I adopted my Brat from a rescue shelter, 8.5 yrs ago, when he was estimated to be about 3 yrs. He had sadly been abused & found abandon. He had been in the shelter (and foster care) for a long 1.5 yrs. He was extremely shy & timid, so while cute, he wasn't catching the attention of families. He was already housebroken & walked well on leash. It took him 4 days to stop hiding in my house, but once he came out to trust me, he has not left my side for a moment!!! I can get him to run around (and he runs graceful and FAST!), but he doesn't care for toys. It's like he's too smart for them (if I can't eat it, why chew on it?? Lol). He's obsessed with treats, licking & grooming himself, cuddling & kissing me. He's my snuggle buddy!! He has a unique underbite that's his most endearing quality; it's makes him smile all the time :) People love it.
