Pat and Brady

Meet Pat and Brady

Retired and widowed, Pat was looking for a new companion. She knew the value of a good dog; her pal Chloe passed away a year ago. Pat tells us when she saw Brady at the Humane Society, she couldn’t resist. “He is very loving, follows me everywhere, and is extremely smart. I am looking forward to many rewarding years with Brady. He will definitely keep me young, as he is full of energy!”
