Please help us, help Brutus.  This poor dog has had to face more than his fair share of pain and suffering and does not let it get him down.  As a baby he was left out in some extreme temperatures and sustained frostbite on his feet.  The cruel "breeders" decided the best option was to chop off his toes with an axe or other crude obect.  Brutus was left mamed and crippled and due to the poor way in which this was done, he is in pain every day of his life.  He cannot run and play like all puppies want to do, he can barely walk. He has to be carried over any hard surfaces or up and down stairs.  He was taken in by a family who loves him very much but are not equipped for the challenges that face Brutus every day.  We are raising money to correct the wrong that has been done to this amazing dog.  He has had a consultation and is a prime candidate for prothetics.  Please check out Orthopets in Denver, CO to see the amazing things they are doing. Please join us and together we will give this dog the life he deserves.  One that is not full of pain and suffering.  Together we will see this gentle giant run for the first time in his life. He will play, he will no longer be trapped in a body that was purposely and cruelly disfigured.  Brutus is pure heart!  Please follow his journey on Facebook at Better Paws for Brutus.  We will share all his updates, and you will be part of this amazing story as it unfolds.  Please support our cause and please encourage everyone you know to do the same.  God bless.
