Brooklyn is a 1 year old unneutered male that has no past or current medical issues that the previous owner is aware of. Previous owner had Brooklyn for 10 months but can longer have the dog due to mothers severe asthma.
According to the previous owner, around strangers, Brooklyn is shy for a few days but once he warms up he plays gently with both adults and children. Owner had a 5 year old child in the home and stated that Brooklyn would always try to play with her son and was always respecful. Brooklyn lived with a small male dog and was respectful and playful with the other animal. When Brooklyn would see large breed dogs outside, he would want to play. Brooklyn has never been exposed to cats so behavior around them is unknown. Brooklyn does not have a bite history.
Previous owners stated that Brooklyn does have a habit of peeing indoors and it was due to the puppy needing training. Brooklyn isn’t bothered when any food, treat, or toy is taken from him or when he is pushed or pulled off furniture. He enjoys being given baths and isn’t bothered by having his coat brushed or nails trimmed. Brooklyn isn’t bothered when an unfamiliar person approaches the home, yard, previous owner, or a family member.
For a New Family to Know:
Brooklyn is described as extremely friendly, affectionate, excitable, and playful with a high activity level. When in the home, Brooklyn is the type to follow you around seeking attention.

According to previous owner, Brooklyn isn’t house-trained and would have daily accidents. Brooklyn usually goes to the bathroom on the grass or on the cement sidewalk when out in the yard. When left alone in the home, Brooklyn would be well-behaved. For exercise, the owner would let Brooklyn loose in yard.
