Your dog is rescue
Your dog is a boy
Birthday: Early May, 2008
Siblings: The Duchess of Lochenstein, a catahoula and another rescue; Ser Alister Black the hairless Chinese Crested and adopted; Gus Gus the barn cat (who may be a dog in disguise); Lady Helga the Colombian red-tailed boa; Sir Vladmir the Knight Protector, Champion of the Gerbils; and the birds - a pair of finches and a pair of parakeets
Favorite Food: Anything from a cow!
Favorite Toy: The louder the better. Right now the squeaky pink elephant takes the cake.
Favorite Place To Go: The San Marcos River for sun, girlies, and swimming!
Best Trick: Roll over. It doesn't sound that impressive, but Brick's a bit.. husky, and I'm referring to his weight.
Best Friend: The first time a stranger meets Brick, they're his new best friend, until someone else comes along.
Wildcard: Brick is a handsome boy and he knows it! When we come to work he hops up on any grooming table he can, poses, and moves on to the next accessible table.
Pet Peeve: His little sister, Duchess. Brick and Duch play tug, chase, and cuddle, but he's always finished before her and she tries so hard to get more playtime out of him!

Bio: Brick was adopted from Town Lake Animal Shelter in October of 2008. My husband (then boyfriend) agreed to drive me to the animal shelter as I'd finally reached a point in my life that I could provide health, love, and support for a dog.
We saw rottie puppies, cute boxer boys, and a shaggy Pyrenees that I still can't forget. I wrote down all their kennel numbers and ranked my list. As we were walking back to the adoption processing, my husband points out Brick, sitting so patient and quiet in his kennel. I agreed to add him, so long as I could ask about the other pups first. We went through the list of kennels, all the puppies having been adopted or on hold already, but Brick was still looking for a home, and we were welcome to take him out for playtime if we wanted.
He was so little and polite and quiet! Almost three years later, he's none of those things, but he has grown into a handsome, loving, wicked smart dog and I'm thankful every day for his company.
