Meet Brody! Brody is a 55lb Plott Hound/Shepherd mix and is fully grown. He’s just about 5 years old so you won’t have to worry about any of that puppy banter. Oh, and did I mention that he is housebroken and crate trained? Yep, just an all-around great dog.
Ok, Brody likes to be with his people so he whines a little if he’s all by himself. He goes into his crate on his own, keeps it clean, and sleeps through the night though. Currently, Brody lives with children ages 10 and 14 and is an absolute doll to them; he’s very calm, gentle and sweet and loves running around with them in the yard! There are also other dogs in the household and Brody will play with them if they initiate it. When it comes to new dogs, he can get pretty spunky. After about 24 hours, the novelty wears off and you might see him instigate play here and there.
Brody can live happily with cats, too! There’s some interest at first but he keeps his distance – unless the cat starts to get frisky, then he plays along. He picks up cues very well (cats and dogs alike) and is pretty low-key to begin with. Overall, Brody is confident and comfortable in all situations. So if you’re looking for that medium-mannered pup to join you at the brewery… just sayin’! Loud noises? Don’t bother him. Random people? Best friends! Hangin’ out outside? Couldn’t be happier. See? Brewery dog.
Regular exercise is definitely important for Brody – whether that means a couple of walks per day or running around the yard, he’s happy either way. Dog toys + Brody = a great time! Playing keep-away while running circles around the couch is Brody’s idea of fun! Don’t worry, he never picks things up that you wouldn’t want him to ‘keep-away.’ His energy level isn’t high, but regular stimulation is a good idea. Chasing the kids around is probably the best energy release. Besides – you can kill two birds with one stone (sorry, we love birds, just can’t think of a better way to get the point across): kids get tired, dog gets tired. No. More. Problems.
If you love dogs but you don’t want to go through the hassle of training a puppy and you just want to be able to sit back, relax, and enjoy the simple things in life, Brody is your partner in crime. He knows a couple tricks already, loves his people, loves children, and gets along with anything and everything.
