Despite all of this, Brynn is still the sweetest girl, with soulful, hopeful eyes. She’s really coming out of her shell! Her foster says,

She didn’t know how to dog inside a house at first! Slick floors are still a little scary for her, but she’s such a happy girl and her personality just shines!

She's a big fan of naps, squeaky toys, and snuggles on the couch!
