Bravo is a beautiful 7 year-old Aussie who was found as a stray in a rural area and taken to the local shelter. The shelter quickly discovered that Bravo was blind so it was a mystery as to whether he strayed from his home or was dumped. He is certainly a friendly guy who loves being around people so they suspected the latter might be the case. When he wasn’t claimed at the shelter, Bravo made the trip to Canine Lifeline so he could relax in a foster home while searching for a home that best suits his needs. In spite of his lack of vision, Bravo has adjusted very quickly to life in his foster home. He quickly learns where furniture and doorways are located and is able to maneuver around and through them, respectively. Stairways do need to be gated so he doesn’t fall down stairs. Bravo walks beautifully on a leash and has had excellent manners in his foster home. He is crate-trained and has not had any accidents in his foster home so ought to be able to pick up the house rules quickly in his new home with lots of supervision. Bravo will sit and give paw on command. He’s very friendly with both people and other dogs. He’s currently sharing his foster home with another dog and has done well with her. Having another calm, well-mannered dog in his new home might help him adjust to his new surroundings. Bravo will either need a home with a yard that has a secure aboveground fence or always be kept on leash when outdoors. An invisible fence would not be suitable for him. Bravo weighs about 50 pounds and his adoption fee is $200. He’s neutered, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations, wormed, on flea and tick preventative, and microchipped. As part of the adoption process, all adopters must commit to a two-week adjustment period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized. Please email if you’re interested in Bravo.
