UPDATE: JULY 4, 2018
Brownies story is sad.  He entered our shelter on 4/27/18 just after his owner died.  From what we understand, he and his man lived alone together and were very tightly bonded.  Everything in Brownies life changed when his best friend died, and Brownie is still depressed, worried, and bewildered. 
Brownie is a very nice yellow Lab (mix) that is 4 years old and weighs 58 pounds.  He has a nice, long and sleek body and he needs to gain a few pounds.  At first, he wouldnt eat at all until we put some hot dog bits on top of his food and held his food bowl for him.  He would then eat a few bites and stop to kiss us a little bit and receive some love before he took his next few bites.
Brownie is a GOOD BOY that is STARVING FOR ATTENTION and he really seems to like all people.  Once you pet him, his excitement is over the top.  He has a little trouble keeping your fingers out of his mouth, but doesnt chew anything else around the house.  If you take him outside he wont pull on the leashit is just really hard to get a leash on him in the first place because he is a very wiggly boy.
Brownie now plays with toys, tossing them up in the air and catching them.  He likes to run and play with us out in the big yard tooand he wants people to be with him when he is out there.  If people arent with him, he stands at the gate hoping for a companion to join him.  He brings us sticks and flirts with us when he asks us to try to get them.  He loves squeaky toys and invites us to get them too.  He will run to get a ball and sometimes bring it back to us.  He likes affection even more than he likes receiving treats.  Once we play with him for a while, he will lay down next to us and relax. 
Brownie doesnt really know how to act around other dogs; he just barks in their faces.  Since this tends to make the other dogs nervous and aggressive, Brownie would prefer a house without other animals. 
- He is clean in his room and does his very best to avoid soiling his floor.  As soon as he gets outside he will pee for a very long time.  This tells us he was probably house trained in his previous home, though he did have a couple accidents in a recent foster care home. 
 - He does not appear to be a digger or a climber.
- He does not destroy soft things in his room.  He sleeps on a blanket and loves to play with soft toys and rawhide chews there.  He didnt destroy things inside his foster care home either. 
- He is a big, energetic dog and he does need an outlet for his energy. 
- He loves to be WITH people and might be a dog who would hang around with you while you did outdoor chores, etc.
Brownie is a dog that seems to follow a persons lead; probably because he and his person were very close.  In time, Brownies heart will heal and he will be totally open to being someone elses Best friend and good boy.  For now, he is simply doing his best to adjust to the fate his life has given him.  If you have compassion for a broken hearted dog like Brownie, please consider adopting him.
No chickens, please!  (He is a little too interested in chickens to be trusted around them.)
