Brody may soon be going to his new home | Forgotten Friends

He tested positive for Chagas, the 'Kissing Bug' disease and is undergoing treatment for it right now.

BULVERDE, Texas — UPDATE 11/30

A KENS 5 viewer saw Brody's story and said he is exactly the type of dog they are looking for and wants him to join their family.

There is just one catch... Brody has tested positive for Chagas, the 'Kissing Bug' disease, and is now being treated for it. As soon as he gets the all clear, he will be able to join his new family.

------------------------------------------

Our "Forgotten Friends" series showcases a dog or cat each week that has spent a lengthy time at an area shelter, just waiting for someone to notice them and bring them home to love. 

Brody is an almost 6-year-old Catahoula mix who has been brought back to the Bulverde Area Humane Society twice now over the last three years, through no fault of his own!

The first time he was adopted, the owner decided to sell his home and move in with his daughter, who already had five cats. Brody does not like cats at all! So that was no bueno for Brody. Back to the shelter he went.

The second owner lost his job and couldn't care for him after that. So again, Brody bounced back to the shelter.

Brody is such a good boy! He knows how to sit and to shake and other basic commands. He's very smart and is housebroken as well.

"He loves to go on walks and hang out with his people," said Penny, the volunteer in charge of dogs at Bulverde Area Humane Society. "He is also just as happy to binge watch Breaking Bad with you, too." 

He knows basic commands and is housebroken.

Like most dogs, Brody is afraid of thunderstorms and fireworks. 

He would do best in a quiet home with no cats. He seems to like other dogs, but Penny thinks he would probably prefer it if he were your only pet. 

"He just wants to be your one and only," said Penny. "This old guy deserves a stable home."

Third time is the charm! Let's find Brody the perfect match.
