Meet goofy Brutus ! This silly boy LOVES stuffies. Often times, he can be seen carrying one in his mouth, proudly parading around with it. Brutus has a big body and an even bigger heart ! He loves to plop himself on your lap and roll around for full body pets. He does not know his own size and could easily knock a small child over, however, he would enjoy the company of dog savvy children. He does fairly well on leash and will look back to check in. If you would like to welcome this handsome sweetheart into your home, please submit an application online or contact the shelter for more information.
We will be adopting Brutus locally as he needs to have dental work.
