Hi there folks, my name is Brady! Sometimes my rescuers call me "Brady Monkey" (because I act like a total monkey) or sometimes they affectionately call me a "noodle head".
I'm about six and a half years old and I'm really people friendly and eager to please. I'm super smart too and can learn new things if you have treats and use positive reinforcement methods.
I've been having a challenge to getting adopted because of a couple of reasons. One is that I have seizures and need to be on anti-seizure medication every twelve hours, for life. I also need my bloodwork checked every six months (and that can get expensive).
But my seizures are considered controlled as long as I don't ever miss a dose of my medication.
Okay, well truly, the second challenge to me getting adopted is usually the deal breaker for most adopters. You see, I have separation anxiety. Not just the mild kind with a little whining or drooling or howling. I've got full on big time anxiety. Yep, it's true. Someone as sweet as me has a major anxiety disorder. I've been in a foster home that has to work their schedules around me, so that someone is always here to be at home with me. Or else I need to go with them when they go out.
I also guard my toys so if there are any other dogs in the home, the rule is no toys. Yep, that's right - all the dog toys in my foster home have been picked up and put away, especially because of me. I don't really miss the toys anyway, I'd rather have a doggie companion to play with. (my best friend at Camp Cocker Rescue, another doggie with severe anxiety, maybe that's why we get along so well, we understand each other!)
I know I'm not the easiest doggie to have, so I need a really patient and understanding adopter, who can accept me for who I am and not get angry or frustrated with me.
