My story

Athletic, smart, adventurous, goofy, can be playful but has a serious side. If this is what you are looking for as your next family member then Brody is the man for the job! His breed is listed as Doberman/lab but he hails from a rescue in TN so no promises!

Brody is now 6 years old and about 50 lbs, has been with his present owners since he was a pup, has had tons of training, has loved all of it, but his owners understand that Brody is not happy with the baby in the home. They have made the painful choice to find him a new home where he can thrive. That's where we come in!

What makes Brody the happiest? Lots of likes-chasing a ball, going on walks, hanging out in the yard and chasing the birds and squirrels. He loves the freedom of a large yard that is fenced -he has the joy of chasing the squirrels out and the squirrels make the silly choice to come back in! Hanging out on the back of the couch is also a fun thing so he can watch the world go by. The athletic side shows itself when he chooses to walk the deck railing to get a better view of that world!!

He does have some dislikes and this is where the serious side comes in. He would much rather be the one to give permission for being loved on and is very happy when his people respect his wishes. He is happy to spend his nights in his crate so that he can stretch out and have some alone time! He'll share a part of your bed too.

His wishes for a new home: if possible, lots of exercise; a big yard -fence a plus; comfy bed with a view; an adult home: prefers to be the only pet in the home.

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

To begin the adoption process, you can fill out an application for adoption by clicking on the "adoption" tab on our website,

The OC Adoption Program aims to find a pet who will be the best match for each adopter. To accomplish this we know each animal’s personality and needs and we get to know our adopters and their lifestyles.

OC provides our adopters with support from the start of the journey and throughout the animal’s entire life; including pre-adoption counseling, assistance while the animal is settling in and life-long support. Our goal is to find loving homes for our animals and to facilitate individualized adoptions that meet both the adopter’s and animal’s needs.
All adoption applicants are assigned a dedicated Adoption Caseworker to work with you throughout the adoption process. During this process you will be asked to complete an Adoption Application, and you can access them on our website,

How much does it cost to adopt and what’s included?
We do not have an adoption fee, but we greatly appreciate a tax-deductible donation to Our Companions at the time of adoption.
Cats: $75 or $125/pair
Kittens: $125 or $200/pair
Dogs/Puppies: $150

More about this rescue

Founded in 2002, Our Companions Animal Rescue is a Connecticut-based nonprofit organization that goes to extraordinary lengths to help animals in need today, while working to prevent animals from becoming homeless tomorrow.

We offer a variety of Adoption Services to meet the needs of homeless pets in Connecticut. We know that a proper home exists for most animals- it just takes patience, resources and a commitment to find it. Our Companions offers virtual adoption programs so pets can stay in their original homes while we search for a new family, as well as adoption at the Ashford Sanctuary and regular pet meet-and-greet days at the Valerie Friedman Program Center centrally located in Manchester, CT. Adoption meetings are scheduled by appointment after the application screening process is completed.

In addition to adoption services, we are also involved in political advocacy; broad spay/neuter efforts such as TNR (Trap, Neuter, Return); humane education; and positive reinforcement dog training. It’s a long-term, comprehensive approach to ending pet homelessness and suffering.

Interested in volunteering at Our Companions? We have many different volunteer positions and opportunities at our program center and sanctuary. Read more about our volunteer program here:
