My story

Bramble wants nothing more than a home - well, except maybe a stop through the P. Terry's drive-thru on the way there for a burger and fries! His former foster Ally said "he really loves to cuddle!" He loves to give his favorite people a smooch if they are open to it. He can be a very affectionate boy and is just such a love.

Bramble is one of those rare energy-matchers. He mirrors whatever level of energy you give off, the perfect balance of playtime and chilling out. He is a lover of toys and will happily show you his best toy tossing skills. Bramble also loves cooling off in the pool, keeping a huge smile on his face the whole time!

Bramble understands all of the basic rules of being a pup in a house. His current fosters report that he is perfectly house trained. He can get lonely without his favorite people around but is learning to get used to time alone. He is overall a pretty easy boy to have as a sidekick.
