Pet-BrodyBrody is a young terrier mix that was transferred to Operation Kindness from a local shelter. He was adopted but his new family did not have enough time for him. Brody is a great dog with an upbeat personality. He is still young and needs lots of exercise and a regular outlet for his puppy energy. Brody would do well with an active individual or family. He still has some growing to do, as he is just seven months old. He would not be a good dog for an apartment because he needs room to run and play. Brody is such a happy and fun young guy, and he is sure to bring lots of joy to his new family. If you have the time and energy to keep up with an energetic young dog, come visit with Brody today to see if you are that special someone he is waiting for.
