Brandie D4501

Poor Brandie (see my other photos & watch my video) was neglected, matted, thin, had no vet care, and lived in a backyard. She was shy and nervous at the shelter and hid in the corner of her cage. With time staff were able to take her out and carry/pet her. She was fine with other dogs but too distracted to interact. She has had no training and is under-socialized. She needs time to get healthy with holistic/fresh foods, learn home training and get groomed. More info. to come while she gets TLC at her foster home.  NOTE:  She needs a very experience adult home with yard.  No kids.  She has fear issues.

8/24/20 update: Brandie is very scared at her foster home and will growl when approached by them or their small dog. She needs time to decompress, get healthy, learn "home living" and to trust people. She will not walk on leash. Needs grooming and then her spay surgery. Brandie will need weeks to month of rehab so she will not be available for a few weeks to month. No apartments for her. She needs experienced adult home with attached backyard for potty biz.  No apt.  In a few weeks, when she feels safe, and we learn more about her personality, we will contact matching applicants.  She needs a very experienced guardian and adult home only.

9/7/20 update:  Video of her finally feeling safe and happy. Still using pee pads and learning house-training. She is great with husband. Still afraid of collar and won't walk on leash. Need to work on house-training to go to yard. Need very patient and experienced guardian. She growls at the foster home's dog still. So doesn't seem dog social.

**Note: Adoption in SF Bay Area Only**
