Meet Brownie (aka as Mater)!  A MUCH better name for a pup whose personality mirrors the Disney character from the movie, ‘Cars’.

Just like the movie character, our Mater is extremely friendly, loving, selfless (he readily gives up bones and toys!), loyal and (to be honest) at times, a bit dim-witted. 

He has unconditional love for everyone/everything (although he WILL give a ‘warning bark’ when someone new enters his space but, the only person who should be scared is the burglar who doesn’t realize Mader’s looks don’t match his might!). 

He’a a bit clumsy/accident prone (so much so his foster family has had to invest in replacement dishes..lol..ugh).

He also has been ‘gifted’ with a vast knowledge of a wide variety of howls and whimpers and, impressively for just 5 months of age, manages to use all them effectively in his attempts to convey his feelings to his family (this also means he wouldn’t be a good choice for apartment-living). 

Although on the outside he may seem silly and a bit goofy, he’s actually really smart and catches on to things really quickly (he rings the bell to go out and even sits for you as soon as he comes inside). 

Take a look at this sweet video of Mater showing off some of his obedience training.

Above all he is a fiercely loyal and loving GREAT friend (true buddy/Velcro dog) to those who are lucky enough to share his world (his FAVORITE thing is to snuggle next to you and, if tired enough, showing off how loudly he can snore!).

The character Mater might not be a true story but this Mater is the real thing and he’s just waiting to ‘tow away’ his FUREVER family’s heart into the sunset of happy 2nd chances. 

Brownie (aka Mater) weighs 40 pounds (but is still growing) and is from a reservation in South Dakota.
