It was Brownie’s first time ever being in a household when he spent two weeks in foster care with the Analores.
“He was terrified at first,” Molly Analore told The Dodo. “He didn’t know what to do.”
Brownie received a second shot at a Colorado shelter after four adoptions there had failed. But in order to wait for transportation, he needed a temporary place to stay. Analore and her family filled that requirement.
As Brownie grew accustomed to being house-trained, the first few days were challenging. But as soon as the pup understood he was secure and surrounded by love, something in him began to shift. Brownie quickly mastered the art of expressing his requirements to his new family within just a few days.
“Eventually he would alert me if he had to go to the bathroom,” Analore said. “He would sit by the door and cry.”
Brownie’s usual communication styles were easy for Analore to pick up on, but one night, he did something wholly unexpected. The perceptive dog attempted to warn his new mother that she also needed aid instead of telling her that he did.
Before fostering Brownie, Analore started having episodes of lightheadedness and fainting. Analore began to feel ill on one of her nights with Brownie, and the devoted dog noticed it immediately away.
“He’s not big on cuddling a lot, but he just jumped right on my couch, sat next to me and started cuddling me,” Analore said. “I thought, ‘That’s a little strange,’ but then didn’t think anything else of it.”
Analore held Brownie for a bit before deciding to rest down in bed because she was still feeling under the weather. Brownie, who typically maintained a certain amount of distance, would not let Analore leave his sight.
“When I went to bed, he was outside my door screaming his head off, scratching at the door and headbutting the door,” Analore said. “That wasn’t normal for him. It was almost like he was trying to say, ‘Something’s wrong, let me in now.’”
Confounded by his actions, Analore promptly got out of bed and invited her attentive foster dog into the bedroom.
“He jumped right on my bed, sat next to me with his head on my chest, then once my heart stopped racing and I felt better, he just got up and left,” Analore said.
Analore claimed that Brownie had never previously displayed that behavior. He then stopped when her brief period of fainting was through.
“He just did it all on his own,” Analore said. “He’s such a good boy.”
As originally intended, Brownie moved on to his ultimate sanctuary after spending two weeks with the Analore family. His new shelter has him in foster care right now, but the Analore family wants to permanently reunite him with them.
“A dog like that only comes around once in a lifetime,” Analore said. “The connection was so strong.”
