This is Bradley, who was one of 8 dogs turned in to the Transylvania County Shelter by her owner.  At the time, she was just 8 weeks old, and her mom was only a little over a year old.  She and her mom were both fostered by, and then adopted by a family right here in Transylvania County.

Her name (and yes, she is a "she") is from one of her human's favorite trails in the area:  Bradley Creek Trail.   (Her mom is Avery, for Avery Creek Trail!!)

Turns out the name was well chosen, since her absolute favorite pasttime is to take long runs in the woods with her humans.
