01/09/2017 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Brody is the BOMB! Ok, I know it’s 2017 and no one says that anymore, but it’s the best way to describe this awesome boy. He grabbed my attention right away. Not only is he simply gorgeous with his big blockhead, dark brindle fur and sweet puppy eyes, but he doesn’t stop wiggling! He’s so friendly and sweet, and when I bend down to love on him, he presses his body against me, begging for more petting and kisses. When approached by other dogs, he’s quick to offer a playbow and a tail wag, as if to say, “Yes! Please! Let’s be friends!” Brody seems very housetrained, and while he may pull on the leash at times, is overall easy to handle. So, if you’re looking for a new BFF to join the family in this new year, don’t hesitate to ask to meet Brody today!
