Meet Miss Brooklyn!
This young girl is the sweetest pit bull-mix puppy you'll ever meet! She is 8 months old and came to us via owner-surrender. She had never seen a vet, was under-trained and possibly over-coddled, which left her with a lack of basic training, lack of confidence, and very loving, but clingy.
Despite her lack of veterinary care, we're happy to report Brooklyn is healthy, heart-worm negative and now fully vetted, thanks to Cody's Friends: shots, spay, and chipping - done!
And can I brag on this girl a little bit? She was reported as difficult to get into or keep in a crate...after two days of working with her, she now voluntarily crates up when asked, has never escaped her crate here, and even sits patiently in an open crate to wait for her good-night treat! She is doing well on potty-training and has had zero accidents in the house or crate. With some redirection and correction, she has learned to sit for petting, scratches and affection, rather than jump on her foster; she gets it completely right about half the time, regresses about 25% of the time for a close-up hug, and the other 25% you can actually see her start to jump and correct herself and choose to sit instead!!! So proud of her progress! She and her foster are working on establishing good boundaries and improving her self-confidence. And next, we tackle the leash!
Brooklyn is the biggest snuggler ever, but we're also building her ability to spend time alone quietly and/or just hanging out. These are big changes and a lot for a six month old to (re)learn, so Brooklyn will benefit greatly from a home with experience in establishing and maintaining structure and training (or willing to learn!), to help her become the great dog she's meant to be. And Brooklyn will absolutely be worth the investment...she is very sweet and loving, smart and curious, gets along with other dogs, has lived with and loved children and in only one week, is improving by leaps and bounds and has already made our "most-improved" list!
