Brewster - in Maine's Info...
I am already neutered, housetrained, and up to date with shots.
November 2013 Brewster is taking classes with our friends at Finish Forward Dogs (www.finishforwarddogs.com) and is doing great learning to control his impulses and show his smart brain! Brewster can be nervous at first meeting with new humans and new dogs, but once he knows and trusts you he becomes your snuggle buddy. In his foster home he has two dogs smaller than him and they are buddies. He has been with cats and been fine. He is housetrained and crate-trained and loves to dive under the covers with you. He would like being an only dog, but could also live with some compatible canine buddies. He needs a good leader that will help him remember the rules but also who continues to help him gain confidence.
Brewster is not a super big fan of his crate but has learned it's just a fact of life and he deals with it. When you tell him it's time for bed he goes right in after a "bedtime biscuit" and settles right down. He is very food motivated so teaching him new things is easier with food. He has many terrier tendencies so a new home with terrier experience would be a big plus.
Brewster is in a new foster placement with two canine buddies that are smaller than him and he is loving life - snuggling with the humans, learning to meet new people and dogs with comfort, and having fun!
Sweetie pie Brewster was returned to us because it was too hard for him to adapt to big city life in Boston. He is back with us in foster care and doing great without all the hustle and bustle. When he first meets new dogs he has to act all big and brave but before long he is playing chase with them. We are going to work on socializing him some more but if you have a quieter lifestyle and are ready for a snuggle buddy, Brewster may just be your tiny little guy. He likes to get right under the covers with his humans.
Brewster is a little cutie who thinks he is a big dog. He loves attention from humans and needs reminders that it's Ok to share that attention when other dogs are around. He will stand up as tall as he can to be sure you notice him ; 0 ) He will follow his humans everywhere and he loves to snuggle on the couch or in bed. He can be hesitant meeting new people but once they are "sniff-approved" he is fine. He is a very smart, social, and trainable little guy. He is quite food motivated so he needs to be fed separately from other dogs.
Brewster is fine with the cats in his foster home - if they run, he will chase them but when they stop running he puts the brakes on too. It's a pretty funny sight!
Brewster's ideal home would be filled with attention from humans - he could live with other dogs or as an "only child" - he is crate-trained and housetrained, and needs a good leader who will make sure he follows the rules, and one that doesn't baby him because he's tiny and cute.
Wouldn't you like to add this guy to your family?!
