Hello, my name is Handsome Harry! I was just given up by a backyard breeder and I am looking forward to being a family dog. I am getting along fine with the other dogs in my home but I really like people. Other than being big enough to maybe knock very little kids over, I am doing very well with kids too. Since I wasn’t a family dog, I am working on potty training. I was recently fixed but am still doing some marking which will hopefully improve over the next few weeks. I am also having some house accidents but seem to be learning that is not a good thing. Though I am strong, I have walked pretty nicely on a leash, starting out perky but not pulling, and getting my mosey around on by the end. My appetite is good and I scarf my food quickly. All the dogs in my house eat separately but I certainly don’t get aggressive at meal times. I’m good in a bath, but not too sure about nail clipping. Ear cleaning is ok too, luckily, because I need special cleaner and real regular ear care. I will probably always struggle to keep infection at bay due to thickened ear canals from years of untreated infection. I am also getting a dental cleaning shortly. I like to play with toys and foster mom is trying to get me to chase a ball. Not sure why though, she does so well chasing it on her own. I have been well behaved in the house, and clearly was not familiar with furniture. I like my dog beds on the floor though I will come sit by you for a pat or snuggle. I like to bounce around my big backyard but I need someone to praise my potty skills so I know to go outside. I am a good sleeper at night and send myself to bed, where I stay until morning. I’m not much of a barker and am rather quiet for a bigger dog. I need a little work through no fault of my own, but I am really a special find for someone lucky to discover.
I will be looking for a family soon as long as there are no unexpected surprises at my vet visit so if you need a big buddy, fill out that adoption form here!

Hi, my name is Buddy and I’m a fun guy. My previous family could no longer care for me so I came to BBR and I like it here! I have a great foster family and they are helping me feel so much better. My skin was really irritated from allergies, but I’ve already had a soothing bath and the vet gave me medication to make me feel even better. I’m an easy going and happy guy. I still like to play with toys and I enjoy going for walks. My legs are a little twisty but that doesn’t slow me down. My foster family calls me “Perfect!”

Hello, my name is Houston! I was turned over to a shelter because sadly my human was about to be homeless. The shelter asked BBR to take me in so I could have a better chance of finding a home of my own, plus the shelter environment was stressful for me. I have lived with dogs, cats and kids just fine but I can get protective of my food and toys towards other dogs. My new foster mom says I have been more interested in the companionship of the people than dogs in the home and pay no mind to the cats. I’ve been pretty good on a leash, with minimal pulling. I’m ridiculously sweet and loving (look, those are her words, I’m not trying to toot my own horn or anything). I don’t have accidents in the house and I’m smart so I signal by the door to go out. I’m good at matching the activity level of my people, whether we are out exercising or lounging around at home. I really just want a new home with a loving, accepting family to call my own. If that home belongs to you, please fill out an adoption application.

Hello, I am a hunky senior named Murphy. Sadly, my owner has gone to a nursing home where I can not follow. I just came in and need some health care and evaluation time in my foster home. Check back for updates!

Hello, my name is Toby! I came to BBR because my former family realized they could not afford a dog. That family had gotten me off Craigslist 6 months prior. Not sure why anyone would give me up. Foster mom says I am a hunk of love. That sounds pretty good, right? She also says I have good energy for my age and can keep up with the family. I get along with kids, cats, and other dogs so basically a trifecta of perfect. I’ve been loose in the house during the day without issue, I’m nice on a walk, and generally a real gentleman all around. I can still handle stairs fine. If you are looking for me, please fill out the adoption application and get approved!
