"Brooki (Kammi in shelter)"
Brooklyn, Brooki for short, came into my life three months ago. I adopted her seven months after we put down Reesie (Named Wheezi at Peggy Adams). I didn't think I would ever be able to love another animal with the same intensity. When I inquired about Brooki a few months prior, I was a bit apprehensive because I had learned she had severe separation anxiety when left alone. After much thought, I decided since we work out of the house, it would be an ideal situation to get Brooki accustomed to living here and then gradually leave her by herself. She has done extremely well and never really exhibited any anxiety. She is not left alone for long periods of time, but on the occasion that she is home for a few hours, she does really well. I would encourage anyone who is looking for that "special" animal to really find out about the them and make sure that you and the animal are a good fit. It is so sad when hearing about shelter animals who have been adopted, then brought back because "it wasn't a good or convenient fit". Brooki has helped me heal tremendously. The bond was immediate. She is an amazing dog who is very loving, gentle, full of life, and very willing to love everyone who lets her into their life. She has been an incredible asset to our family. I love her with all my hear and soul.
