Brody's Story

If you start to stare into Brody’s deep, sweet, soulful eyes, you may never want to stop!  Brody is a gorgeous senior hound that came to PAWS from one of our rural transfer partners.  Sweet, soulful eyes, soft, velvety ears and a little bit of a smile make it hard to resist this boy!  Brody is a gentle, loving soul who loves going for walks and still has plenty of pep left in his step!  He’s hoping his future family loves strolls outside as much as he does!  He is still learning how to be a good boy on a leash, so he will need some guidance on leash etiquette in the future.  Probably even more than walks, Brody loves being outside and could probably spend the whole entire day enjoying the great outdoors if given the chance.  He would really enjoy having a backyard he can romp around in whenever he pleases!  If you initiate playtime with him, he will happily trot around and enjoy a good game of fetch!  Otherwise, he’ll be completely content with rolling around in the grass and soaking up the UV rays!  He is also highly food motivated and would love to have his family right by his side to take him through training in the future.  Brody would certainly enjoy learning tons of new tricks and is well on his way to developing into the perfect gentleman!

Brody is on the hunt for a forever family with an experienced owner and without young children.  Brody adores his food so much that he would love it if he didn’t have to share.  He would do best as the only pet in the home as a result.  Brody is currently enjoying time in a foster home where his foster mom is ecstatic to have him there!  We’ve learned that this sweet boy enjoys resting in big, comfy dog beds and recently claimed his foster’s futon sofa as his own.  He enjoys relaxing there for hours on end and would like to have his own quiet space to kick back in when it’s time for a good snooze!  Brody does seem to be a bit sensitive to pets all over and for extended periods of time.  His foster mom reports that he does enjoy having his space and is slowly becoming more comfortable with receiving affection from those he trusts.  He would do best with someone who can understand when he’s had enough direct interactions for the time being.  Brody does do super well with guests coming into the home, just as long as there’s lots of treats involved and it is done fairly slowly.  Once he’s warmed up to you, he is bound to become your very best friend!  His fosters describe him as being a good boy who can be such a cutie!  He loves to chew on bones and bully sticks and they certainly are able to keep him entertained for a while!  Does this sweet, gentle guy sound just perfect to you?  Email us at to find out how you can meet this handsome boy!
