05/30/2017 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Brandi is a pretty dog; she has long long legs, and soulful brown eyes. Brandi is understandably upset to be at the shelter. Brandi seems like the kind of dog who loves her “person” with her whole heart but also has the maturity to rest independent from them. Brandi would rather have Milk Bones instead of meatballs, which left me wondering if perhaps my meatball making skills needed some fine tuning. All in all, Brandi is a sweet girl needing a new place to call home. If you’re interested in adopting Brandi, please come to the Care Center and meet her.

ENERGY LEVEL: Her owner describes Brandi as having a medium activity level. In the care center, Brandi displays a low level of energy, though this may be due to environment.
RECOMMENDATIONS: Experienced (suitable for an adopter with some previous dog experience, especially in the behavior outlined below) _X_No young children (under 5)- – Brandi seems a bit uncomfortable with quick movements and may be most comfortable in a home without very young children. Older, dog-savvy young children can be considered pending interaction. Potential challenges: _X_Handling/touch sensitivity – Brandi has been noted to become uncomfortable with handling at times. It is important to always go slow, Brandi should never be forced to approach anything that she is uncomfortable with or to submit to petting or handling. Brandi may do best in a calm and quiet home environment and spoken to in a soft, gentle voice.
