Brewster - 2 Years old - Male


Image Brewster has been in care with GRR for eighteen months and this boy has come as far as he can go living at HQ and needs a very special home to devote the time to this boy so he can eventually become a loving family member.
When Brewster was a young puppy he was seized from a situation where he was one of over 200 dogs. Brewster learned early in life how to survive in this huge pack. He guards his food yet can eat a bone while Ellie, his constant companion is in the run eating her bone. However, should a dog look his way while Brewster is eating his reaction is fierce. Watching Brewster over eighteen months has shown that he is best when sharing the run or paddock with females as this boy can be very dominant with other males.
In the time Brewster has been in care he has come to know that humans are the source of food and fun. He takes time to approach people, even his foster carer needs a few minutes every day for Brewster to remember that HQ is a safe place, but once over his fear this boy loves a belly rub. GRR is not sure what breed this boy has in him and in other circumstances he would not have been picked up from the RSPCA when other puppy farm dogs were being loaded into the car. Only that the foster carer knew what the outcome for this boy would be if he did not come to GRR, which is why he is with us today. Brewster deserved a chance and here is the opportunity for the right person to enjoy the pleasure of turning this boy’s life around.
Image The job this family will be taking on won’t be easy, it will be long with a few steps forward and many steps back and Brewster may always be fearful and his family will need to give Brewster the time and space to learn that he is safe and be prepared to accept him just the way he is. Brewster does not enjoy anything for the first time. He is fearful of everything. Coming in and out of doors, the microwave beeping, the sound and movement of the television, the different surfaces in a home, you name it Brewster is frightened of it. Brewster’s foster carer and those who help out at HQ agree that this boy needs constant one on one with someone who has spent time with dogs that have difficult behaviours. This boy is definitely not for a family in the suburbs as living on an acreage is what he knows and what he feels comfortable with.
