From the moment I greet Brooklyn at her cage, her eyes light up, knowing that we’re about to go on an adventure! With ease, I get her out of her kennel and we make it to the outside door and she is ready to go! Brooklyn is a little explorer, investigating every interesting smell we pass, seeing what she can find. When she is excited, she pulls slightly, as if to say I’m on a mission! But she does listen to my commands, telling her that there is no rush, (she knows how to sit and stay!) and that she can take her time to find what she is looking for. And sometimes… that is a back scratch! She takes a few breaks from her quest to get in some cuddles and petting, and then off we go again in search of a mystery treasure! Brooklyn is an amazing girl, sweet, smart and fun and she would love to find a sidekick to go on adventures with her and take on the world!

Brooklyn lives with adults and children. Brooklyn loves attention from everyone. She loves kids and the owner says she knows to be gentle with them. She will usually jump up on adults, but not children.
Brooklyn has lived with a cat before without incident. The owner believes she would be okay living with a cat because she is playful and relaxed around them. Brooklyn has never lived with another dog, but is well socialized with the by going to the dog park. She hasn’t been to one in weeks because of the cold weather.
Brooklyn is an inside dog with a very high activity level. She isn’t bothered when you touch her food bowl while eating, when you take her rawhide or bone away, or when her toy is taken away. She doesn’t mind baths and isn’t bothered by unfamiliar people approaching her, her family, or home. She is afraid of her nails being but and will pull her feet away and struggle. She follows her owners around when they are home and she sleeps in her dog bed. When left alone Brooklyn is well behaved. Brooklyn isn’t bothered by loud sounds like fireworks or storms.

Behavior: Average Home
Brooklyn came to us as an owner surrender on 03/1/15. It was reported by the previous owner that Brooklyn has lived with both children and adults. She is described as playing gently with the children and will only jump on the adults. The previous owner stated that Brooklyn is well socialized with other dogs from going to dog parks, and has lived with a cat without incident. Brooklyn allowed the assessor to conduct all of the tactile items of the assessment without displaying any signs of aggression. She proved easy to handle when chewing on the toy item, but only displayed minimal interest in both the food and rawhide items. Brooklyn approached the helper dog by rushing in with very playful body language.
