When my family of four lost our old man Basset Hound when he crossed the Rainbow Bridge, it took us time to be ready for our new furry family member.

When it was time, I headed to HSHV intending to adopt a young adult dog. Brownie sure changed my mind. He was polite and calm for a little puppy, and I thought, “Why not play with him a little?”

Well, that was it. Stole my heart. He has been wonderful — from potty training to sleeping through the night and basic training. He is smart and willing to learn. I could not have asked for a better addition to our family. The picture is how pleased he was to graduate his basic puppy training class.
