Meet Brownie! (hint: click for cute video!)
Brownie is the best lap dog at APA!.
She may not be teeny or fluffy or other adjectives that you’d normally associate with a lap dog, but she does manage to fit her petite pittie body in your lap in a sweet, snuggly ball of naptime goodness. And man does she love it there.
Brownie is possibly one of the most loving, affectionate dogs we’ve ever met. She is a professional snuggler and part of the inspiration behind a few of her fans learning to do canine massage. It’s Brownie heaven and she will spend at least an hour afterwards in a serene state of napdom, just to show you how much she appreciated the effort.
Not that she’s choosy about her snuggles. Brownie is perfectly happy with regular pets on the head and smooches to the face. She will also return those smooches with adorable enthusiasm as you can see… :-)
When Brownie first came to APA!, she was a very scared, pregnant momma dog. Snuggling was not likely a big part of her past. Nor were other favorite things like play time and walks and showing off tricks for new people friends.
She gave birth to her puppies and raised them in a foster home and, when they were ready to go to homes of their own, Brownie moved into the APA! Adoption and Resource Center as part of the Fresh Start program.
She was as beautiful and loving as ever but, as you can see from the photo below, was still feeling very unsure.
In the months since, Brownie has blossomed. We have loved getting to know this gorgeous cuddler and have been so impressed with the resilience, affection, and willingness to trust that she’s shown us. Gone is the shy momma dog and in her place is a confident beauty who is working on becoming a Canine Good Citizen.
To us, she’s already a snuggly specimen of canine perfection and we are ready to see her go home! In honor of Brownie’s love of the snuggle, her adopter will receive their very own gift card for a human massage!
