Growing up I didn’t have dogs. In fact, I was afraid of all dogs. So, when I decided to adopt Brutus in October of 2018, my family was definitely thrown for a loop!
I had researched a few shelters because I KNEW I wanted to adopt after seeing and reading so many stories and seeing the joy of those pet parents. I found Brutus at Richardson Animal Shelter and I immediately fell in love! He was very scared (as he was abandoned) and timid, but warmed up to me as soon as we got outside. I knew I had found my protector!

He was abused, abandoned and underweight, so he posed a challenge but I was up for that! Almost three years later, he is happy, healthy and loving life! I wouldn’t change adopting him for a thing…even after all the carpet tear ups and anxiety-ridden moments!
Adopting him was one of the best choices I ever made! ❤️
