Brownie had never been in a household before when he spent two weeks in foster care with the Analores.”At first, he was terrified,” Molly Analore told The Dodo.”He had no idea what to do.”Brownie was given a second chance after four failed adoptions at a Colorado shelter.But he needed a temporary place to stay while he waited for transportation.Analore and her family met that criterion.The first few days were difficult for Brownie as he adjusted to being house-trained.But as soon as the pup realized he was safe and loved, something in him began to shift.Within a few days, Brownie had mastered the art of communicating his needs to his new family.
“Eventually, he’d alert me if he needed to go to the bathroom,” Analore explained.”He’d cry and sit by the door.”Analore was used to Brownie’s usual communication styles, but one night he did something completely unexpected.Instead of telling his new mother that he needed help, the perceptive dog tried to warn her.Analore began experiencing lightheadedness and fainting spells before adopting Brownie.Analore became ill during one of her nights with Brownie, and the devoted dog noticed right away.”He’s not a big cuddler, but he just jumped on my couch, sat next to me, and started cuddling me,” Analore explained.”I thought, ‘That’s a little strange,’ but didn’t think much more about it.”
Analore held Brownie for a few moments before deciding to rest in bed because she was still sick.
Brownie, who usually kept a certain amount of space between himself and Analore, would not let her out of his sight.”He was outside my door screaming his head off, scratching at the door, and headbutting the door when I went to bed,” Analore explained.”That was out of character for him.It was almost as if he was saying, “Something’s wrong, let me in now.”Analore jumped out of bed, perplexed by his actions, and invited her attentive foster dog into the room.”He jumped right on my bed, sat next to me with his head on my chest, and then as soon as my heart stopped racing and I felt better, he just got up and left,” Analore explained.
Analore claimed that Brownie had never done anything like that before.He then came to a halt when her brief period of fainting was over.”He just did it all by himself,” Analore explained.”He’s such a sweetheart.”Brownie returned to his ultimate sanctuary after spending two weeks with the Analore family, as planned.His new shelter is currently placing him in foster care, but the Analore family wishes to permanently reunite him with them.”A dog like that only appears once in a lifetime,” Analore explained.”There was such a strong connection.”
