A Little Bit About Me…
A volunteer writes: I have a soft spot for the seniors. I admit it. They should be enjoying their golden years on a soft bed, surrounded by people they love and who love them. Life throws curve balls as we all know, and when Browdy’s owner was hospitalized Browdy joined us. He’s a stunning dog in a soft coat, a little stump of a tail that’s always wagging, and a face that lights up when people are near. He may be housebroken as going potty was a priority as soon as we were out the door, and when business is done, rolling in for cuddles is his next priority. Browdy loves attention, comes when called for more cuddles, and although his tail is so short it’s hard to see, it never stops wagging. He’s the sweetest dog who has some physical issues (bad back legs), but that doesn’t stop him from going for slow short walks, navigating stairs up and down, and stepping in and out of his kennel. Cuddly, soft, sweet, gentle, I loved spending time with him, and I know the person or family that adopts this sweet boy will enjoy spoiling him. He’s such a sweetheart, making the best out of his current situation. Let’s make it the best it can be so that Browdy can retire with all the comforts of home. Ask to meet him today.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
Basic Information: Browdy is a 10 year old white and black medium mixed male. He was bought by a family member, from a breeder when he was a few months old. The family member gave Browdy to his previous owner 1 year ago. His previous owner no longer wanted him because he urinates on the furniture.

For a New Family to Know : Browdy is described as friendly, mellow and independent. He likes to play with rope bones. He played fetch. he was kept indoors and slept in a blanket in the living room. He ate both wet and dry Pedigree. He had accidents daily because he could not hold his urine. He was walked 3 time a day on 30 minute walks. He doesn’t pull while on leash.
Behavior Notes: Browdy whined throughout intake. He approached with a relaxed body and wagging tail. He allowed me to pet him and rolled over onto his belly. He stopped crying if his neck or belly was rubbed. He leaned into pets and allowed me to touch his paws. He took treats gently and attempted to sit on cue but had difficulty actually sitting, he plopped. He kicked his leg when his lower belly was rubbed. He allowed me to pick him up and went into his kennel easily. He allowed e to collar him. While in his kennel he barked as he layed down and wagged his tail if I passed him.
