Bridgey Poo (as we lovingly refer to her as) has been with us for quite some time. She has made a ton of progress. All she wants in life is to be next to her people, including kids. Snuggles and following you around are her favorite activities. She's happy to accompany you throughout household activities or car rides. She does not like being crated but she can be left alone in the house now (with practice) for periods without being destructive. She is house-trained. She knows sit and down and is eager to please. She is AMAZING with children -- totally trustworthy even with very young kids. You can pull her tail or smush her face of lay on top of her and she doesn't bat an eyelash. She is NOT mouthy. She will be such a sweet companion. Brigid does not do well meeting new dogs. She is very leash reactive and will not be a dog-park dog. She is PACK ORIENTED. She loves the dogs in her foster home. She can also get along with new dogs but she needs a SLOW pack introduction. Potential adopters with other dogs big or small should know that Bridgey Poo LOVES other dogs but it will take her a little bit to accept new dogs. It could be 15 minutes or it could be a couple days. She currently lives with two other dogs and goes to a dog-friendly workplace with about 10 other dogs. She gets along with all of these dogs but does not ever meet dogs appropriately. She needs to understand they are part of her pack before she accepts them.

  • Wonderful with kids of all ages
  • House trained
  • Eager to please and super snuggly

Brigid's Story: This estimated 3 year old female Boxer Pit mix was a stray in San Bernadino who ended up at high-kill Devore animal shelter. (Our vet thinks she is closer to 1 year old based on her teeth.) She was put on the euthanasia list when she came down with kennel cough, so we pulled her... back in September! She was not spayed due to her upper respiratory infection and when she arrived we quickly saw she was ... SURPRISE!!! Pregnant. VERY! After giving birth she ended up with a very serious infection which required separating her from pups so she could get the veterinary care she needed. She had to have her mammary gland removed and was in intensive medical care for some time. This was likely traumatic for her and may explain some of her separation anxiety and excited/reactive behavior around other dogs. We are eager to find Brigid a wonderful home to call her own. She has been through a lot so she will need a patient loving and supportive family. Adoption Info: Brigid's adoption fee of $375 includes her spay, all vaccinations (Rabies, DPPV, Bordetella) deworming, microchipping and transport from California to Seattle. Brigid's actual veterinary costs have far exceeded her adoption fee (by about 10x) and any donations to her care are greatly appreciated.
