Brodie a very unique looking and very relaxed, well behaved dog. Brodie had a growth on his eye that was causing him pain, but it has been removed. He also had a broken tail, so the poor guys tail bent down toward the ground. The vet decided it would be best to amputate his tail, so now he has a stub for a tail. I am certain it will not stop him from wagging his whole body when he is happy though. He is a conversation piece everywhere he goes.
He is a relaxing pet. He is very, very smart and learns most things after only one or two corrections. He walks almost perfectly on a leash, waits to get his food until I tell him he can have it, he plays with my female German Shepherd very well, and is quiet in the house. He is not a big barker, and is housebroken. Brodie does appear to have minor separation anxiety that he shows by whining when he is crated or blocked from being with me. If I go tell him to stop, however, he does. He does not need to be crated once he acclimates to his new environment. He is only crated now because there are multiple small dogs in the house and he is being slowly introduced to them. I gave him a Kong with peanut butter or a toy with food in it that he has to think about how to get the food out and that stops the crying too.
On walks, he does very well and listens perfectly until we get within a few feet of another dog. He pulls and stops listening to verbal commands, but has not shown any aggression towards the dogs. I believe someone with some bully breed experience would be better for Brodie. He would need very slow introductions to other dogs to prevent any problems from occurring. Due to Brodie's strength and how rough he plays, I would recommend no smaller dogs or cats live with him. I have not observed any aggressive behavior from him, but he should never be thrown into the mix with other dogs without a proper, slow introduction. If you prevent problems in the beginning, it will mean less problems later on.
In the yard at home, Brodie watches everything but rarely barks. He plays with my dog and sits in the sun watching the world go by. He loves to meet new people and is very laid back when he does. He does not jump and is not overwhelming, but approaches and puts his wet nose on your hand. In the house, he plays with his toys, rolls around on the carpet, and comes to get ear scratches. He looks out the windows and watches what is going on, but has not barked inside either. He likes anything soft to lay on, a blanket or his bed and to be near his person/people.
Brodie has so much potential and is one of the most laid back, well rounded dogs. Someone willing to take him to doggy classes would really see him shine. I believe he would really excel at obedience and would learn new things very quickly. If you are interested in Brodie please go to LastDayDogRescue.org and fill out an application.
