Build Brando a Forever Home

Brando came to the Gunnison Valley three years ago when a local family adopted him from a Denver rescue group.  Over the past few years, Brando began to show aggressive behavior - first toward other dogs and eventually toward strangers as well. After working extensively with a specialty dog trainer, Brando's family could no longer safely care for him and made the difficult decision to relinquish him to Oh Be Dogful Rescue. At Oh Be Dogful Rescue, we are continuing to work diligently with a trainer to rehabilitate Brando's fear-based aggression.  Unfortunately, because his behavior predominantly manifests toward strangers, Brando needs a secluded safe zone away from the hustle and bustle of Oh Be Dogful in order to minimize his triggers. Brando is the sweetest boy when he is in a protected environment, and our goal is to provide him with the sanctuary he needs in order to maximize his rehabilitation. 

Here is the breakdown of the supplies needed to build his home:
Fencing: $4,000
Space Heater: $138
Drywall: $50
Wood: $70
Screws & Fasteners: $10
Door: $200
Insulated Dog Door: $569
Mulch: $50

Oh Be Dogful Rescue is a registered 501(c)3 organization located in Crested Butte, Colorado.  We specialize in sanctuary for behaviorally challenged animals and superior end of life care. To date, our rescue has saved 53 animals. For questions about our organization or to learn more about our sweet boy, Brando, please feel free to reach out to us at (970) [phone redacted].
