“When you meet someone for the first time, that’s not the whole book. That’s just the first page.”
— Brody Dalle, The Distillers
Welcome Brody, our white and brindled little gem! Brody is a sweet young lady, estimated around 2 years old, and currently weighs around 36 pounds! She should top out at around 40 pounds, but otherwise, she’s staying petite!
Housebreaking, Crate-Training, and Commands
Brody has blown away her foster parents with her quick learning – after such a short time, she is already housebroken! Within her first week with us, she has even walked over to the door and barked to let her foster mom know that it was time for a potty break. Brody is also an absolute pro at crate-training. She knows the “crate” command, sleeps soundly for the whole night, and then waits patiently in the morning for her foster parents to wake up and let her out. What a good girl!
Behavior around other Dogs, Cats, and Kids
Brody is a pretty popular girl around the house. She was a bit competitive at first with her foster dog siblings and tried to be the center of her foster parents’ attention, but she has since become more comfortable and gets along very well with all of them. She’s even starting to show her playful side with one particular dog friend in the house! That said, slow and structured leashed introductions are best while Brody builds up her confidence around new dog friends.
In terms of feline “friends,” Brody has a couple of them currently and wasn’t a big fan of being swatted in the face by one of them. How rude! Other than that, she does not seek them out (would you, after being swatted in the face?!) and mostly ignores them and leaves them be. Brody has not been around any little humans just yet.
Behavior around People
Brody has really buddied up with her foster parents, and seems friendly and affectionate to other humans she has met so far. She loves snuggling up with her foster mom but is also content being independent and resting somewhere on her own. She likes to greet her friends with a bark, but once you get close enough she’s all wiggles and love!
Brody is excited to see the world! So much that she does pull on her leash a little… It’s a work in progress. Brody doesn’t seem to need too much exercise and is happy to bounce around a bit before getting right back to her favorite thing – snuggling.
Brody is as sweet as can be and a joy to be around! Are you ready to meet your new best friend? Contact us today!
