Brody's Story

Home Alone

Click here to see the paws rating

A staff member described Brody as, “an independent soul who likes to be near his people but is also great at being left home alone when you go to work.” What more could you ask for? He would love nothing more than to get to know his new owner on his own terms. He’s extremely regimented and obedient—when he arrives at your home, he will sleep in his crate for a few days, then when he’s ready, he will pull his bedding out of his kennel and sleep just outside your door!

Are you Brody’s forever family? You might be if you don’t have small children or any other pets but you do have a great appreciation for ex-farm boys living out their glory days.
