Meet Brody

Brody is more than just your typical pup; he's a story of resilience, love, and second chances. At 11 months old and 48 pounds, this handsome schnauzer/boxer mix (DNA results pending) is ready to embark on a journey of companionship and discovery with a committed and understanding adopter. He has been in the shelter system nearly his whole life after being surrendered at only five months old to a kill shelter.

Despite his past, Brody's spirit remains unbroken, and his enthusiasm for life is infectious. He's a furry bundle of energy, always eager to explore new sights, sniff out intriguing scents, and chase after his favorite toys with unwavering determination. He is just the cutest cuddlebug whose goal is to make friends with everyone he meets. Brody loves to play but prefers smaller dogs as he tends to be a bit more anxious around larger ones. He is not recommended for a home with cats or young children. He’s always up for an adventure with you and is a big fan of hikes and jumping through the water.

But beneath Brody's playful exterior lies a gentle soul with unique needs. He's friendly and affectionate, craving human connection but Brody also grapples with OCD and anxiety, which require patience, understanding, and a structured environment to help him thrive. He finds solace in routine and benefits greatly from consistent training and positive reinforcement.

Brody's ideal companion is someone who sees beyond his challenges and recognizes the boundless potential within him. Adopters must be committed to providing the love, support, and guidance he needs to overcome his obstacles and become the best version of himself. With the right person by his side, Brody is sure to blossom into a loyal and devoted companion, ready to embark on countless adventures together. He recently spent a month in a board & train program and made tremendous progress. Here’s what the trainer has to say about Brody:
• Knows sit, down, stay, come. He also knows look, touch, and shake but not as consistent
• Doing much better riding in the car and seeing a decrease in his anxiety
• Housetrained, but he will have to be reminded sometimes because he is a puppy, of course. He is taken out once an hour and has gotten better about walking to the door to give a cue
• He LOVES his crate and needs nap times throughout the day in there to self soothe
• Great problem-solver and reads people's body language very well
• With more socialization and continued training, Brody can be one of those dogs that can come with their owner to a lot of places
• He needs to be with a family that will be active and give him long 1-2 hr. walks, in addition to playtime in a fenced yard, doesn’t suggest electric
• You will need a sense of humor as Brody is a bit of a clown and remember that he is a bit behind on puppy development so puppy-proofing will be a must for now

His adoption fee is $450 and Brody is vaccinated, microchipped, heartworm negative, and neutered. You will also be provided with training support and a session, if local.
