I am a 3 year old, Neutered Male, Pit Bull Mix.

*Please call us at 410-749-7603 to arrange to have Brutus brought into the shelter.*

Brutus is a stunning boy with lots of strength. He’s playful, goofy, and a big sweetie! He is unfortunately living his life confined to a bedroom, hoping someone can give him another chance at life.

This sweet boy was surrendered 2 years ago because his owners decided to move without him. He was luckily adopted and has been very loved since then, but now he has run into another situation through no fault of his own.

Brutus had a child with special needs move into his house. Although he’s shown no aggression and has not had any issues with the child, his owner is concerned about the child not understanding how to interact with Brutus and therefore has to keep him separated.

Instead of Brutus coming back to the shelter again to live in a kennel, his owner is keeping him until he can find a new home. It’s not his owners fault and he is trying to do what’s best for everyone, but unfortunately Brutus is suffering because of it. He isn’t getting the exercise or attention he needs living his life in one bedroom, and he desperately deserves another chance at a family.

He is a big boy with an even bigger heart, sweet as can be, and dog friendly. He has gained 15 lbs just since the recent change in his lifestyle, weighing almost 100 lbs now. He needs a family committed to helping him lose weight, and providing both the mental stimulation and physical exercise that he needs.

He would benefit from some training to help him work on his leash manners as he was in a home that used an invisible fence, so he wasn’t leash trained. A dog-savvy owner would be best for Brutus, as well.

Please consider coming to Brutus’s rescue and showing him what forever really means. He’s ready for someone to give him the permanent home he deserves 🤎
