Cauliflower (also known as Brutus) is the most adorable and special little guy you will ever meet! Brutus came to APA! with partial paralysis of his hind limbs. His condition is stable, and while he may not fully recover that does not stop him from getting around!

He will follow you around the house just to be by your side. He enjoys all the love and affection he can get and will burrow into your side or put a paw out to extend the snuggle session.

His foster mom says Brutus is by far the bravest dog she has ever met! He is very curious and adventurous! It is best to keep him busy with his puzzles, chew toys and snuffle mat. He loves to be with his foster family and gets along great with other animals (dogs and cats). He interacts very well with small and large dogs inside and outside of the house.

Brutus can walk. But if he is struggling, he can wear a belly band to help support his hind limbs. Carpets and rugs are helpful. Unfortunately, a home with a lot of stairs is not ideal. He is currently on two daily medications as well as a medicated eye drop to treat dry eye. Brutus is always a particularly good boy and takes his meds like a champion.

He is house-trained and does well when his foster is away, either free roaming the house or in his crate, where he's comfortable.
