Hello, my name is Larry. I am awfully shy. I used to be a feral dog, so I worked really hard at avoiding people. My plans for living a life out on my own were foiled the day I was captured. Now I don’t know quite what to make of living among the human population.


I’m getting used to walking on a leash and living in a neighborhood with a lot of human activity. I’m told that I am quite a handsome dog and that my fur is soft and luxurious to the touch. But I don’t like being petted or approached by strangers. I’m an introvert. I prefer one-on-one interactions with humans that I can trust. Being petted is a relatively new experience for me, which I am warming up to. You can pet me if I trust you.


I would prefer to live in the woods, in a tranquil and peaceful home. I am very soulful and introspective. I like to sit in silent contemplation. I ponder what it means to be ‘a good dog’ and why humans have such loud appliances. I value my alone time, but I also enjoy your quiet company. I like being read to. I feel most comfortable in nature. Long meandering walks along an isolated wooded path are my favorite moments that I cherish.


On the topic of what it means to be a ‘good dog’… I am house-trained. I do not bark. I am completely content being left alone while you go to work. I will not chew your slippers or shoes, although I might “borrow” something of yours and place it next to my bed. I will not go through your trash nor chew your furniture. I appreciate routines.



I am a low-maintenance dog that thrives in nature. I like meeting other dogs, but there is usually a human attached to that dog. I briefly lived with a younger confident female dog and she helped me feel more confident exploring the world. Having a companion dog will definitely help me thrive. Just remind the other dog that I like my alone time, too. I am looking for a human who appreciates my serene nature, enjoys my presence and will provide me with a safe and quiet environment.


Living among humans might not be so bad after all. Contact my foster mom today to learn more about me.

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.
