Sally discovered that Brody belonged to the Mazzarella family who had just moved into the neighborhood. The family was grieving the death of their older dog, and had adopted Brody in hopes of moving on.

But they were surprised to see Brody leaving his own home and dedicating himself toward supporting Sally, as if he had sensed the elderly woman’s soul-sucking loneliness!

These days, Brody spends most of his time with Sally. He helps her tend to her garden, fetches her mail, and even hops into her car for grocery shopping.

Sally says she grew up on a farm filled with dogs back in Holland, and having Brody around has helped her reconnect with her roots and bring life to a full circle! What an endearing friendship!
