When my husband and I first decided to adopt through Brookline, we had no idea what to expect.  We were connected with a new volunteer to be interviewed.  Carol was very thorough with her interview questions and follow up questions if something needed clarification.  We told her from the beginning that we were interested in Wrangler, a 4 year old black lab that was not yet available.  Once he became available for adoption, Carol sent over our application to the foster family with a wonderful note about our family.  We were thrilled when Carol called and said he was ours!  We set up the meet and greet for that weekend.  When we first saw Wrangler, he seemed very skittish and unsure of nearly everything.  He met our resident 7 year old German Shepherd Zivah, and they got along well.  Once the paperwork was signed, we drove home to start learning about the new addition to our family.

Wrangler was an amazing dog from the start.  He wasn’t afraid to explore his new home and learn from his “sister.” He quickly discovered the bed and the couch!  The foster dog blog helped us get to know Wrangler before bringing him home.  We knew his story.  We knew his challenges.  We knew he was learning new things every day.  We loved having access to that information prior to meeting him.  It’s a great section of the Brookline website.

I inundated Carol with pictures and videos of Wrangler’s new adventures.  She wrote back on every single one with encouraging compliments and some questions.  Although Carol was new to Brookline, she fell into the rhythm of her volunteer role quickly.  She’s very friendly and made us feel at ease throughout the adoption process.

I have started recommending Brookline to anyone who asks about Wrangler’s adoption.  This organization is amazing and I’m so glad it was recommended to me by Lisa at Leader of the Pack Canine Institute.
