    Brutus lived the first year of his life on a chain, alone. He is a big snug bug once he knows and trusts you. He loves, LOVES his foster mama, his fur sister and her son, but due to his fear aggression, a kid free and pet free home is best for him. He may be ok with a laid back female dog, but priority will be given to pet free homes. Brutus is not good with cats, he thinks they’re prey and will go after them. Brutus is a very strong boy, and needs someone who can hang onto him if he’s leashed. A nice country property with a large fenced yard, and lots of ball time would be perfect amount of exercise for him.
    Brutus would do best in a very laid back home, away from the city, with people who will love him and be patient with his fear. Brutus is not aggressive; he is simply fearful and under socialized which he displays with lunging and low growls when he is unsure of people. He is very protective of his family, so the traffic coming in and out of your home, will need to be considered. Brutus is a just a big teddy bear, who will be your loyal protector always, but he needs the right home to help him thrive.
    Thank you for considering Brutus!

    I'm so glad this boy is in foster care. I hope he can find just the right home with someone that has experience. Thank you for sharing.

    Yes I hope so too. I would gladly take him on. But I have 2 females. Sunny is getting too old for new siblings. And Bella isn't laid back at all. She's still has the energy of a pup.
