Beyond a bone, a ball or a tug toy, for Brook, a 1-year-old Australian shepherd, receiving a new home was the best Christmas present of all. Brook was rescued off the streets of Show Low and almost put down due to overcrowding in a shelter. Luckily, Payson’s Aussie and Friends Rescue scooped Brook up before it was too late and found her a new, loving home. Simone Loetscher never dreamed she would find her ideal dog when she visited the annual Alpine Village Christmas lighting event in early December. On a whim, she decided to look through the Christmas Tree Forest sponsored by Rebecca Acord, owner of Crafters Cubbies.
