This amazing hunk of a bulldog will be the best friend ever! Brutus is fostering in Tampa, FL and his foster home just loves him. Brutus is 5 years old and vaccinated, neutered and ready for his forever family. We would love to find a bully knowledgeable family that will spoil him rotten for the rest of his life! He deserves nothing but the best.

Brutus is left for short periods but in a contained area or crate with something to keep him busy. He tends to get bored and toilet paper is his destruction of choice. He will go right in and take it off the wall
and shred it….well, paper is better than a sofa….lol. He apparently loves to destroy paper. Again, a much better alternative!

Brut loves stuffed toys but they really should be thrown out. He loves them a little too much and will destroy them in minutes. This could lead to
obstruction surgery so we highly recommend Kong toys only.

He is living with cats and is respectful but every now and then he wants to play with them. Due to his size, I don’t think he would make a good playmate for cats. I don’t believe he would hurt a cat unless he unexpectedly lands on one. This will be a decision for the new adopter to make if they own cats.

Unfortunately, Brutus is too much for young children and will be fine with children over 10 years of age. He LOVES children and he gets so exited when they come over. There is not a mean bone in his body but ….his social graces are just terribly lacking.

Brut has impeccable leash manners until he sees another dog or gets excited….lol He’s still awesome but just needs to be told to sit. Brutus lacks social skills when meeting other dogs and one day it will get him in trouble. He’s a little bit obnoxious and inappropriate (unintentionally) and just bulldozes himself and dogs don’t like it and it will lead to a
spat. If they run, he will chase thinking its a game. Sadly, he just doesn’t understand that he won’t make friends this way. Therefore, Brut should probably be an only dog or have a bully experienced home to integrate him properly. He is AMAZING with other small dogs and medium dogs but just for walks as he could easily squish a small dog (again, totally unintentionally) when he gets to romping. He just doesn’t know his size and its sad…..he just wants a friend but doesn’t know how to make friends properly.

Note: Brut loves his meals so dogs or cats should not interrupt his meals. This is easily controlled as Brutus eats alone and all bowls are picked up before he comes back. All dogs should have their space when eating. Would you want someone breathing down your neck while you’re enjoying a meal? Brutus loves his meals and doesn’t like other animals interrupting his dining.

If you are interested in giving Brutus his happily ever after, please submit an adoption application at so we can see if he/she would be a good fit for you and your family. It is our policy at American Bulldog Rescue not to place the same gender dogs in a home. Adoptions are most successful and harmonious with opposite genders. Please also note: No one will be considered without first submitting an adoption application. Our dogs are in homes and only approved adopters can meet them. Once approved, you can meet any dog.
