If you are looking to add a dynamic duo to your family, then you’re in luck – Theo and Brimsley have made their way to the available page! These two handsome brindle brothers are truly bonded and exhibit separation anxiety when they are not together. The pair was sadly surrendered to FBRN when their former owners were no longer able to give them the attention they deserved after being overwhelmed with their own personal medical issues.
Both of these gentlemen are in good health and only take probiotics and omega supplements. Theo also takes one Pepcid in the morning before eating breakfast. Both boys love children and do great with kiddos of all ages. However, Theo has exhibited some resource guarding tendencies and because of this, a home with dog-savvy children is needed. Theo and Brimsley also do great with other dogs as long as slow introductions are made. Theo, especially, can be intimidated by larger dogs, but with slow introductions he has done well.
Theo is an absolute happy camper who enjoys lying around and maybe going for a couple walks during the day. He loves playing in the yard with Brimsley and chewing his Benebones. He also loves finding sticks in the yard to chew on! With Theo, there is the potential for toy aggression – not with Brimsley, but with a new dog. Again, slow introductions must be followed so that Theo and Brimsley are set up for success in their new home.
Brimsley is also a happy camper who enjoys doing everything with his brother. Games of chase in the securely fenced yard or walks together are what make Brimsley the happiest. Brimsley isn’t quite as outgoing as Theo and he really dislikes is being separated from Theo. These two eat together, play together, sleep together, and are naughty together! Brimsley has developed a hobby of chasing lizards, and has a soft spot for Benebones and squeaky toys.
These two handsome fellas would do great in just about any type of home as long as they are together. They would do well with a single person, a couple, or a family with children. They are housebroken and crate trained – they are even crated together on the rare occasion that foster mom has to leave them for longer than a few hours. A fenced yard is preferred, but if you don’t have a fenced yard, no problem! These two will just as happily chase each other around the house. If you’re lucky enough to take your pups to the office, then Theo and Brimsley would love to accompany you. Double the fun, although, we doubt they would double office production!
Theo and Brimsley’s foster mom had this to say about them, “Brimsley and Theo are amazing! I believe dogs can be separated, but these guys are each other’s everything. That being the case, they do have individual personalities in which they blossom together. Brimsley appears to be the alpha when in fact he is the least secure. Brimsley is happiest when he is being petted, preferably in somebodies lap, while his brother is chewing on a toy nearby. He snores like a bear, and cries like a baby when he feels attention is due. An utter love bug at 36 pounds!”
If you are looking to get two of the same model, then look no further than Theo and Brimsley. All you need to do is fill out an application and be ready to pick them up should you be selected. These boys are too big to fly, but they do splendidly in the car so you’ll want to be prepared for a road trip! FBRN does not ship dogs as cargo, so adopters are expected to pick up their dogs from their foster family.
FBRN dogs are in foster care in people’s private homes. For the foster families’ safety, we do not disclose specific locations, and we don’t set up meet and greets prior to applications. For detailed information about the dogs in our care, please read the extensive bios on each dog.
