A volunteer writes: Some dogs are so special you just need to make up words to describe them: Brindlicious is that word for Miss Bree. So quiet in her upper kennel, sitting side saddle which is beyond adorable, Bree waited patiently for her walk. I kept seeing staff stopping by her kennel and cooing and couldn’t wait to meet her. It was finally her turn and she went potty immediately confirming what we had been told about her housetraining skills (when walked at least every 7 hours). A pocket pittie with the gentlest smile, when I bent down to put a scarf around her neck she stole some kisses….so sweet, and I was happy to cuddle with her and kiss some more – no need to steal them! Her leash manners are lovely, she passes other dogs easily, and we’re told she loves to play and give kisses (check!), lived with a male dog, is friendly to all people including children, doesn’t guard her stuff, enjoys a bath and being brushed, likes toys and knows how to play fetch and is a cuddler (check, check, check!) Bree is so gentle and easy, not reacting to any of the summer morning park craziness, just happy to be with her new pal out for a walk and lots of cuddle time. The perfect pocket pittie size to fit into any living situation, her resume is top notch. The only thing missing from her life right now is you – her new person! Don’t make her wait long, come meet her today.

She is mostly house trained but has accidents in the house when left for more than 7 hours. She is well behaved when left in the house alone. She knows the commands sit and lay down. She pulls lightly on the leash when walked and prefers to go to the bathroom on grass. For exercise Bree loves to play in the park. She ate pedigree dry food. She slept on a doggie bed on the floor in the bedroom.
Behavior during intake
Bree was very friendly when I apporached her. She allowed me to scan her, collared and placed her onto the backdrop so I can photograph her . She wagged her little tail when spoken to softly, jumped up and gave me kisses and she was then transferred into a kennel.
Bree pulls a bit on leash. She was sociable toward the handler during the assessment – soft body, wagging tail. She was calm and relaxed during handling. Bree did a lot of jumping up, body checking and played tug-of-war with the leash during tag interaction. She took the toy and with a soft body language.
Bree was surrender to us. According to his previous owner Bree is very friendly with strangers,adults and children. She loves to play and give kisses.

The behavior department feels that she may do best with an experienced adopter who can follow up on this behavior in a more stable environment and can provide any necessary behavior modification. We also recommend a home without young children; older children can be considered pending interaction.

8/9: When off leash with other dogs, Bree engages in exuberant play, however does begin to ‘flag’ for the male greeter during. The behavior team feels a home with another playful dog could be considered for Bree pending a successful pre adoption introdcution. She arrived with information from her previous owner citing that she has lived with another dog (male).
