Brewster is a LARGE, sweet boy that is looking for his new furr-ever home. He loves being around people and thinks he’s a lap dog. He appears to be full house trained and knows some basic obedience. So far he gets along with a few of the other dogs here at the Kamloops shelter but he would prefer to be the only dog in his future home. Brewster would probably do fine in a home with older kids. We don’t know what he would be like around other types of animals (i.e cats, horses). Brewster does appear to have some allergies and requires a special diet to help manage them, as well as to keep him at a healthy weight.
He gets easily over excited when meeting new people. So he needs a guardian that’s willing to work on some basic manners with him. A home that can also provide lots of exercise and outings is a must for this busy boy. Going to formal obedience classes would definitely be a good thing, not only for the learning but it’s a good bonding opportunity for his new guardian.
If you would like to know more about Brewster please speak with shelter staff. A behaviour counselling session with our Adoption Staff is necessary before adopting any animal to help ensure success in the new home.
