Mighty Brutus has endured his fair share of medical maladies throughout his 8 years. Thankfully he was blessed with an owner who always had his best interests at heart. That now includes passing the torch to a local rescue who can pick up the slack. Owner surrenders are always tricky and truthfully never pleasant. They are especially heartbreaking when said owner is waiving their white flag as a last resort and not because they aren’t completely in love with their pet. Brutus’ mama made the gut-wrenching decision to surrender him before having to surrender her own autonomy by moving into an assisted living facility. She approached ABR as a Hail Mary after last month’s vet visit confirmed her worst fears, and she can no longer provide the care he desperately requires. We are honored to take sweet Brutus into ABR, so we can find him the forever his Mom so desperately wants for him.
