Meet Max: He is a Brittany Spaniel-Beagle mix on a mission to find rescue dogs, like himself, a loving forever home.
NBC4 Today Weekend Anchor Hattie Hawks and her husband adopted Max from a small Central Ohio rescue called Pets Without Parents. Every week, Max and Hattie introduce viewers to other rescue dogs in search of forever homes.
This week, Hattie and Max stopped by the Union County Humane Society to meet Brooklyn, a young Border Collie mix who is ready for her forever home.
Brooklyn is one easy-going puppy. She is just shy of being one year old, and is already proving she is a good dog.
“[She’s] not a super high energy dog, probably more of what we would consider medium energy for a puppy,” Jim Alloway, director of the Union County Humane Society, said. “She gets along great with other dogs, gets along great with kids. She’s all-around just a wonderful dog.”
Brooklyn weighs in around 30 pounds, and being a Border Collie mix, she probably won’t get much bigger. She is fun, easy to walk and loves to play in the water.
Union County Humane Society is one of the many area shelters participating in NBC4’s annual Clear the Shelters event. They will have an open house complete with food, drinks and dogs. They will even have lowered adoption fees, making it the perfect time for you to pick out your new furry friend. Right now, they have 40 dogs ready to find their forever home.
The Clear the Shelters event takes place on Aug. 18. For a complete list of participating shelters in central Ohio, tap or click here.
