Quick Bio:

January 1st 2007

He loves going for rides in the car. As soon as you open the door, he runs straight to the car door!

Don't lay too close to him on the floor, he needs a little of his own space to stretch out

Favorite Toy:
He absolutely loves playing outside with his soccer ball

Favorite Food:
Brady is definitely an Italian German Shepherd. He loves when pizza and spaghetti are added to his dinner

Favorite Walk:
Brady loves walk

Best Tricks:
Brady knows how to pass the soccer ball back to you with his foot, and if you say "use your nose" he will pass it back with his nose

Arrival Story:
We picked up little puppy Brady when he was just eight weeks old from a kennel in upstate Maine. It's hard to believe he was once so small, considering he now weighs 100 pounds!

Brady (yes, named after the great Tom Brady) is our loving, practically-human German Shepherd. He has just turned five years old and is beginning his second round of chemotherapy treatment for K9 Lymphoma at Tufts University. Brady was diagnosed with lymphoma this past July, just a month after losing his best pal Molly (our older German Shepherd who passed in June.) Brady was in full remission after a 17-week chemotherapy, and we were thrilled! Sadly enough, his lymphoma has just returned at a MORE advanced stage, and the only hope to save his life (as there is no cure for this devastating disease!) is to give Brady a novel immunotherapy (a telomerase vaccine) that showed a great promise in a recently published study. The vaccine can only be given to dogs in remission, which is more difficult to achieve when a dog has relapsed because cancer cells build resistance to chemotherapy with each round. As of now, Brady was lucky enough to have achieved the second remission, and we have a narrow window of opportunity to vaccinate him: if he relapses again before vaccination, it may not be possible to get another remission.
