The word Brunswick conjures up two images for me...beautiful beaches and stew! I am comforted by both of these things. Sean Skutnik comforted a sweet abandoned pup some 8 years ago, and that pup was given the name Brunswick! Sean, a self described adrenaline junkie, is a Broker in our Leland office. Originally from Binghamton, NY, Sean has lived in Wilmington for the past 22 years. Living at the coast has given Sean the opportunity to explore his passions of motocross, biking, surfing, and just about anything else sports related. We are honored to have someone so willing to stop and help as a part of our Coldwell Banker Sea Coast Advantage team. This is Sean’s best friend, Brunswick’s story...


I was driving around on hwy 210 in rural Brunswick Co, when I encountered a pack of five puppies that ran across the road. It was near dusk. There were no houses in site, so I pulled over and got out of my truck. As I walked towards them all except one, jumped into a deep ditch with cat tails, mud, water, etc. The one that didn’t, surprised me and came running to me when I whistled. He was scared and immediately fell onto his back. I could tell he was in bad shape. He was very malnourished, hair was falling out, bugs and ticks were all over him. He was so cute though. I picked him up and put him in the passenger seat. He thoroughly enjoyed the AC blowing from the vents. He sat there like he belonged. I knew I had an amazing dog right then and there! I continued to look for the other puppies, but unfortunately they got off into the woods and it was getting dark. I regret not saving them all, but was glad to have saved one of them. His name is Brunswick Skutnik.

Jumping forward to now, Brunswick is 8 years old, in great shape, and there is not one person he comes across that he does not like! He has the sweetest soul.He does so many funny things. He loves to hunt lizards around the perimeter of the fence during the warmer days. He has one squirrel that waits for him every day on the back fence that he thinks he will catch one day (while running after him with a ball in his mouth growling as if he is mean). If he did catch him he would probably only sniff him!

On Saturday’s he enjoys the dog park and a trail run at, “Brunswick Nature Park” in Leland. I let him lead the way on the trail, and I follow on the bicycle. He keeps a good pace for about 1 mile before he gets pretty tired. Like myself, “Brunswick” loves adrenaline but loves his downtime too. He has his own chair, 2 beds to relax on, a screened in patio, and doggie door for keeping the back yard clear of squirrels and lizards! Brunswick is also proud to be the reigning “King Of Paw Jam” from the last event held at Battleship Park. Yep, he has it made!

Meet Madison Preble Pet Person of the Week!

by seacoast_ashley 16. March 2015 03:54

Madison Preble (from our Jacksonville office) is our Pet Person of the Week! Madison has adopted many times, and currently has three pets. All of her animals are rescues. She has her dog training certification, and has worked as an animal shelter volunteer. Berrin was her first rescue. Her second rescue, Marley, was saved during Madison’s time at the shelter. The third member of the pack is Blintz...the cat!  As any pet owner knows we would do just about anything for our animals. Once our pets pick us out, we will jump through hoops to help them. This is Berrin’s story...


Berrin, my beagle/border collie was the first animal I got on my own. I went to visit a friend in Kentucky, and we took a trip to the pound. Berrin was one of 3 puppies that had been separated from his mom (at 4 weeks old). The adoption fee was $100 which I didn’t have at the time.  I told the guy working at the pound that I would give him the best home he could possibly have. He made me go back to the kennel that Berrin was in, pick him up, and show him how much I wanted him. I picked Berrin up and loved him. He got so excited he peed on me!!! I got to take him home, and he has been my best friend ever since!
