The historical Brutus was a Roman citizen. But if this Brutus went wandering on a walk, he'd be a roamin' canine! On January 5th, Brutus was surrendered by his owner to the Harnett County Animal Shelter in North Carolina. His owner was moving, but unable to take Brutus. A 13-year-old Pit Bull mix, Brutus was not only black, but also heartworm positive. With so many other younger dogs at the shelter, there was next to no chance of Brutus getting adopted or rescued.
