My story

Brisket is available for rescue groups only due to behavior and history. This actually may be one of the more heartbreaking intake stories we have seen in quiet a while. Meet Brisket, our 7 year old boy who was abandoned on the side of the road in June 2019. Brisket was NOT tethered to anything and was sitting on the curb next to a bag of dog food. Can you just picture that for a second... how terrible for someone to leave him like that, and how heart wrenching that he didn't even move - just sat there - waiting. Brisket is recommended to go home with adults only, and a quiet household due to stranger reactivity. Brisket does well with respectful dogs and is quite playful once he bonds to them. Brisket's friends at the shelter describe him as affectionate, treat motivated and loves belly rubs. Our trainer has been working with Brisket on loose leash walking, food guarding and basic obedience. He is very smart, and has been making great strides, but will still need a place to go with people who have experience with managing guarding and possessive behavior.
If you are a rescue group interested in saving Brisket, please contact us today:
