We adopted Brownie in October and renamed her Ellie. She was incredibly shy and timid when we brought her home. She was afraid of everything and everyone. Over the past 8 months she's become an entirely new dog. She now LOVES snuggles, pets, and playtime. She trusts new people enough to let them pet her. Best of all, she smiles! She is such a sunshine in our lives and it's been so rewarding to see her let go of her fear and let people love her.
