Brooklyn is a special girl. She is a 4-year-old boxer, Staffordshire terrier mix. When she arrived she was severely underweight and had a skin infection. Even so, she was a bundle of love, soliciting pets and giving kisses all around.

She quickly became a staff favorite. She has now gained weight and confidence, and we have learned more about her personality. She loves to play ball and tug-of-war. She wiggles at meeting new people, and she is goofy and active. We are looking for a terrier experienced home, with older kids due to her jumpy behaviors.
