Who on earth would shoot this loveable boy? Briar had the unfortunate luck of having a despicable neighbor; who shot Briar in the leg. His owner took him to the Vet but his leg could not be saved; being taken completely off. While he was there being fixed up, a heartworm test was done on him and he tested positive for heartworms. His owner was unable to afford to get him heartworm negative. She felt it was in Briar’s best interest to be taken into Southern Skies Rescue since she had heard such wonderful things about their success and the way they make sure it is a perfect fit for both new owner and their new companion as well as getting them healthy and some training so they would be more desirable. After heart worm treatment Briar is now heart worm negative and a happy boy. Since coming into SSLR Briar has learned to be a perfect gentleman. He is housetrained, rides well in the car, does not jump up on people, gets along great with people of all ages as well as other dogs. He is a passive boy-meaning he’s a big ole’ softy. He is so loveable and sweet. When you pet him he enjoys it so much, if you stop however, he will lightly lay his paw on you while asking you with his eyes “Please pet me some more, l Love it!” He has a cute half tail. You would almost forget he only has three legs. He gets around like any other fella, runs, walks well on a leash, walks by himself up and down stairs, jumps off of porches too, he even hikes his leg (yep..the missing one) while going potty. He likes to lay down while he eats his meals out of his food bowl. He plays with the other dogs and is gentle in his playing. When a ball is thrown he will chase it, but comes back to you without it. He understands “Back”, “Sit”, Comes running when you call his name, “Leave It” if he is chasing a critter outside, “Down”. He is wonderful at any store, dog parks, in crowds and nature trails. Along with all Briar’s good there are two not so good things. 1. He does not get along well with cats. 2. He may need a slight hand and lift getting into vehicles, but he gets out of them fine.
