Happy Tails: Brookyln!

At first she was a foster for the Clear the Shelters event back when we had the Everyday Adoption Center in Plymouth Meeting. That was August of 2019. She has been at ACCT since July 18, 2019, making her a long term resident at that point. She made a huge fuss on her kennel, barking and jumping, and when potential adopters would take her out, she wouldn’t even pay attention to them. She just sniffed the ground. I thought getting her to open up would be a nice little project so I took her home. Once we got home, I sat on the floor with her. She sat in my lap, gave me kisses, and I knew I was done for! I adopted her at the CTS event and haven’t looked back. My baby girl was estimated to be 4 years old then, and now is about 8. She sleeps in my bed every night and demands to go under the covers (so I have to allow it). She likes to be touching me. My parents adore their grandpup! She loves training and working for food. She earned her Canine Good Citizen title from the American Kennel Club in August 2020 and over the summer she became a certified therapy dog with Therapy Dogs International! We go to the VA Hospital in Philly and their Community Living Center, which is their nursing home facility. She adores all people and is so sweet, mellow, and gentle. I cannot say enough good things about her. I love that my ACCT alum is such a certified Good Girl and helping people. See? You CAN get amazing and good dogs from a shelter! Brooklyn here is proof. I love her more than I can say.
