Follow the directions below.

We are a 501c3 non profit organization dedicated to rescuing dogs from breeding facilities who are no longer useful or puppies who cannot be sold and dogs from euthanasia lists from selected shelters. We occasionally can take an owner surrender if space allows.

All donations go toward the rescue of these very at risk dogs and are greatly appreciated.

Adopt Me

Hi! My name is Tuffy and I am a super sweet little Chihuahua/Basenji boy who is 9 years old and I weigh 10 pounds. When I was about 2 years old, I found myself in a very bad place and was to be PTS. That did not sound good. Fortunately, B.R.A.S. rescued me and a few months later, I thought I had found my furever home. I don’t like children or big dogs. Well, 2 years later, they moved next door to a family with 3 small children who played in the front yard next to me all day and I barked at them. So, back to B.R.A.S. I went. A few months later, I went again to what I hoped was my furever home. It was not to be. My new family’s circumstances changed, and they could no longer keep me. Again, back to B.R.A.S. A year later, I went to where I was sure was me furever home! I was there over 3 years and my parents got very sick and couldn’t keep me so I am now 9 years old and back at B.R.A.S. The good news is, I never found myself back in a bad place again and B.R.A.S. always welcomed me back and I get to sleep with my foster mom and dad again!

I am super sweet and would do well in a quiet home with no children and no big dogs. If you have the perfect home for me, please ask for me on your application.

Love, Tuffy 091411-03

House Training

         The Majority of the dogs we rescue have lived their entire lives in less than ideal conditions so will need to be house and leash trained.  Most have never lived in a house, walked on a leash, had a treat or sat in a lap.  For many of them, their feet have never touched the ground until they arrive at our main facility after spending years on wire.  In other words, most things that dogs take for granted all of their lives.  However, they will learn with time, love, patience, and most of all commitment.  You must have an ample supply of all of these to reap the rewards of watching these very special dogs become your wonderful companion.
