Brogen was my sons dog. Due to the fact my son worked 24-7, Brogen was never trained. Since I've had him, he is learning basic commands. He hates cats. Gets very nervous with children. He is very hard to walk. I live in Philadelphia. I don't have a big yard. And I can't walk him. Brogen also has a disease which is in remission. But he will need vet care. It's called masticatory muscle myositis. Please look up this disease. I have contacted a holistic dr. Brogen is treated with holistic medicines. He hasn't been on any medicines in a year. He a great dog. A lot of energy. He has a lot of toys. Loves toys. We play tug of war. That's good for his jaw. You would never know he has mmm. Loves baths. Especially on hot days. Loves being brushed. Doesn't mind getting his nails done. And he loves being outside. He's a big old loveable bear.
