Status: RESCUED!

Someone at the shelter said Brownie’s owner dropped him off before leaving for Xmas vacation. (Don’t start me.) The dude is positively majestic. Think of some active friends who might be looking for a hiking or running buddy. He was good on a leash.

My theory is that homeless and abandoned dogs are a lot like the “broken window syndrome” in low-income communities, and that initially small problems result in wide ripple effects. Stop them from getting worse, and an entire neighborhood, a city, a region, maybe even the world can be changed.
