Meet Adoptable Braveheart!
Braveheart is a 3-5 year old, male, brindle coat with white trim, 65lb, short and stocky, mixed breed.
This sweet, sassy boy has stolen the hearts of everyone at the shelter, he is known as being a slowpoke land-hippo. He has so much love and character, and has been through a lot in his life, but continues to love so much. Braveheart is mostly motivated by the human touch, brushing, petting, snuggling, and most of all his toys. HE LOVES HIS TOYS and TREATS! We have put him on a little bit of a diet because he only once in a while likes going for walks longer than 10-15 minutes, he generally chooses to go outside and lay down in one spot, asking for non-stop petting. Braveheart has shown great love for kids & teenagers, many families have come in to specifically walk and hang with him because their kids adore him so much & vice versa. While Braveheart is socialized with other dogs and has walked on leash with some of his pals at the shelter, he is quite indifferent about playing with other dogs and cares more about the human bond than a dog pal. Depending on what environment Braveheart is adopted into, his new family should be prepared for him not to walk too far until he has adapted to his new setting. Braveheart has gone in a vehicle once while at the facility and did not mind it, but he is a heavy boy and does not enjoy the concept of being picked up just yet. It will take a strong person to be able to lift this boy in and out of a vehicle since he doesn’t know how to jump in and out comfortably, yet. While Braveheart is relatively short haired, he will need regular brushing, bathing and a proper skin / diet regime. This handsome man is patiently awaiting his forever home.
