Brownie, an 8-year-old chow mix, spent most of his life tied up outside with his best dog friend in deplorable conditions. Their former owner finally decided to "get rid of them," and they were in such bad shape when they arrived at Pima Animal Care in Tucson, Arizona, that Brownie's best friend didn't make it.
After losing his best friend, Brownie went into shock. He laid on the floor all day refusing to move for anything - almost as if he had given up. Slowly though, he realized he was in a safe place and became very, very affectionate.
With such hardships in only 8 years of life, it's no wonder that sweet Brownie is a little on the anxious side.
