Meet An Adoptable Dog
Breed: Labrador Retriever / German Shepherd Dog / Mixed (long coat)
Weight: 62 lbs
Height: 24 in
Estimated Birthdate: 1/2/2010
Fence Needed: Yes
Location: Dreamweaver Farms in Pacolet, SC
Reason for being in rescue: Lovingly surrendered by owners
Special Needs: Brielle had surgery in February 2020 to remove some masses around her anus. She'd experienced challenges going to the bathroom that resulted in her rectum protruding. Brielle has recovered and is now ready for a home with a very experienced owner.
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. She is comfortable by herself and would be fine with another dog in the home. Brielle feels safe in her crate and needs to know she will always have a spot of her own. Brielle will trust the right people in her own way and her own time. She would like an owner who can meet her on her level and let her know the world is safe. Brielle will not be adopted to a first time dog owner or into a home with children under 10. Her ideal home has experience with timid dogs and has another dog that Brielle can continue to learn from.
What is my personality like: Brielle arrived in rescue 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 rescue 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.
Brielle has come a long way since she first came to us. She is sweet and trusts the people she is with everyday. 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. 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 is ready for a home of her own after 3 years of learning humans are good.
How do I act when I first meet new people: Cautious but warms up
Tips and Tidbits: Brielle's estimated birthday is 01/02/2010
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.
