Pet door through brick wall

OK, my wife wants a doggie door but we don't have a door in which to place said doggie door. I have found a pet door that is "made" to go through an exterior wall. Our house is of basic exterior brick construction and although I have been in the construction biz (in the past) I had nothing to do with masonry. So the question is, can I safely put a doggie door (small dogs) size hole in the bottom of a brick wall? Additionally can it be done in a manner that will allow said hole to be fixed should we decide to sell our house in 10 years? Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks guys,

Yes it can and fairly easily also, but if you are not sure about the brickwork contact a brickmason. Remember though that an exterior wall with face brick construction will be 10-11 inches thick face to face so the sleeve for the door opening should be adjustable.
