It has been a month since
Brutus arrived at the kennel. Please offer to foster this wonderful
boy so we can get him back into a home environment. He does well with
easygoing female dogs and has also been around smaller dogs. Brutus
absolutely loves being with people and he looks forwards to his walks and
visits at the kennel. Apply today to help Brutus!
Brutus is such a devoted boy
and loves to be around people. I have watched this boy come such a long way
in 6 weeks. Everybody that has met him has fallen in love with him right
away. He was getting free run while I was working due to the fact he does
not do well in his crate. Brutus does not like to be 'blocked' off, but with
free run he would lay on the couch and wait for me. Brutus is wonderful on
his leash and will do some basic commands. He truly is a great boy and will
make somebody very happy. Brutus has shown a little too much interest in the
cats, so would do best in a home without cats. He got a bath the other night
and was so happy and such a good boy - he looked at me as to say thank you,
I feel so much better. Please don't let his impaired vision be a concern
because it doesn't impact him. Brutus can still see, but he seems to have
more trouble with things close up than at a distance.
Brutus did well with the other female dogs in his temporary foster home,
small and large, but he and the resident male boxer did not do well
together. For this reason, Brutus had to be moved to our boarding kennel
over the weekend. He is in urgent need of a new foster home.
If you are looking for a true & faithful friend, please apply today to give
Brutus the life he deserves.
Brutus is in need of a new
foster home, or better yet - a forever home to call his own. He would do
best in a home with an easygoing female or even as an only dog in the right
home. Brutus is still working on his crate training. He is such
a sweet boy with every new person he meets. Please offer to foster or
Brutus is continuing to do well
in his temporary foster home. He has really learned to love the indoor life. In fact,
he really has no interest to be outside unless you are with him. The poor
guy is probably afraid to be left alone again. He is a HUGE baby with a big
head, LOL. This boy is a big snuggler and loves everybody & everybody loves
him. He has been doing great with his house training and is learning his
basic commands such as sit and stay. Brutus loves to go for walks and jogs.
He is great in the car. As soon as I grab my keys, he is the first one at
Brutus will play like a 'normal boxer' and can get his little nub going
about 50 mph!!! He will follow me from room to room and stays by my side. If
it were up to him, I would just sit with him 24/7 :)))) He is NOT a fan of
the crate, so I currently am letting him have his own room while I am
We went to visit the Ophthalmologist today and she did say that his
vision is impaired. His eyes will not get any better nor worse. She is 150%
sure that it's not causing any pain to Brutus. It looks like this poor baby
was left with an untreated infection that took some of his eye sight.
However, he does not know he has a problem - so please don't tell him..ha
ha! He does the 14 steps better then me and is quite a runner too. She
explained to me that he sees in different angles - kinda like us looking
through a telescope. He has learned quickly where everything is and can
navigate around without problems.
Brutus really is a great boy and would love a place to call his own. I
would love to see Brutus get a home that doesn't mind a big teddy bear with
a big heart and for once, I can say a small appetite. Brutus has been around
my niece who is 11 and he just thinks in his little mind that kids rock.
Apply today for this handsome boy and you will have a friend for life.
Meet AABR's newest addition, Brutus! Two years ago, Brutus was found as a
stray and taken home by somebody just to be left tied to a doghouse. His
owner was recently evicted from his home and Brutus became urgent as he had
been left at the property and a neighbor was providing food for him. I went
with an animal control officer to meet Brutus and to finally unhook him from
his chain. Brutus almost pulled me down trying to get to the car - he was
full of wiggles and kisses. Once at our home with Brutus, we quickly
discovered that he has no sight or very limited sight. It was even more
amazing to know that he couldn't see us and was still so accepting and
loving towards all the people involved in his rescue. Even with his vision
difficulties, Brutus was so happy to be able to stretch and explore - he
even did a few laps around our yard. Brutus was introduced to my
female pit mix and he did great with the brief introduction to her.
Brutus will be neutered next week and brought up to date on all vet care.
We will then be scheduling an appointment with an ophthalmologist to learn
more about his vision needs. Please donate towards Brutus to help with his
care. If you are interested in adopting this special boy, apply today! His
new foster home will post an update as soon as she learns more about this
