ASPCA Happy Tail: A Furry New Roommate

Wednesday, November 28, 2012 - 12:45pm

When Alex Borghi was a bit tired of living solo in his apartment, he decided to find a four-legged roommate. But he didn’t want just any roommate. So Borghi met each of the dogs at the ASPCA Adoption Center in Manhattan, trying to find the perfect pooch with whom to share his home. He didn’t find a match at first, but after he saw Brad on the ASPCA website, he decided to go back to the Adoption Center to meet him.

Borghi decided that Brad, a beautiful tan-and-white pit bull terrier mix, was the best candidate for the job. He tells us Brad is adjusting very well to his forever home, and that he stays by his pet parent’s side at all times. It’s safe to say that these two are thrilled to share the apartment.

Plus, in addition to roommate and sidekick, Brad has another new role: He poses for lots of photos for his photographer dad. In just a few weeks, Borghi has taken plenty of adorable pictures of Brad, and this furry model seems to love posing for the camera!

Welcome to the club Alex of Pit Bull owners. Your life will never be the same. A Pit Bull's love is undaunting; and their loyalty has no bounds. Might want to read,"Because I'm a Pit Bull" a children's fiction book discussing the negative stereotypes that people have concerning Pit Bull's.


Congratulations on adopting Brad! Have fun taking loads of pics of your new friend! :)


I saw Brad in his kennel at the ASPCA and really admired his beauty - tan and white, very sleek, lovely face. I am so happy to know that this wonderful dog has found a wonderful companion - and vice versa. Congratuations to Alex and Brad. Brad looks so incredibly happy in the photo. How great!

Thank you for this great story highlight the great work ASPCA does and how wonderful shelter dogs are. As the mom of a Boxer-Pit mix, I love the positive press pit bulls are getting recently. They are truly loving, loyal dogs. Kudos to Alex for adopting from a shelter. May you and Brad have a long, loving relationship.
