You can see from my pictures that I'm a gorgeous boy, and guess what else - I'm also very smart.  At just ten months old I already know:  sit, down, wait, out, up, off and kennel up. In my former home I slept in my crate at night or when no one was home in order to keep me safe. I'm also house-trained to use a dog door. I had a fenced-in yard' but a four foot fence proved not to be high enough to keep me from jumping over to engage in a game of chase with the neighbor's cat when it came around!
 
I am a friendly and playful guy, but I have a sensitive side also. I can be nervous about meeting new dogs, so I may be particular about dogs with whom I would be willing to socialize. I prefer playing with smaller, polite, playful dogs that won't sniff me too much.  I can also be nervous with the activity of children, so I would prefer a home with adults only, or at least children over 10. 
 
I'm quite the outdoorsman and would love the opportunity to show you around our beautiful mountains.  Even at my young age, I consider myself an experienced hiker and have conquered many peaks in our area that many only dream of scaling. In addition, I enjoy playing with water, chewing on sticks, car rides and walks with a harness and leash.  Although I enjoy being active outdoors, I sure can curl up and nap on the couch all afternoon, play or eat a Kong filled with peanut butter or kale and blueberries (I love kale and blueberries!). Please visit me at the adoption center so you can see for yourself what a great dog I am!

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.
