About Me

Meet Rambo
Status: Fostered
Estimated Age: 4-5 Years

Estimated Weight:  38-40 Pounds
NOTE: May prefer to be an only dog.

UPDATE – 25 OCTOBER 2021 (from foster mom): Rambo has been in my home several months now and has acclimated to pack life. While he has become tolerant and used to a multi-dog household, he would do fine and may even prefer a home as an only dog. He is house trained and crate trained, although he is not crated and has had no accidents in the house. He knows how to use a doggy door. He is very affectionate, friendly and has become a good house guest (minus a little counter surfing). He would make an excellent companion.

UPDATE – 31 JULY 2021: We have discovered that Rambo may prefer to be the only dog in a home (wasn’t getting along with the resident dog), so we moved him to a new foster home. He is now living with our kennel manger and her 8 dogs. He loves human attention and will occasionally snarl at one of the other dogs, but he seems to be settling in and doing well. He is housebroken using a doggie door, and he is crate-trained. His current foster mom does not need to crate him when she goes to work. He likes to sleep by himself in her bathroom! This boy has been through a lot of change over the past month, so it is good to see him settling down while waiting for his new forever home.

UPDATE – 21 JULY 2021 (from foster family): Rambo is a big love bug! With every day that we have him he starts to come out of his shell more and more, feeling more comfortable. He definitely was a little ancy at first (wouldn’t lay down and relax), but I think that was due to him being confused about his recent move. Now he will sleep in his dog bed during the day when I am at work in the home office!

He does bark with outside activity, as his previous owners stated, however as he has felt more comfortable here he has been barking less frequently. Rambo is afraid of thunderstorms! He will randomly bark at certain dogs on our walks, but I think he just wants to say hello! He is a bigger dog and can pull a little on walks.

He has gotten along great with our resident beagle. I find the two of them playing together at random times during the day! Rambo would do well as an only dog, or with another dog to play with.

Rambo sleeps through the whole night in his dog crate. He does well in the crate (no crying or trying to escape). Rambo knows basic commands and is always hoping for a treat or human food!

He is just looking for a home full of love (and walks!). He will do his business in the backyard as well though! We can’t wait to see Rambo find his fur-ever home!

NEW – 17 JULY 2021: Rambo came to BREW when his owner could no longer care for him due to a job change that required many hours away from home. Fortunately, we were able to get Rambo into a foster home right away since he is used to living in a home with a family. When we transported him, he jumped right into the back seat and settled quickly into the crate. He rode quietly and calmly. He seems like a very nice dog – friendly and fairly quiet. We will hear from the foster family later, but here is what the previous owner had to say about Rambo:

  • Demeanor/temperament: Calm, affectionate, barks when there is activity outside (i.e. mailman, delivery person, people approaching the house); Extremely food motivated but not aggressive. Rambo does not like the vet and can experience some anxiety when going to the vet. We use trazadone for those occasions.
  • Rambo is good with most dogs. He will sometimes bark when we see other dogs on the street. He is great with people who are affectionate and is good with children – not aggressive.


Q:  Can you tell me more about a specific dog?  Is s/he good with kids / housetrained / good with cats/ etc?

A:  What we know is in the write up.  Our knowledge about any dog that is not in a foster homes is limited.  Once approved, our adoption coordinators will work with you to match you with the right dog.

Q:  Can I meet a specific dog?

A:  We’re sorry, but you must be an approved adopter to meet our dogs.  Pre-pandemic, dogs could be met at adoption days, but you still had to be approved to adopt from an adoption day.

Q:  How can I adopt a specific dog?

A:  You must submit an adoption application and be approved to adopt.  You can do that under Adopt – you can also learn about the adoption process there..  It will take about two weeks for an adoption coordinator to get in touch with you.  Please keep in mind that dogs that are available now may be adopted in the meantime.  But we are always getting new dogs.   You can see them on our website.

Q:  Can I add another dog to the list on my application?

A:  We don’t hold you to the dogs you listed on your application.  It gives us an idea of what you are looking for.  Plus it will let us know if someone is interested in one of our special needs / hard to place dogs.

Q:  I indicated that I was interested in a specific dog on my application, but I see that s/he has been adopted.  What happened?

A:  We do not hold dogs.  Applicants in the queue before you are being approved and may adopt the dog you are interested in before you are approved.  But we are always getting new dogs in and your adoption coordinator will help you find the perfect match.
