It's terrible when a leash accidentally breaks. Now this dog needs to be found.

Be on the lookout for Brutis. He is friendly to other dogs and to humans, but he may be scared, so don't try to chase him if you spot this sweet boy.

He belongs to the Monmouth County SPCA's shelter and got loose after his leash broke at Thompson Park. Brutis is a large brown and white hound mix who may be skittish if you try to approach him.

The best thing you can do if you spot him is to call call 732-245-7363 or 908-386-1526. For any other questions please email

And, to quote the MCSPCA, "Negative comments don't help anyone, especially Brutis."
