Meet Brownie Adoption pending 9/28/19

***********We do not allow meet and greets without an application filled out. Please go to to find our online application to take the first step to meet Brownie.

Brownie is one in a million dog and a 6-year-old Havanese / Poodle mix. He was surrendered by his young owner who had two children and was moving can't take. She had been keeping him in a dark basement for many years. If you saw the condition he was in when we picked him up - it would have broken your heart. We bath him gently and cut the mats out and begged a groomer to see us the next day. He received a total shave down and we were glad to see the smelly old coat fall to the floor. Since he loves attention he would not mind being the only dog and we feel that is the preferred placement for Brownie

He appears to be housebroken but most have routine and use a crate for at least 3 months. Remember he was not cared for and left in isolation in a basement.

He loves people and other dogs. We believe he is okay with confident cats. He will need a dental by year-end and getting him grounded first and in a routine is what he needs next. He is 6 years old and the owner has his birthdate and was bought from a "USDA breeder". Poor Brownie - he suffered but he is so sweet and the suffering did not affect his personality. This was truly a rescue and the reason we keep going.
