My name is Brook and I am the most adorable, friendly, playful puppy you could find!
***Brook is not a CDR dog and has not been evaluated by CDR. Willow’s Wings Animal Sanctuary and Rescue, near Binghamton, NY will make all decisions regarding her adoption.***
History, Personality and What I am Looking for in a Forever Home
I was adopted as a small puppy by a fine person. I had a seizure and they started me on the proper medications, but that required follow-up bloodwork and they didn’t have the money for that so they stopped my medications, and then I had another seizure. Since they didn’t feel able to provide the ongoing medical care that I need, they very kindly surrendered me to Willow’s Wings Animal Sanctuary, and I have been having a wonderful time bunking here since.
I am a very, very friendly and affectionate little girl! I love to give kisses to all people who stop to say hi to me, and I love to spend time with you, learn things, get attention, and play!
I am super smart! They tell me this is my breed, that we learn really fast and love to learn and use our smarts. I would LOVE an adopter who wants to teach me tricks or do doggy sports like agility with me. That would be SO FUN!
I am athletic! I love to play! I love to run around (in a safely fenced area). I have not had any leash training yet, so I’m not good at walking on leash, but since I am so smart and interested in learning, if you take some time to teach me in a way that is fun, I’ll get better at it lickety-split!
I love other dogs and I am excellent with cats! I really hope to find some playmates, either another dog in the home that likes to run around and play, or someone who likes to go to the small dog dogpark or something like that. I might do great at doggy daycare too! And I want to play with you too, I want to learn all the fun games you like to play!
Right now I am trained to go on pee pads on the outside deck at the sanctuary, so I will likely need some help with housebreaking when I move to your house. But again…I’m a smartie, so it won’t take too long I am sure. I would love someone who knows a bit about positive reinforcement training, as that is what will work best with me.
Here’s a secret…the folks at Willow’s Wings think I am so terrific and fun and sweet that they want to keep me here forever, but I am a happy, bouncy, playful little girl, and I love other dogs and try to play with them quite a bit, and since many of the dogs here at Willow’s Wings are paralyzed or blind or injured, my completely friendly, appropriate pouncy puppy playfulness too often accidentally scares them, and so this is not the right place for me to stay forever. That’s ok, they promise that they will find me a super loving, joyful and fun home, in which I will get to play with others and those others (people, or dogs, or cats) will enjoy it as much as I do!
Medically I am doing super well. I have now been spayed, had all of my vaccinations, am heartworm-negative, am back on the good anti-seizure medications, and am doing fabulously, with no seizures since getting back on the meds. And in case you don’t know about such things, the meds really aren’t too expensive for most people—around $30 per month plus whatever regular bloodwork needs to be done to monitor those meds.
