Well heavens to Betsy, human! It sure is nice to meetcha! My name’s Brutus, but you can call me Best Buddy, Ol’ Man, whatever ya like… just don’t call me late for dinner! Ehehehe, I’m just joshin’ ya. I’m never late for dinner.
Now, I ain’t gonna give ya lots of ballyhoo about how I’m the fanciest dog in town. Y’all can see with your own two eyes that I’m a humble brown feller with blood as mixed as a milkshake. But if there’s one thing I know, it’s that if you wanna strike gold, you gotta be up for doin’ a little digging.
I’m a middle-aged guy – 8 years old- who has seen my share of strife- spent some time wanderin’ God’s green Earth all on my own and then got picked up and tossed in the hoosegow. Turns out I’m sweet as a rock candy kitten, though, and I charmed the boots offa wardens and company alike. I love all people and everyone who meets me loves me back.
I’m technically eligible for the Seniors-4-Seniors program, but I’m a strong and virile young senior lookin’ for a human partner as rugged as I am- a rocking chair on a porch wouldn’t go amiss from time to time, but your great-great-granny knittin’ in her nightie might not be the best match. Terms of the contract are, if a human over the age of 60 takes me, the adoption fee is just one buck and routine vet care is covered.
One more thing- I ain’t a big fan of small animals. Dogs my own size might be okay, but nothin’ smaller than an armadillo.
So that’s the story, human. If you wanna come and make my acquaintance, I’ll be here waiting from sunup to sundown every day.
My name is Brutus, I’m 8 years old, and I’m up to date on all my shots and have had my prairie oysters removed. I’m currently residing at
Open Door Animal Sanctuary
House Springs, MO
