Meet BROOKE

Are you looking for a fiercely loyal forever friend? Meet Brooke! This precious creature can be shy at first, but is sure to warm up to you with a little bit of time! Once Brooke feels comfortable with you, she is the most loyal friend a human could ask for, and will be your best friend forever. She walks great on leash, loves to snuggle, and mostly just wants to be close to you! Interested in meeting Brooke? Reach out to us and we'll connect you with her foster family for more information!

Foster update:
Brooke is a very sweet, but very shy and timid girl. Slowly but surely, however, we are building her confidence and helping her learn that she can trust the people in her life. She shows no aggression toward us whatsoever, but she only feels safe in a few select locations right now - in her crate, under the bed, behind the sofa, or on our laps. We are working on helping her learn that the rest of the house is safe too by using lots of encouragement and yummy treats and not pushing her past her current limits.

She is completely potty trained and has no difficulty holding it overnight or for multiple hours during the day. We think she likes to go for walks, but it can also be a bit overwhelming for her. She seems interested in other dogs, but is not reactive - she just stops and looks at them. She also doesn't seem to have any prey drive and shows no interest in squirrels or birds when we're out walking.

I think she would be happy in a home with one or more other small dogs or possibly cats that would be friendly toward her. I do wonder if being around another more confident (but also mellow) dog could help build her own confidence.

I do not think she would be a good fit for a home with young children - our kids are all over the age of 12, which is fine, but I think younger kids might have a hard time understanding Brooke's fearfulness and may not be able to appropriately respect her boundaries.
