Adoptable pit bull Brewster is one in a million

Brewster is a meatball on a mission. At 50 pounds, the eight-year-old cuddle bug of a pit bull has a malignant tumor on his thyroid, and the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria is looking for a family to help him through surgery.

“He really is a goofy guy,” AWLA spokesperson Gina Hardter told ALXnow. “The team at the AWLA would be happy to walk adopters through his medical history, and we would highly recommend his new family consult with a veterinary oncologist to see if there is potential to operate on the tumor.”

Hardter continued, “We know that Brewster’s new family are going to be very special people to help him with his cancer diagnosis, and we also know that they are out there in our animal-loving community.”
