Facts about BRODY

  • Breed: Feist/Shepherd (Unknown Type) Mix
  • Color: Brown/Chocolate
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Male
Brody came to Blackdogs Rescue fearful and untrusting - with lots of hard work and love from our director, Brody is starting to learn that human are good and that love is what makes the world go around. Brody would do best in a home that has an experienced dog owner that would respect his need to have calm and quiet and a patient owner. His adoption fee is $175.00

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.
We think that with the right amount of love and exposure, he will be ready for a family. If you would like more information on Brody, please email our adoption coordinator, Dawn at If you want to follow his progress, please follow us on Facebook, Blackdogs Rescue.


About Our Rescue Group...

Blackdogs Rescue is dedicated to the plight of dogs and puppies in urgent need.. Most of our dogs come from high kill shelters where they have been scheduled for euthanasia. Some of our puppies are referred to us due to severe illness or injury. We are the last chance for many.
At Blackdogs Rescue we have a unique vision of rescue. Once intake protocols are complete and health permits, many of the puppies participate in off leash hiking on our many trails. Puppies develop good verbal recognition and recall, and that leads to the development of intelligent puppies. We work with all of our adopters to make good matches, pairing up puppies and dogs with families for the best success.
All of our dogs and puppies receive medical care from our trusted Veterinarians. Puppies are not adopted prior to 12 weeks to insure that all health issues have been addressed. All dogs and puppies are spayed/neutered, up to date on vaccinations and microchipped. We make sure all are parasite free. For adults, all are Heartworm tested negative as well. But we don't stop there, we also look at mental and behavioral issues and work to correct anything of concern prior to adoption. All dogs and puppies are tested with other dogs and cats and any concerns are made known on their individual listings.
We are very invested in each and every animal and with lots of one on one time, very familiar with each one's likes and dislikes.
Blackdogs Rescue is made up of volunteers who donate their time to saving animals. To contact Blackdogs Rescue, email us at or

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption process begins with an email to Application requests are forwarded on to our Adoption Coordinator, Dawn. Dawn sends out the applications and information on the process. You will always hear back from someone within 48 hours during business days. Approval can take up to a week. If approved, you become the approved adopter of a particular dog or puppy and are scheduled to be introduced at a public meet and greet, which is held in Hagerstown, MD. The adoption can be completed at that time. But if you discover that is not the dog or puppy for you, we are happy to continue helping you with your search.
Puppies begin their journey in Kentucky, but upon completion of their health care and preliminary evaluation and training, they are transferred to Maryland for adoption.
When contacting us via email, please include a phone number and location so that we may best serve you.
Our goal is to match up the right dog or puppy with the right person or family. But it is also to make sure that each and every one of our dogs or puppies finds a home committed for a lifetime.
All adoption fees go back to helping the dogs and puppies. We are an all volunteer rescue. They help cover the costs of getting them medically ready for adoption and allow us to help others in need.
If you are currently being considered for other puppies, please include that information when applying. Also, keep in mind that Adoption Meet and Greets, and Events can be very stressful on the puppies...schedule your date with all member and current dogs present to help make that final decision. Meet and Greets for the purpose of meeting the puppy can be scheduled but adoptions will not be completed that day.
