Brody is extremely shy but we are working on it. He is doing so much better. I think he is 3-4 years old. He just requires lots of consistent patience and a no nonsense approach. No coddling for Brody, he is learning that no matter what is going on, he is safe and sound. Not feeding into his fears has been the ticket.
He is not quite ready to join his family - but we think that with the right amount of love and exposure, he will be ready very soon. If you would like more information on Brody, please email our adoption coordinator, Dawn at Blackdogsrescue@icloud.com. If you want to follow his progress, please follow us on Facebook, Blackdogs Rescue.
