“Rowdy,” a feist and rat terrier mix, had a rough start in life, but Brenda Overman, a Silver Inventory Specialist in the Silver Inventory Department at Replacements, Ltd., soon came to his rescue.
Rowdy was taken home by a family who did not treat him well and later returned him to Brenda’s father, a dog breeder. Once Brenda saw Rowdy in such poor shape, she knew she had to make sure nothing bad would happen to him again, and promptly told her father she would take care of him.
Because he was mistreated, Rowdy still has some bad days but “all in all, he is doing good,” Brenda said. “He is so sweet. He loves all the attention he gets.” If you’re petting Rowdy and make the mistake of stopping, he’ll nudge your hand with his nose as a not-so-subtle way of reminding you not to stop. “He is a very loving dog,” Brenda said, “He will even stand up on your leg and want you to hold him.”
Rowdy has become part of the family both here at Replacements and at home with his brother, “
Cody.” “Cody & Rowdy are so cute together,” Brenda said. “I love watching them play. Rowdy and Cody came from the same litter, and both will be two years old on July 18 this year.”
Because Cody and Rowdy get to come to work with Brenda every day, they often get upset whenever she leaves the house without them. “Cody and Rowdy think when I go somewhere they should be able to go too! They love to ride in the car and look out the windows,” Brenda said. “They are my best buddies.”
“Replacements is a truly one-of-a-kind place to work,” Brenda said. “I enjoy my work, and the people I work with.” Brenda is also grateful for Replacements’ pet-friendly policy. “It has helped Rowdy a lot coming to work with me,” Brenda said. “It is wonderful being able to bring Rowdy and Cody to work each day – I don’t have to worry about them when they’re with me!”
