Meet An Adoptable Dog
Breed: Labrador Retriever / German Shepherd Dog (long coat)
Weight: 45.4 lb
Height: About 24 in at the shoulder
Estimated Birthdate: 1/2/2010
Location: Dreamweaver Farms, Pacolet SC
Reason for being in rescue: Released by previous owner because they were relocating to a new place
Special Needs: none noted
What kind of home would be best for me: Brielle needs a quiet, more reserved home with owners that have a soft spot for timid dogs. Brielle is reportedly a 3rd generation shepadoodle - german shepherd and standard poodle. But since she looks so much more like a labrador retriever, we've put that breed instead. Brielle reportedly has some standard poodle in her but we don't see much and she does shed. She is good with other dogs and fine with cats.
What is my personality like: Brielle came to the farm as an owner release with a few others. From day one she has always been timid and scared while her other siblings have come out of their shells and found homes. Brielle is the type of dog that will need plenty of one on one time to get her where she needs to be in life. Everyone at the farm has worked with her and she will now take treats out of our hands, but she could really use help in a permanent home to help her grow. She has great potential with a sweet and gentle nature and just needs a special person to help her along her way.
How do I act when I first meet new people: Cautious but warms up
Tips and Tidbits: Update 10/05/17- Brielle has come a long way since she first came to us. She is sweet and will allow some love from people she is with everyday. She wants to trust people and find a forever home, but she just needs time and patience. She does perfectly fine with all dogs,and they help her relax and learn that we people are not so bad. Brielle needs an understanding human that has a soft spot for dogs with troubled souls.
House trained: Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained. A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours. We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule.
Please note - we do not ship or transport our dogs. If you are interested in adopting a dog, take a look at the distance between the dog's location and your location and make sure you are able to make the trip.
Thank you for your interest in a dog who needs a new home. This description contains all that we currently know about this dog. We have no perfect dogs - but many of our dogs have proven to be perfect for a certain someone. We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture. When screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home. You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, age, temperament, personality, etc. Our goal is to match you with the best possible pet for you and your home. We want to create furever families.
