Brick has been a very popular boy while in our care. He is a very sweet boy and loves attention but has been notorious for getting into trouble and eating things he should not. In fact, from the age of 11 weeks old until now (11 months old) he has been in the hospital 5x for eating things he should not. This is the reason he was surrendered into our care. During this time, it has come to our attention that Brick has displayed some pretty severe resource guarding and would become aggressive when trying to take high value items.
For this issue, Brick went into a 4 week board and train program with Jay’s K-9 Universe. He did incredibly well and is continuing his training in his foster care and continuing to thrive.
We want to be super clear that a board and train program does not “cure” a dogs resource guarding behavior or any behavior for that matter. Brick did not come back as a totally new dog but rather a very well managed/trained dog that has the structure to succeed with guarding issues. His future adopters MUST continue with structure and training or Brick will 100% fall back into his old ways. Because of this future adopters MUST go into training with Brick. There are no exceptions to this and will be in his adoption contract. He has done incredibly well with balance training.
So a little about Brick. He is dog friendly and enjoys playing with other dogs. He goes to daycare weekly and we feel would thrive with another playful active dog in the home. Although Brick is very sweet with all children, he must go to a home with children 16 and older due to his resource guarding issues. Brick cannot go to a home with cats. Brick is potty trained, crate trained, knows basic commands such as sit, paw, down, place and stay. He is getting much better with his leash walking.
Future adopters will need to “Brick Proof” their house. This means no high value items laying around the house such as bones laying around (nylabones are ok), trash cans are unable to get into, food, treats etc not left out or on the counter where he can jump up and get to.
We understand this is a big ask and we are laying it on thick but if we don’t, we feel like we are doing absolutely no service to Brick as we DO NOT want him getting returned. Brick will be a big commitment but with that said he is totally worth it and really is the sweetest boy.
Brick is neutered, given all age appropriate vaccines, heartworm negative, on heartworm and flea and tick prevention.

Welcome our sweet girl, Rein into the rescue. Rein comes from a pretty bad past but she is trying her best to not let that define her. Rein was found tied to a basement that was exposed to the outdoor elements. Her owner decided to surrender her and we brought her in immediately. Rein is sweet but shy. This is understandable and we are working with her to build confidence and bring her out of her shell. Because of her abusive past, we are recommending children over the age of 10 and a quiet home.
Rein is crate trained, potty trained, dog friendly, cat friendly AND is fosters with chickens and does GREAT! She was failed so badly before but we promised Rein she will live a life of love here on out. Can you show Rein a life of love?
Rein will be spayed, microchipped, given all age appropriate vaccinations, heartworm tested, on heartworm and flea and tick prevention prior to adoption.

Welcome Millie! Millie came to us from South Carolina. Millie is a very sweet pup but very shy. Her fosters have been working hard to bring her out of her shell with strangers and she has been doing great! Millie is super dog friendly and comes out of her shell around other dogs. Because of this Millie must go to a home with other confident playful dogs in the home. Millie is crate trained and almost potty trained. She still has accidents here and there. Millie is also cat friendly! She does well with children but adopters should know she is a little mouthy (normal puppy stuff). So older kids may be best for Millie till she grows out of this behavior.
Millie is spayed, microchipped, given all age appropriate vaccinations, on heartworm and flea and tick prevention.

Welcome baby Pint of the Beer Baby crew. Pint and his siblings were found living in a tailer outside in Georgia where conditions were not safe. The beer babies made a trip up north and came to us. Pint is doing great with potty training and crate training. Pint is super dog friendly and does well with cats.
Pint is the runt of the litter and came to us with a leg deformity. He is missing bones in his foot. He has consulted with a few orthopedic surgeons and will be having a leg amputation. We will be holding applications on Pint until his orthopedic issues are situated.
