Brent is one of our new arrivals. He is about 2 years old, weighs 50 pounds, and seems to be a Foxhound (mix). He is very sweet but VERY SHY here in his new environment.
He has a very cute face but it is easy to see the worry behind his eyes. When we visit him in his room, his tail is often between his legs and he keeps a very close eye on us. We can’t imagine why he is as tentative and afraid as he is BUT he doesn’t seem to have a mean bone in his body.
Brent really perks up and has a great time when Scott goes in to clean Brent’s room first thing in the morning. We have no idea why “that event” seems to be a moment when Brent can relax, but it is. Brent also enjoys the company of his roommate Vixie/Magnolia very much.
We’ll write more about Brent him as we learn more. For now, we can tell you he is a really nice dog and we are working with him to help bring him out of his shell. From what we can tell, Brent would do best in a calm home, with a securely fenced yard and another dog or two to keep him company.
GOOD WITH DOGS.
