Meet Brinley

Available for adoption!

Hello new family!

My name is Brinley. I am 14-15 weeks old and at my last appointment, I was almost 15lbs. We aren’t sure what my breed mix is but foster mom is guessing Chi, Hound, and maybe Shepherd mix (because of the looks of 3 of my siblings). I will probabaly be 30-50# full grown so I'll be the perfect size for travel. If you like puppies who can do a great head tilt, I’m your girl.

My short life didn't start out so good because my siblings and I all had parvo and that delayed out transport to New york by a few weeks. But we all kicked parvo’s butt and I am ready to find my fur-ever family. I am still working on learning that not all people or other doggos are bad. Now that I have gotten used to hanging out with humans they aren't so bad, especially when they will give me some space and a nice stuffed kong. Once I warm up, I LOVE belly rubs and snuggling on the couch (or army-crawling underneath it to recover toys!).

Foster mom thinks I’m a bit of an odd duck because I don’t like cheese or peanut butter and I’m only just discovering hot dogs. She has finally learned to start our training sessions with recall so she can throw my food and reward me for coming back. When I’m a little calmer and more focused, we work on sit, down, touch, leave it, tug, fetch, and place. I also need to learn something called “stay” so that humans can take pictures of my pretty face--apparently they all come out blurry now?

I am mostly housetrained, unless I get really distracted or mama doesn't pay attention to my cues to let her know I gotta go now! When I do have accidents, it’s usually on a pee pad, or on paper towel or napkin if there is one already on the floor.

My foster siblings all have very extensive wardrobes so I have gotten really good at wearing all kinds of collars, harnesses, and jackets. I don't mind the leash, but I don't have to use that very much at my house so will need a little more work on that. I do have to drag a long line behind me when I go on little hikes with the other fur-kids but that doesn’t slow me down at all and I mostly stay with the group.

I am currently living with 3 other dogs and my best friend is an almost 2 year old PomChi named Potato. We play ALL the time! We wrestle inside and outside, even if it’s raining or snowing. (PS, snow zoomies are the BEST zoomies!) My terrier foster brother, Winston, is starting to play with me but I always listen to him when he says he’s not in the mood to play or if he doesn’t want to share. I am afraid of their cousin Ruger though, even though he is very friendly and paid no attention to me so slow introductions to other dogs would be best. I would love another small, younger friend to play with or another neutral dog because I do like to play by myself too.

I am crated when unsupervised and go right in for a treat and make no fuss while I hang out. At night, I get a blankie over my crate to keep me warm and there’s even a radio in my room so there’s background noise. I really like nice comfy couches and dog beds and I sleep on one at night. I am a little shy when I meet new people but once we get to know each other a little better, I will let you pet me all you want. I have met two loud, busy children (ages 7 and almost 2) and I love them so much! I may need slow introductions for my new family though because I can be quite shy. Once I warm up I can be a little exuberant with my affection so I’m still working on my small-human manners, but foster mom says she’s proud of my progress.

Foster mom here! Brinley is a sweet sweet little girl, pretty chill for the most part. She can be a bit skittish in new situations but with proper space and some snacks, she warms up and loves to be with her people. She likes puzzle toys and slow feeders and she loves to chew. A lot. (But no furniture yet!) She was a touch resource-guardy with my other dogs for the 7-10 days she was with me but she’s gotten used to them being around and no longer has an issue. Just something to be aware of if she goes to a home with other dogs, she may need to be managed for a short time as she gets comfortable. She doesn’t seem to be into any “sports” as of yet, but she loves to hike and race around with the other dogs on trails.

Brinley is up to date on vaccines, has been dewormed, and has been spayed. She is being fostered in Watertown, NY and is available for adoption through All Creatures Big and Small Pet Rescue .

Our Beanie litter was pulled from a shelter in Kentucky when it was closing for repair and any dogs (or puppies) left after Dec 20th were going to be euthanized. The day they were supposed to come to NY on transport, they fell ill with parvo and were going to be euthanized at the shelter. We couldn't let that happen to pups that we had taken responsibly for, so in order to give them a fighting chance, we had them pulled and taken to a vets office in Kentucky that we use so yhey could be treated and hopefully survive this aweful puppy illness that already took the life of another litter of pups at the shelter. With proactive treatment at the vets office, all puppies survived and were discharged to rescue within a week of being admitted. After much anticipation, they finally arrived in NY on Saturday. We are unsure what breed mix they are, but at nearly 11 weeks old, they range in size from 5.5 -9# so we think they will likely be ~40# full grown. All are very sweet pups, liking to play, as well as cuddle. They ha e gentle dispositions so we think they will fit in to most any home, maybe yours?
They will need a booster vaccine at our veterinarians office in a few weeks, then they will be scheduled for spay/neuter and ready to be officially adopted thereafter. They have have their first vaccines, flea treatment and dewormer thus far.

Fostering is free but once ready to adopt, an adoption donation of $450 will be asked to cover a small portion of their boarding, transport, supplies and veterinary and care fees. For more information, go to and email a completed adoption application to or submit at or copy and paste a completed adoption application from our homepage with your inquiry if you would like a response back. We get multiple inquires each day with only an hour of "free time" to volunteer and answer them around our full-time jobs and family life...don't let your inquiry get passed by because of an incomplete application. Thanks in advance for your help!

Help our rescue by donating to our "Spay the momma fund". When adopting one of our babies, if each new family would contribute an extra $10 we can help out that babies mother by assisting with the cost of her spay. Help turn the momma into a pet rather than a breeding factory, donate today!
