Brodie is an exceptional dog. The border collie and German shepherd crossbreed courageously endured an assault by his own mother when he was just 13 days old. The assault caused the puppy to become partially blind and have a permanently disfigured face. As a result, Brodie’s face looks somewhat like a work of art by Picasso, but he is even more endearing, captivating everyone with his generous heart and unyielding determination.
Thankfully, Brodie is now residing with his loving forever family, Amanda Richter and her boyfriend Brad Ames, and he is adored by almost everyone he meets. Brodie has an Instagram account with 159K followers, and he is currently undergoing training to become a therapy dog. Amanda expressed her desire to train him as a therapy dog, hoping that he can help others with disabilities. She also assured Brodie’s followers that he is as happy as ever.
Brodie’s mother attacked him when he was only 13 days old, causing severe cranial and facial injuries. As he matured, his jaw fused together, resulting in a disfigured face and partial blindness.
Initially, Brodie seemed to have found his forever family through adoption. However, his previous owner returned him to Old MacDonald Kennels in Alberta, Canada, citing that the pup was “too hyper.”
Luckily, Brodie soon found a new forever family who don’t care about his appearance and believe he was meant for them.
Brodie’s story touched the hearts of millions, but it was his new forever family, Amanda Richter, 30, and her boyfriend Brad Ames, 23, who were particularly moved.
After spotting a photo of Brodie online, Amanda Richter and her boyfriend Brad Ames instantly fell in love with him. They wasted no time traveling to the shelter to adopt him on the same day, and since then, they have been inseparable.
According to Amanda’s statement to Metro, he is highly energetic, but also highly intelligent. He has a healthy brain and can learn new tricks quickly, which indicates his intelligence. This lovely and courageous puppy is presently undergoing training to become a therapy dog, with the aim of assisting individuals with disabilities.
Brodie had been adopted by someone prior to joining his permanent family, but was returned because of his boundless energy.
Brodie’s mother is currently assisting him in his training to become a therapy dog, with the intention of supporting people with disabilities and visible differences. “All he required was someone to be persistent and patient,” according to Amanda. She also stated that Brodie is highly skilled and improving on a weekly basis.
