Brice and his brother, Bruce, came out of a horribly abusive situation in South Dakota. Brice was very, very afraid of people when he got to HUA and we weren't sure if we were going to be able to completely gain his trust. We worked long and hard with him, telling him and showing him day by day that he was worthy of love and respect. All of that work paid off and Brice is now a totally new dog. He absolutely adores people and greets everyone with a happy, contented smile. He has mastered his leash training and has perfected basic commands such as "sit" and "shake." He likes very much to show off his skills and wants to please us in all ways. He has also convinced himself that he is a lap dog and snuggles up to staff and volunteers every chance he gets. Dogs like Brice remind us daily of why we do what we do. We are so very proud of his achievements and grateful that he decided that we are loveable and trustworthy friends.
UPDATE: Brice has been cat tested. To be honest, he failed miserably. He thinks herding (and irritating) cats is big loads of fun. He had a blast. The cats? Not so much.
