Featured Dog: Brendan – ADOPTED!

Some of our dogs have been waiting to be adopted for so long, they go into foster care. Then they’re in foster care for so long that sometimes they visit the shelter to get a better exposure 🙂 I had the pleasure of walking Brendan the other day. He’s described as a small-sized Bull Terrier mix, but I hardly noticed. All I saw was a lovely dog who was eager for a walk and enjoyed it. He liked being petted, and absolutely loved the chance to play (and probably show off ) his fetching skills in the x-pen.

I think he might have been a little delirious afterwards:
Brendan after a long walk and long play session- happiness!

Isn’t that a great smile on him?

Brendan has a great smile

Clearly this is a dog that will make you smile 🙂

Brendan plays!

Look at that speed!

Toy-playing aside, Brendan would do very well with training- he ‘sat’ readily and his foster mom knows that he has learned ‘stay’ and ‘lie down.’ He needs some more ongoing training– he’s still working on being crate trained and housetrained, but I have no doubt he’ll do well, given his motivation for toys and food.

He’s got his own blog about his life in foster care. So far, it looks very good (I’m envious!).

Here’s a video of him:
