^^^ BRAD ^^ ROUGH LIFE - NEEDS FEMALE ADOPTER 8 y/o - 70 lb - neutered male Brad has not had an easy life, and at eight years old, he found himself on the actual cusp of being euthanized having ended up in a high kill SC shelter. We believe his owner either died or was hospitalized and that he lived only with women because he has been very reactive to all men that he has met. He also does not seem to have ever been socialized with other dogs and has been very reactive to them as well. When Brad came into the shelter at Christmastime, he was not neutered and heartworm positive (he has since been neutered and is receiving heartworm treatment). So he's had not only a rough life, but whoever owned him completely set him up for failure because now at 8 years old, he can't go to a home with men and he can't go to a home with other animals. He needs to go to a home that is primarily female and who's willing to crate him if the occasional male visitor comes by. He will also need a yard with a secure privacy fence so as not to be able to see any neighboring or passing men or animals. On a positive note, he's extremely affectionate with women and he makes an excellent guard/protective dog. He is on the lower energy side and makes the perfect couch-potato snuggle buddy, and will happily and contently lay outside in the sun. We know this is like asking for a needle in a haystack, but we are desperately hoping there is a unicorn Adopter out there for him because otherwise, after all, he's been through, if there's nobody willing to adopt him, he will again be at risk of euthanasia... he has been in a 6 foot kennel run in boarding since Christmas and that is not any life for a dog, especially one his age... :,-( So, if you or someone you know are interested in adopting Brad.
