Dog of the Week: Brosco

Hi, I am Brosco (A15543148), a friendy terrier mix who was found wandering the streets of Philadelphia all alone and was in the need for some food and love. I am approximately 3 to 5 years old, and have a beautiful light brindle coat, and my eyes even match my beautiful brindle coat.

If you dont mind me saying so myself, I am a very handsome boy and I am always being told how cute I am. I am a little anxious here at the shelter, but luckily, I have a wonderful Pen Pal who works with me during the week to teach me proper commands and manners.

Once I am out of the kennel, I love going for walks and giving some cuddles to anyone who comes my way. So far, I am walking well on the leash preferring to stay close to my Pen Pal, and in one day I learned the command “sit.”

I did meet some dogs and cats and passed those tests, and if you have any children under 8 years old or any resident dogs, please bring them to the shelter to meet me to make sure we are a great fit.

I am hoping to find my forever home with my Pen Pal’s help, which is making me feel less anxious. I have also attended some off-site adoption events and I heard that I have done well while attending the events.

I am really looking for a forever home, so why don’t you come down to ACCT and fall in love with me?  You wont regret it! I look forward to meeting you soon! Please feel free to email my Pen Pal at bricket815 AT
