Meet Brutus, a 2-year-old American pit bull mix weighing 56 pounds. Like his chocolate color, he’s super sweet. He loveseveryone he meets and always has a goofy grin. And his personality is just as quirky: he likes licking people’s clothes, making silly snort noises and showing off his toys with his head held high. He’s missing a front leg, making him a tripod with style. Brutus has been neutered and microchipped and has received all age-appropriate vaccinations. Come meet him today and he will steal your heart. #159404
