Brut never gave me the option to be disillusioned that he might be friendly with another dog outside of his pack. Heck, he had enough issues within his pack, he wasn't going to take kindly to any dogs outside of it. There was no guess work when it came to Brut. He wasn't kind of friendly then not, or friendly with some and not with others, he disliked them all and he made no bones about it. Brut wasn't afraid to show how he felt and his intentions and reacted as such. As much as I didn't like this 'quality' Brut made it quite clear and for that I am grateful.
Why am I grateful that my dog aggressive dog made his actions loud and clear?
I think the most important thing I learned was that Brut didn't lie. Brut went over the top with every emotion he was feeling from day one, in a language I could understand. He never faked it. Whatever he did he was real with it and was big with it. He really felt and expressed himself in such a huge way that it couldn't be missed. And I really miss that about him. I really do, including his ornery ways that made him really stand out from any dog I have ever known.
