Rescue Me: Brandy Looking For Her Forever Home

16 Aug


Brandy is a goofy 5 year old female pitbull mix who loves other dogs and is great with people. She is house broken, loves to walk, swim and play and is easy to walk. She is also a big fan of snuggles, belly rubs and playing with toys.  She needs a home that can offer physical and mental stimulation and would be best suited to a home without cats and with older children.   Brandy has watched many dogs come into the Vancouver SPCA and be adopted while she sits and waits for her  forever guardians to arrive.  The SPCA cannot believe this affectionate love bug is still in their care.   If you are interested in giving Brandy her forever home, or even a foster home while she waits for her forever home, the Vancouver SPCA would love to hear from you. To learn more about Brandy, contact the Vancouver SPCA at T: 604.879.7721 or by email at

As always, we are grateful to those willing to share this information with others so Brandy can find her forever home.

UPDATE: Brandy has found her forever home. She’s a very happy girl.
