Background Story:

Brooke was born in Afghanistan and was brought to a rescue in the region with her mother and baby sister when she was just one month of age. Her mom and sister didn’t make it, but survivor Brooke has grown into a beautiful girl thanks to the TLC from that rescue. Brooke is now 3 years old, and has been in the US for two years. She started in foster care in Virginia, and then made her way to a wonderful family in CT. They loved her, but their border collie did not, so Brooke joined us at the Sanctuary.

Brooke can run like the wind, leap small buildings and is super smart and loves her people. She can be selective with other dogs, but she has lived with dogs in the past. She loves to jump up on people and to give them her now famous Brooke hug, something we try to discourage, but at the same time she’s hard to deny when you are one of her favorite people.

Current Status:

Brooke has learned a couple of new training games to better help her cope when she sees other dogs that she does not trust, or when walking with new people that she hasn’t formed a bond with yet. We call them “Pattern Games” and they help her focus. Brooke loves to learn new things and explore new places, so she can put these new games into use.

Adoption Info:

Brooke is certainly a one-of-a-kind girl! Being rescued in Afghanistan, this Sight-hound mix has found herself in the US and looking for a home to call her own! Brooke can run like the wind, is very smart, and loves adventure! At 4.5 years old, Brooke takes a bit of time to warm up to new people but when she does, she’ll lean into you which is her way to let you know you’re "in". Her past has left her a bit leery of new things so knowing how to "read" dog language would be much appreciated! We have asked Brooke what she would like in her very own home and she feels she would like an adult home who has big dog experience. She also requests that she be the only animal in the home- no apartments or condos. She needs a fenced in yard (no electric fences) , lots of toys to enjoy and de-stuff, her very own bed, and people who love her sensitive side! If interested in meeting this sweet and perceptive gal, please call 860-242-9999 or email Helpline@OurCompanions.org.

Special Requirements:
