From: Texas
Brawn is a great big puppy who loves to dash around the yard like a deer on ice. He’s lovably goofy and awkward. He has never met a stranger, dog or person, and is always happy for company.
So far, none of his foster siblings are interested in being friends, but Brawn is trying hard and has some pretty awesome dance moves he tries out for them. He’s been around small dogs and big dogs; old dogs and young dogs and is great with them all. He knows how to give space and is submissive. He rarely barks and does not destroy anything, including his special and only friend, his stuffed Santa. He’s as still as a mouse in the bath and seems to even like the water.
Brawn is that one rescue in a million who makes you realize that he’s actually grateful to you for taking him in. You know that he realizes there’s a rough old world out there and he’s glad he’s not part of it any more. You won’t regret adopting Brawn. He lights up any room as easily as he lights up your heart. Brawn knows he is one lucky doggo getting to move to a place with snow, which we think he is going to LOVE.

Medical: When Brawn was first brought into rescue, he had some trouble controlling his bowels. The vet thinks this was caused when he was attacked by another dog near his tail. He has made tremendous progress. The combination of the right GI food, routine, and him getting frequent outside breaks has made vast improvements in this area. He can be given an Immodium for car rides or other times that he needs extra help. This condition in no way impairs his quality of life nor his mobility.Personality Notes:
We are still learning more about his bowel condition and have noticed a lot of improvements in his ability to control his bowels. Most of all, he needs to be able to go outside a lot and needs a family that can be understanding if he has a whoopsie.Because of this, he will need adopters who work from home or have flexible hours to come home during the day and provide him with a consistent potty routine.
