Brody's House was founded by Dawn Dickman and her aunt, Jill Dickman, in honor of Dawn's beloved cocker spaniel. Brody was a special soul. Whether at home with his family or meeting strangers on his many adventures, Brody drew everyone to him. There was a quiet gentleness about him that wrapped around you and made you feel safe and loved. We wish everyone could experience what it was like to know him. We wish the whole world could feel like Brody's House.
