Brian and his brothers from the “B” boy litter were rescued from a West Virginia shelter with their parents. This boy is the perfect companion – full of spunk but equally content to curl up in his person's lap for a nap! This boy is great with all the 11 dogs he lives with in his foster home always ready to join in play. Toys are great too! Brian is a people dog wanting to be with them no matter where they are. His foster parents will often find him snuggled in their bed when they wake in the morning...he didn’t start there :) Brian loves everyone and will be a great addition to any family. He will need a secure fenced yard and another dog to play with and continue to learn from. If you are looking for a new best friend for you or your children, and have another large dog, Brian just may be your boy!

NYS Registered Rescue # RR102
Our goal is to assess every application on its own merits. Key considerations are: 1) the experience of the applicant with large breed dogs 2) children in the household or regularly visiting the household are ready for a large-breed dog who is a guardian by nature and 3) the sex of other dogs currently residing in the household to avoid same-sex aggression issues. For puppies under six months old, the applicant’s ability to socialize the puppy with older dogs is a priority.
