09/24/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: The first few times I walked Bricks he was such a scaredy cat I wasn’t sure our relationship would ever consist of much more than walks around the block that ended with me having to do a lot of encouragement to get him back in his cage. And then on a whim I grabbed a tennis ball and Bricks’s entire demeanor changed: he held his head up, he wagged his tail, and his face lit up as if to celebrate FINALLY finding someone else in this strange place that also shares his love for tennis balls! He is a fetching machine and likes to do the froggy-legged sprawl with his prize, but lets me take it without issue. He has proven to be very quietly affectionate and will mosey on over to my lap and kiss my face. He is super easy to handle on leash and offers a soft tail wag to passersby that compliment his good looks. He seems housebroken, knows “sit,” and has done well with other calm dogs in our playgroups. I would still call him shy, but he really seems so well-behaved and to have a great sense of when it’s time to let loose and when it’s time to mind his manners. All that, and he’s cute as a button and sweeter than pie! Bricks is already neutered and ready to join his new family today…please come see him at Brooklyn ACC!
