet and loving dog. Once he trusts you, he'll stay by your side constantly and love you more every day. When you're petting him, he'll give a big show, rolling on his back with a great big smile and wiggling around to let you know just how much he's enjoying it. He is pretty high-energy, but is starting heart worm treatment soon, so he must get used to more rest.  Most times he is content to curl up and go to sleep, but sometimes he gets puppy-like bursts of energy and goes running through the house!

Bernie is a young dog and needs a owner who is willing to help him learn, because he is not totally house-trained and doesn't know commands beyond 'sit.'  He also will chew anything he can get his paws on!  He's a little mouthy, especially when he gets excited, but will back off when you tell him "no."  With some consistent and treat-based training, Barney will reward your patience tenfold.   Contact me today to learn more about sweet Barney!

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.
