Brier is a sweet boy who just loves attention and people! He came to us from animal control. At his old home, he lost his right eye but we aren’t sure how. When he is neutered, we will have that eyelid sewn shut since it is not of any use to him anymore. We think this is a new injury because his perception is still a little off. He loves people, dogs, and kids. He likes to walk but is afraid of passing cars. He is housebroken and loves to cuddle. We think he spent a lot of his time outside at his old home, so he is grateful to be inside here.

He is estimated to be about 1.5 years old, will be neutered 12/1, will be up to date on vaccines, and has already been dewormed and given a flea treatment! Brier cannot leave the shelter until after he is neutered.
