Furry Tails: Searching For A Forever Home (5/24)

Are you looking to bring a pet into your home? Local animal shelters are a great place to find a furry companion. So, as part of Furry Tails, I'll be doing an ongoing feature on adoptable pets from local animal shelters once a week. If you have room in your heart and are looking to bring a lovable ball of fur into your home, maybe one of these guys is meant to be a part of your family!


Brad Pitt

Animal Friends
This handsome pup was featured on Furry Tails a few months ago. Brad Pitt was recently adopted, but then was returned back to the shelter. He had a tough past even before that, and still needs a forever home where he'll get the love and care he deserves.

Animal Friends says:
"Brad Pitt is a dashing Bull Dog-Beagle mix looking for a home that will help heal his broken past. Brad Pitt originally came to us as a stray in December 2012 covered in pepper spray. He was scared and nervous. We cleaned him up and got him comfortable in a warm kennel. Brad was here for a few months and adopted into a loving home. Upon adopting him, the family was forced to return Brad because the neighborhood was against having a bully mix in the subdivision. This was a very sad return as they loved him and he was perfect in their house.

"Brad was again ready for a new home and he was adopted. However, Brad ended up at our door without a collar and confused. We called the adopters and they had sold him to another person with a criminal record. Luckily, he was able to get back into our care.

"He is again living in a foster home. The foster home has said nothing but great things. He is housebroken, a cuddle bug and loves to chew on Bully-Sticks. Brad enjoys watching movies and playing board games. He adores playing in the snow and chasing after birds. Brad does well in a crate while he is alone. He can pull during walks; however, he is working on loose leash walking.

"We feel that Brad would do well in a home with all age children. He would do best in a home as the only animal. Brad is a great ambassador for his breed. He is very playful and loves to be around people. He even likes hugs! We'd like him to go to a home where he could get plenty of exercise and be active with his family. Brad had a rough start in life, but we're sure he'd love fill the role as top dog in your home. Brad is a great dog looking for a forever home - Could it be yours?

Brad Pitt has been neutered, vaccinated and microchipped.
