We are pleased to introduce Brutus, one of ESRA'S newest rescued Springers. Brutus is a wonderful, healthy, and loving boy who gets along with all humans. While he gets along with the dogs in his foster home, he would much prefer being the only dog in his new Forever Home. He would definitely enjoy being your one and only in order to receive all the love you can give him! Brutus was raised in a family with two children and his Springer brother. Both he and his brother were outside dogs their entire lives, which meant that when Brutus entered foster care, he was not housetrained. He has done admirably in this area and is now about ninety percent successful, although he still does mark on occasion. Brutus learned the doggie door very quickly, but he does not like to go out without his human. For this reason, we believe that Brutus will do best in a household where someone will be home most of the time.
Brutus has learned to love being allowed in the house, and he is soaking up all the loving and attention he can get. He loves his dog bed and sleeps through the night without moving. He has recently discovered the toy box in his foster home, and he enjoys pulling toys out and throwing them up in the air. We believe that Brutus never had toys to play with and has not yet learned how to play with either humans or other dogs.
This handsome guy has had some obedience training, and he knows the commands Come, Sit, Down, and Stay. Since Brutus was always an outside dog, we think that he was rarely taken on family outings. He is uncomfortable in the car, but we hope that he will learn to enjoy this time with his new family. Brutus is a strong boy who currently has no leash skills, so he needs a strong family member to handle him on his explorations. An obedience class is highly recommended for Brutus as it will help him to bond with his new family as well as to learn what is expected of him. Brutus is a pure love bug who needs good guidance so that he can become the best forever friend anyone could ask for.
Brutus is a happy, wonderful boy looking for a Springer-savvy person who would be willing to do whatever it takes to nurture him and meet his needs. Obedience training, follow-through, and lots of attention and exercise are essential for his well-being and happiness. Are you willing to make this commitment and give Brutus a place in your heart and your family? If so, please have an approved Adoption Application on file and be prepared to fall in love.
