Brownie appeared in the area in September 2009. she was a feral dog and we could never get anywhwere near her. She did learn though that we would put food by the gate for her. Months later we saw that she was pregnant and were worried that she would have her pups in the forest and they too would be feral. We managed to coax her through the gate and she later gave birth to a single pup in the cellar. Brownie now lives with the dogs downstairs. She will greet us and jump up for a fuss but if you ever try to do anything with her she goes in to a total panic so would not be suitable for adoption.
