Adopt Brutus a Black Great Dane / Mixed dog in Inver Grove Heights
Inver Grove Heights, MN
Status: CHECKED OUT 5/16/2019 Introducing Brutus!This attractive and healthy almost 6yr old boy is a big bundle of love and playful energy. Brutus really likes people and is good with adults and kids. He happily shares love and snuggles, and accepts butt rubs from everyone. In his foster home he especially loves the teenage girl. Brutus does well with the resident dogs AND cats. When he 1st arrived at his foster home he wasn't sure where he fit in the animal pack. He and the resident dogs had some alpha discussions, but once he found his place in the pack, they were fine.Brutus prefers people over animal companions. If he would be left alone long periods without his people, he must have an animal companion. Ideally he would love a family where someone was home more often than not. Brutus wants to be with people as much as possible and does not like being separated in another room or by gate so the adoptive family should want him in their space, room or anywhere they are as he loves being a part of all the action! He handles free roam very well and is also crate trained, although crating is not necessary. A routine is very important for Brutus. He came in to rescue from a home with an erratic routine that made him confused and he regressed with some potty issues. Since he arrived at his foster home there has not been a single potty accident, so we know that he really enjoys and needs a consistent schedule. He is responsibly handing free roam with the resident dogs when his foster parents are at work.Brutus has plenty of young dog energy! He enjoys playfully running around that yard and going for walks through the neighborhood. He walks nice on a leash without pulling. He does get excited when he sees other dogs and will pull to go to them, but otherwise he is the best walker. While a fenced back yard is not a firm requirement for Brutus, he absolutely enjoys the unrestrained freedom to play and enjoy the outdoors.If you think that this precious boy would be a good addition to your family, this is what you need to do:~ If you have already completed the application process and are an approved adopter with UMGDR, please contact Lindsay at XXXX@thegreatdanerescue.com to discuss your interest in Brutus.~ If you are not an approved adopter through UMGDR, you must complete our application process before you may consider adopting a dog through our Rescue.
