Changing Lives … One Tail at a Time …


This gorgeous 3 year old 54 lb Australian Shepherd/Chesapeake Bay Retriever mix turns heads everywhere he goes because of his striking markings. Gentle Brownie was left behind when his former owner moved, and he was surrendered to a shelter. This quiet guy is shy but does take some reassurance from his humans, and he likes being kissed and cuddled once he knows and loves you ( and once you’ve given him treats, which are his favorite thing!)

Brownie is making good progress in his foster home where he is experiencing patience and kindness which seems new to him. Because of his timid nature, he would not do well in a home with young children and he needs a physically fenced yard. He is polite with cats and adores other dogs. In fact, Brownie gains confidence from the happy canine companions in his foster home, so he requires a dog buddy in his forever home.

Brownie is a smart boy who knows “sit” and has excellent leash manners. This handsome guy will be a gentle and loving companion in a calm home with a dog friend who can help show him he doesn’t need to be afraid.
