A Little Bit About Me…
A Staff member writes : Brooklyn came to us as a stray and currently on ID hold. He is a sweet natured, calm boy that is on the timid side. We are trying to lift his spirits and have been giving him extra attention and keeping him at the front office as much as possible (and he is enjoying the attention!)
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…

BEHAVIOR DETERMINATION: EXPERIENCE (suitable for an adopter with some previous dog experience, especially with the behaviors outlined below)
Potential challenges: Fearful
Potential challenges comments: Brooklyn is timid with new environments and people. He will need time to warm up and should be spoken to in a soft, gentle voice. Brooklyn should not be forced to submit to petting or handling when he is showing signs he is uncomfortable.He will do best with a slow approach and slow introduction.
