I came into the shelter as a owner surrender on 25-Oct-2017, with the surrender reason stated as person circumstance- landlord won’t allow.
Sorry, this pet is for new hope partners only.

Summary:: Broly appears to be uncomfortable or afraid of the slip lead. He has also allowed minimal handling from his caretakers. Broly is very fearful and sensitive towards touch when attempting to pet him, he is very aware of his surroundings. The assessor tried to coax Broly towards them and that’s when he growled giving a warning. Out of concern for his stress levels and his response to restraint, we feel Broly is not a great candidate for a handling assessment at this time. Please see his owner surrender profile for a full summary of his behavior in his previous home.
Summary (1):: According to Broly’s previous owner, Broly lived with 2 other male large dogs. He was relaxed and gentle with both of them. 10/26: When off leash at the Care Center, Broly initially is nervous and quickly moves pass the novel female dog. Further into his session, he exchanges sniff with the greeter, and becomes sexually motivated. He takes time to respond to handler interruptions. 10/27: Today, Broly mostly kept to himself, exploring the pens. He greeted the novel female dog with a soft body and was tolerant of her assertive posturing. 10/28: Broly is sexually motivated and repeatedly licks the other dog’s genitals. He moves away when handlers approach him.
