Iím Bradley, and Iím a big hunk of clingy love. Foster mom says I could be described as ďVelcro.Ē And she says that she means that in the best possible way.

I was in a very scary shelter in CA for an eternity, officially 2 months. There was one person I liked in the shelter, and now that I have a foster mom, I really like her. I havenít been around very many people in my life, and the ones I was around werenít always nice to me. Iím wary of new people, but if Iím on a leash or in my crate, that helps me to feel safer. Once I get to know new people, I like them too, especially if they give me treats!

Now on to the other things that I like. I love playing with my foster sisters and brother. I like to carry things around in my mouth. I like to patrol the backyard in case any small birds or chipmunks try to invade. I love car rides. I love snuggling and getting patted. I love going on walks, and I am really good and obedient on a leash. Iím also good off-leash. Since Iím so attached to foster mom, I donít usually let her get too far away from me.

Foster mom calls me Super-Duper Bradley Cooper because she says I am that good and that handsome.

Bradley is a calm, playful, loving goofball. When all the other dogs are running around and ignoring me, he is always right there with me, wondering what I might want from him. He is the one I always turn to and say, Itís nice to have one good dog in the family.

Bradley is afraid of new people and will need time to learn that people can be kind, friendly and safe. Given time and sensitive training, he will mature into a fun and easy companion. Bradley will be happiest in a quiet home, probably without children.

He is very smart, learns quickly, and definitely wants to please. He is extremely athletic and would make a great running or hiking companion. He is quiet and good in the house with great house manners.

At the moment, Bradley has mild separation anxiety. He will bark in his crate, off and on, not continuously. This is getting better all the time, and as he gains confidence in other areas, the separation anxiety should continue to abate. He is good with other dogs, sometimes playing and sometimes ignoring or avoiding. He is also good with cats.

Bradley is already a dreamboat in so many ways, has tons of potential and will grow into an all-around delightful companion.
