    Howdy! My name is Brocket!

    I’m currently hanging out at AARCS while I wait for my turn to find a family to call my own! You see, I had an unfortunate run-in with a porcupine and I also needed a dental and an eye removal on top of that, so I’m taking some ‘me’ time to properly recover! With a bit of time and some much-needed TLC, I’ll be ready to go before you know it! I was not the biggest fan of some dogs in the past, but I was also not feeling well at the time, so I could possibly live with a calmer dog if you gave me time to relax and settle in on my own terms. I am not the biggest fan of being alone, so I would prefer someone who is home more often and able to help me through this. I have been started on anti-anxiety medication to help me settle in to my new home but I will likely be able to be weaned off these eventually. I’m a sweet guy that needs to work on his confidence, but with some patience and lots of positive reinforcement, I know that I’ll come out of my shell and show everyone what a charmer I am!
