Brody is a little Shih Tzu who was mistreated, neglected, and then abandoned by his former family. When we first saw him, there were clear signs of a history of abuse, and we suspect that he had been raised with a lot of negative reinforcement. He had a small wound near his right eye which is very likely the result of trauma, and we suspect that his family had beaten him prior to abandoning him. Thankfully, Brody's vision is perfectly intact, and so are his spirits! He was extremely frightened and aggressive at first, and we understood his fear -- after all, this poor had never experienced a kind hand or gentle touch from a human being in his entire life! Despite the pain of his past, however, Brody is a little trooper who has already made a HUGE improvement in only a matter of days. He is slowly opening up to us and once he has fully recovered, we are hoping to find this handsome, 2 year-old boy the loving home he truly deserves!
