Special Needs Brownie Needs His Home!

DONATIONS ARE TAX DEDUCTIBLE :)

Brownie was a backyard dog whose owner dumped him at the Austin Animal Shelter after he was hit by a car. The Austin Animal Center saved his leg but he has a deformed paw and permanent limp. Brownie arrived very thin, with many scars, heartworm positive, and a very bad coat but, in true doggie spirit, he quickly bonded with staff workers and became a staff favorite.

Unbelievably, Brownie stayed in the shelter for almost a year!! He officially became a "Hard Luck Hound" and one of the longest stays in the shelter!! When his "time was up", I found some very kind folks at Dog Camp who generously kept Brownie for 5 long months until my own foster dog was adopted.

Finally, I brought my boy home! He was an absolute angel in the house. We were going to keep him with my 2 other dogs when the big problem arose -- Brownie started guarding us. He wouldn't let any other male in the home.

He is NOT an aggressive dog. He's only doing what some human, who dumped him, taught him. He loves his people deeply and wants to protect them. Sadly, this sweet, affectionate dog is not adoptable.

We have a GREAT solution to save Brownie but we need your help!

My friend, Adette, who runs I Once Was Lost Animal Advocacy (www.pawsitively.org) want to build a "sanctuary for one" for him where he can remain close to his human and canine friends.

If we can raise enough money for a small building, which, will be partitioned in half for other dogs in need of rescue, Adette's non-profit will finish it out and fence a nice yard. Brownie will get daily walks in her 9 acre woods and plenty of love! It would be so amazing if Brownie could finally settle in here!!

Brownie is one of the saddest cases. . . He just can't seem to catch a break . . . . Can you please help turn this sweet boy's luck around and help give him the forever home he deserves?
