Brutus's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.

Brutus's Story...
Brutus and his sister Bella are hound mixes, about 1 1/2 years old, who were abandoned by their owners. They are a bonded pair, and we'd love to find them a home together - but that is not required. Either will adjust to being apart as long as they have at least one loving and attentive person who can be with them most of the time. They are housetrained, enjoy children, and love to follow their noses, and to run like the wind. Brutus is pretty tolerant of other dogs, but his #1 ambition is to locate his sister and hang out with her.

If you adopt just Brutus, you should be prepared to allow him to be a bit mopey for a while, without reinforcing his loneliness by giving it attention. In time, he will release that bond and attach to his new family.

If you adopt both as a pair, you should be prepared for some energetic, fast-moving play sessions! They do sometimes get a little carried away together, and (since hounds can't seem to help but follow a scent), you would be wise to have a fenced yard for them to do their racing around.

Brutus does know "sit" and he gives his paw for a shake when he sits... however, he doesn't always FEEL like sitting, so will benefit from some retraining. He has a happy, sunny personality, and definitely has both a bark and a hound-bay - he likes to talk! Not a good apartment dog (ha), but he will be a fantastic family dog or individual companion dog.

Like all our adult pet placements, Brutus comes with a 30-day money-back trial adoption period.

Spay/neuter, worming, microchip and all age-appropriate shots are always completed before placement, and are included in the adoption fee (suggested minimum $75; DISCOUNT for pair adoption; more gratefully accepted!)

Can't come to Republic? Don't let that stop you! We have monthly transports to both the Seattle area and Spokane, delivering adopted pets to their new owners. If you can add a little to your donation to help us cover our volunteer driver's expenses, that would be great!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Brutus, a Republic Hound (Unknown Type)/Black and Tan Coonhound dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Hound (Unknown Type)/Black and Tan Coonhound for sale in Republic, or seeking a Hound (Unknown Type)/Black and Tan Coonhound dog from a breeder in Republic.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Republic already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Republic breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Hound (Unknown Type)/Black and Tan Coonhound breeders who help with Hound (Unknown Type)/Black and Tan Coonhound rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Republic paves the way for another one to be saved.
