A volunteer writes: Wanted: fun, forever family for one bodacious, bouncy broad! Chocolate-coated Brenda is 6 years young and full of ‘joie de vivre’ with an infectious smile and a wag that just won’t quit. From the moment that we meet, Brenda lets me know I’m a friend by easily stepping into her leash, walking happily by my side, and sliding up right next to me on a bench as soon as I sit down. It’s there that Brenda is happiest. Her shiny legs thrown across my lap, sniffing my pockets for more treats, and leaning her gorgeous self into my side as she enjoys a proper and thorough scratch. Brenda is said to have previously lived well with another dog with whom she played gently. She’s described by her former family as “friendly and independent” something with which I wholeheartedly agree! At various points during our snuggle session she hops down to enjoy an exploration all her own, tossing a toy contentedly in the air, before returning to me with a smile and a “woof!” (the request for another snack). That’s right, families. Brenda is the total package, single, ready to mingle, and looking for love in exactly the right place. Brenda is waiting in adoptions at Manhattan’s ACC.
