South Pacific County Humane Society Pet Report: Brodie: Smart and sensitive dog needs some one-on-one TLC

<I>MELANIE EPPING photo</I><BR>Brodie: Loyal and smart

For reasons we will never know, this nice dog was surrendered by his family of five years to another shelter, on the day after Christmas (Merry Christmas, Brodie!).

This handsome dog is a kelpie, Aussie shepherd and cattle dog mix. Of the approximately 400 dog breeds in the world today, these three breeds are among the smartest, most loyal, and most trainable of dogs.

Brodie is five years old and absolutely reliable in the housebreaking department. He acts like a dog that just maybe doesn't know, from past experience, what kind of treatment to expect from humans. But one can see by looking in his intelligent brown eyes that he is very anxious to be someone's special and loyal companion.

This sensitive young dog would love an active lifestyle, and would be a wonderful friend for a single person who can spend quality time with him. He is very good with people, but not good with cats, so his new home needs to be a "feline-free zone." If you are looking for a special canine companion to enrich your life, come and meet Brodie.

St. Patrick's Dinner Auction Extravaganza is just around the cornerOur no-kill shelter receives no city or county support, and we rely on donations, adoptions, and fundraisers to care for needy animals. Our biggest fund-raising event, the St. Patrick's Dinner Auction Extravaganza is coming up March 15.

Tickets are $30 each, and a delicious Irish dinner catered by the fabulous Shoalwater Restaurant will be served. Tickets can be purchased at at 1517 Pacific Ave N, or at the shelter at 330 2nd St NE.

We are very grateful to have received some wonderful items for auction, but additional items would be very much appreciated. If you have something you would like to donate, please e-mail the event procurement chairwoman Marie, at, or leave a message for her at the Humane Society, 642-1180.

Please support the Humane Society by attending this enjoyable event. With just a little "wearin' of the green" on this evening, you can help us raise much-needed money to care for the animals and support our community programs.
