Facts about Bremley - Only $45 adoption!!!

  • Breed: Greyhound Mix
  • Color: Tan/Yellow/Fawn - With White
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: A542804
Bremley originally was rescued from a hoarder, and then landed on the euthanasia list at the shelter for showing fear.
He is mostly Greyhound, with a little bit of a larger "fat-head" breed mixed in. He is a tall, lanky, lean boy, like a greyhound. He would do great in a home that has an very active lifestyle. He loves going for rides in the car & exploring! He also does very well as a couch potato. 😊
As he learns not to be scared, his goofy personality has started shining through. He has a very silly dance he does when super happy & will slide around on the carpet on his back just to be silly. He has not shown interest in toys, but a peanut butter-filled Kong will get several minutes of licking - no chewing. He ignores chew toys completely.. He likes to cuddle with blankets. He loves attention (petting, scratches, grooming) & is glad to ask for love. He generally tries to avoid getting wet though.
He is eager to learn & is treat motivated. Which makes him easy to train. He likes positive attention just as much as treats. He has learned "kennel", "stay", "come", "quiet" & is learning "down" & "lay down". He responds well to sight cues & is very capable of learning sign language signals. He likes to hug his humans & doesn't realize he's too big for this, LOL!
He tends to only obey those who are strongly dominant, and has displayed some territorial tendencies. This is great for those who want a loyal & protective dog. However, he is eager to step in as alpha if he isn't receiving clear leadership. Because of this, he is not good for a home with children under high school age.
He is house-trained & crate trained. He has displayed moderate separation anxiety when kenneled alone in the house. Due to his size, a sturdy, safe kennel is necessary.
For food, he is a lean eater. He eats 2-2.5 cups of dry food per day & stops on his own when full.
Bremley would do very well as a running or hiking buddy - he is getting the hang of a leash, and tends to naturally heel & fall into rhythm. He also waits to pee until he needs to go & is able to keep focus on the exercise.

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.

About Safe Haven Animal Rescue of AZ

About Our Rescue Group...

or Click here to fill out our online Adoption Application.

Safe Haven Animal Rescue of AZ is a small no-kill animal rescue. Safe Haven's main focus is to save dogs & cats from certain death by taking pets off the euthanasia list at kill shelters. We do not take in owner surrenders.

With the exception of adopting straight off the euthanasia list through the new "E-list Adoption Program", we stop taking in (fostering) new pets around May, work on getting the remaining pets that are here adopted, take a much needed summer break, then start taking in new pets again in the Fall.

Safe Haven is run by volunteers who work in their free time, outside of their regular jobs, in order to help these innocent animals. Please be respectful of that.

Safe Haven also plans to work to get the laws changed in AZ to stop cruelty, & also educate the public so that overpopulation is never again a reason that an animal is killed.

Safe Haven was started because Maricopa County has the second highest kill rate in the whole country for killing sweet, loving, adoptable pets for no other reason than pet overpopulation. With rates increasing as the economy drops. We could no longer stand by & watch!

Safe Haven is working on several new programs. So our animal intake is minimal right now. Please bear with us!

Goals for this year:

- Apply for a name change. We are getting confused with other rescues who also have "Safe Haven" in their names. A name change will also allow us to expand & set up childrens' programs.

- We are currently working to fix up a new property, where we will be able to expand & take in more pets.

- Expand our volunteer programs.

- Set up an ongoing yard sale to raise money to help pay all the bills!

- There will also be 2 new food programs for:

1: Free pet food for low income families who are struggling to feed their pets. (This will also include farm animals...)

2: Free regular food for low income families who are struggling to feed their children.

Our Adoption Process...

You'll notice our adoptions fees are much lower than other rescues. Adoption fees are posted in the Title & also in the body of the pets adoption profile. Lower adoption fees are only because our main concern is finding a good home, & not recouping all the costs we have incurred to save that pet. The more homes we find, the more we can save!
