We see a lot of puppies at local shelters, and each of them have their own unique way of handling being in the sheltering environment. Some puppies run straight to the kennel door, tails wagging, tongues hanging out, as if they have no idea of where they are. Then there are dogs that cower in the background. They are terrified and you can feel their shut down desire to just disappear as they fly their little flag that says "please walk on by, and pay me no attention. ".
And then, there are dogs like Brienne. She was the perfect and appropriate behavior we like to see in a dog in a scary environment. She sat in the back of her kennel with her siblings, happy that we were paying her attention, but painfully aware that her loud and scary surroundings were not where she wanted to be. We love to see a dog with some common sense like Brienne had. Sensitive but not shut down....perceptive puppy.
Brienne is currently in a foster home with other dogs, and is kid friendly. We think that this pup would make a wonderful addition to a family. She likes to romp and play and has lots of love to give. Brienne’s adoption fee is $500 and will include her microchip, spay surgery, vaccinations, deworming, health certificate, and transportation Memphis to your area.
