Hello! This is my foster dog Brewster. He is a very loving, obedient, playful pitt mix. He is about 2-3 years old, and still has that spark of playful puppy in him. He’s big in size but knows he is not the dominant one. He listens to commands, only chews his toys, he is great on the leash, doesn’t beg for food at the table, and wants nothing more than to be at your side at every moment. He’s also protective of his owners. Within the first day or so he developed this sense of loyalty. He is laying his head on my lap on top of my arms as  I type this. He is such a good dog, and I’m not just saying that. He is more well behaved than the family dogs I’ve had for years (they live with my dad).

Now that I’ve moved into my own place, I really wanted a dog. I know that I cannot afford proper care for one, nor can I keep one long term with my dreams of traveling. That is so unfair when people selfishly get a dog and then bounce because they didn’t think it through. I wanted to help a shelter dog, and the best way to have all of these things is to foster. So two weeks ago, my girlfriend and I went down to the Brookhaven Animal Shelter. They desperately needed fosters due to much needed reconstruction of old kennels.  

I’m suprised this handsome guy had been in that shelter for over a year. I dont know his whole story. He has some big scars on his legs, and some mental scars as well.  He shudders at the sound of an opening beer can and runs away, and is fearful of you when you pick up a shoe to put it on. I’m sure you can put those two together…

My girlfriend and I have been working with Brewster every day on proper training and good habits. We taught him sit, lay down, and come. He knows not to jump on the bed, jump on you, or bite when he plays. He is, however, allowed on the couch. And that is where he loves to lay all over you like he is a ten pound lap dog. We use positive reinforcement and smother him with love. 

It saddens me to think that this loyal, loving dog, who wants nothing more than companionship, had to sit alone day after day in a cage, with an occasional walk or petting if he was lucky.  And this shelter does a good job, it was his best option. It’s just that there are so many dogs just like Brewster whose best option was to be in the shelter than on the street or abused in a home.

I love this dog so much that I am determined to find him another loving home.  We would keep him if we could, but proper care is too expensive and we can barely feed ourselves. 

Please reblog this, show your friend, something to help Brewster find a home!
