PLEASE NOTE: All of the pets at Safe Haven receive basic training when they come here. All adopters will be given a list of words that your new pet knows at the time of adoption. What each pet learns depends on how much time I have had to work with them, & if that pet has any additional issues that need to be focused on first. The pets here are always improving.
Age/Birthday: 3 yrs
Weight at last Vet visit: 60 lbs - perfect weight
Cats: Unknown but not likely
Small Dogs: Unknown but unlikely
***NOTE: He is mostly Greyhound - a sight hunter bred for stamina. His instinct when seeing a small animal is to GET IT. He is bred to have tunnel vision for that goal. Small pets could possibly be at risk with any Greyhound in the home.
Large Dogs: Maybe - Ignores large dogs on walks, but may do very well with another dog of similar or larger size.
Kids: Bremley gets territorial and guards his resources which makes him not suitable for young kids that can not take the leadership role.
Men: He takes a little longer to warm up, seems OK with dominant men, but not with shy or fearful men.
Women: He really likes women, especially dominant women.
Strangers: He is curious about strangers, but has growled at some guests.
Food: He's a good eater. He eats light for his size, stops when full. Even with food available all day, he tends to eat only once per day.
Crate Trained: He goes in on command, sometimes whines, but generally quiet. He has had a handful of accidents when scared or crated for more than a couple of hours. He is doing much better than normal for his history.
House Trained: Yes, but doesn't ask to be let out *yet*. He goes on his own w/door left open & would likely easily learn to use a doggie door.
Leash Trained: Currently working on this. He's about halfway there. He doesn't run off.
Car: He loves going for car rides! Likes the window, but hasn't decided if he's going to hang his head out or not. He also likes to sit on the floorboard. Tends to sit, not lay on the seat or floor.
Other issues: Bremley needs all people in the household to be THE BOSS. He will dominate anyone who is fearful. He is very intuitive, sweet, fun, & obedient as long as he knows he's at the bottom of the pecking order.

ADOPTING A CAT OR DOG IS UP TO A 20 YEAR COMMITMENT! THEY ARE NOT OBJECTS THAT YOU CAN GET RID OF WHEN THEY BECOME INCONVENIENT. THEY ARE INNOCENT LIVING, BREATHING ANIMALS WITH FEELINGS THAT DEPEND ON YOU TO TAKE CARE OF THEM. IF YOU ARE NOT WILLING TO TAKE CARE OF, LOVE, & PAY FOR EVERYTHING THIS PET NEEDS FOR UP TO 20 YEARS, THEN PLEASE DO NOT ASK FOR AN APPLICATION.
* Safe Haven STRONGLY believes that collars should only be used as decoration or to hold the ID tag. A dog can slip out of collar. Which becomes a problem if your dog gets lost, or you are trying to restrain your dog, & it comes off. Also, attaching a leash to a collar puts pressure on the neck, which is one of the most sensitive areas of the body, & could hurt them. For these reasons, Safe Haven includes a harness with every dog adoption to ensure the safety of the dog, as a harness is more expensive than a collar & some adopters will not buy them for this reason. A harness distributes the weight on the chest & shoulders. It also has a handle on the back that you can grab if need be, without hurting your pet (EX: Dog falls off your boat, just grab the handle & pull your pet back in with no harm done. With a collar, you would have to strangle your dog when pulling your dog in). Also, it is very hard for a dog to slip out of a harness when properly fitted. So it is much easier to restrain them.
Q: Is this pet still available?
A: Updates are posted in the original post on the Facebook page for Safe Haven Animal Rescue of AZ at https://www.facebook.com/groups/1405138936478168/ . It will say the status in all caps at the very top of the pets post. Once on the Facebook page, type the pets name in the search box in the upper right corner to easily pull up all the posts on that pet.
Q: I don't see a phone #. Will someone please call me?
A: Everything needed is online. I have found that online is the most efficient way to get all the work done. In the past, when I posted my #, my phone rang off the hook all day. So I spent the whole day on the phone, with not much work to show for it at the end of the day. Again, everything needed is online.
Q: How do I adopt this pet?
A: Your first step is to fill out an application. http://www.adoptapet.com/Safe-Haven/adoption-application/
Q: Can I adopt if I live out of state?
A: Out of state adoptions are welcome. Additional fee applies. Fees start at $195 for transport + the adoption fee. All transported pets come with a collar with ID attached, harness, and leash. Plus all the other things listed above that regularly come with adoptions. If it is a long trip, they may come with a carrier with padding, health certificate, bowls, and of course food for the trip. It just depends on the pet, and the mode of transportation.
