Grumpy Cat is yesterday’s news.  Do you want to know what the next internet sensation is going to be?  Do you want to adopt the next internet sensation?

Brustus 1Meet Brutus!  He’s the next big thing!

Brutus may look like Grumpy Cat’s canine cousin, but he’s as sweet and lovable as can be. His foster mom confessed that he’s her favorite foster of all time, and she’s ‘obsessed’ with his soft shepherd-y fur.

Brustus 2Good-natured, Brutus likes to follow his people around, happy to roll over for a belly rub. He also enjoys going on walks, where he shows off his great leash manners, and playing tug of war with his foster doggy brothers and sisters. Good with other dogs, Brutus can co-exist with cats as long as they tolerate his efforts to play. 

Brutus 3Sometimes shy around strangers, Brutus will quickly warm up with a little patience and time—and a few of those belly rubs. Described by his foster mom as ‘low maintenance,’ he’s housetrained and knows a number of commands, including ‘sit,’ ‘down,’ ‘stay,’ ‘come,’ and ‘wait.’ 
Brustus 4In one word, Brutus is ‘loyal.’ If you adopt him, you’ll never find yourself betrayed, asking, ‘Et tu, Brute?’ Instead, you’ll have a companion for life who adores you. 

Brutus 5A calm household would be best for this fluffy boy to call his home. If you want to make Brutus a permanent part of your life, please visit our website to learn about our adoption process and to fill out an application, here. All of our dogs will be micro-chipped, spayed or neutered, and up-to-date on vaccinations at the time of adoption.
