WHAT WE KNOW ABOUT BRUNO: My name is Bruno and I am estimated to be about 3 to 4 years old and I am a purebred long haired dauchsund. I currently am fostered with 4 other dogs and 2 kids ages 7 and 12. I LOVE all the humans in my home, but especially my foster dad. I bond very quickly with my people and I love to snuggle with them every chance I get. However, in addition to snuggling, I need some "exercise time" because well my previous owner was quite older and she didn't really exercise me at all so now I am carrying some extra weight....WELL a LOT of extra weight so the vet has put me on an exercise program. The good news for you is that spring is here and now we can work on this together. What better way to forge a new bond than to be out and about socializing, exercising, and meeting new people. Being a doxie, you also have to remember that we have some very specific breed health issues and one of those are we are prone to spine issues. Precautions need to be taken for us so PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE research the breed prior to completing an application. Our spines are very much a concern for our breed and simple precautions like doggy stairs, limiting jumping up and down off of things, etc. avoiding high impact activities can help keep my spine/discs in good condition for many many years. As for my behavior and temperment, well I am past the puppy stage so no chewing or craziness for me so if you are looking for a calmer guy then I am perfect for you! If you are looking for a soccer buddy for the kids, well then I am not going to live up to those expectations so consider a different dog to rescue and just let the rescue know your expectations on the application so they can help match you with the perfect new family member. My potty the first couple of days was a little rough, but my foster family is very structured with their crate time and preventing accidents so they will happily tell you what they did because it worked and I am doing VERY VERY good on their structured schedule now. So, if you are okay with a few accidents once you and I work on a potty schedule then we will have no issues there. Of course, again the key is you have to prevent accidents and be patient while showing me where your outside is, what times you will be letting me out, etc. Now, lets move onto the kids. I am great with the kids ages 7 and over in my house EXCEPT when I am on a lap. Much like most small dogs I can get comfy on your lap and/or sleeping next to someone and if someone else comes over and disturbs us I can get a little crabby. I am not mean or aggressive or anything, I am just a bit protective so that is something that you will need to correct like my foster family does. They let me know that I am not allowed to be protective because they like you I am sure, have plently of love to go around and I do not need to worry about acting protective. So, if you have kids that are too young to understand a protective reaction, like say kids under 7, I think that for your sake and mine you should ask the rescue about some other dogs that maybe do not have this reaction. HOWEVER, keep in mind you can control this behavior and you need to be in charge of the moment and let me know that I am not allowed to do this so that it does not progress any further than my current growl and air snap. Again, I am NOT mean or aggressive, I am just comfortable and well probably a littllleeeee spoiled since my last owner was older and let me get away with pretty much anything. You see, prior to coming into rescue, I was a rescue. The older lady adopted me 2 years ago and she now has dementia and had to go into a nursing care facility and I was not able to go. So I really am having to start all over again and I am just trying to find my way. I went from being with an older lady...just her and I, now coming into foster care with 4 other dogs, kids, etc. I am actually handling the situation VERY well and quite frankly I think with some stability, love, and a permanent family I am going to be such a wonderful addition to almost any family. I am settling in more and more every day so I am ready to get a perfect home of my own and get started on our furrrever life together. If you are reading this and you think we are a match, PLEASE go to www.cthar.org and complete the application! Again, the application is required and the first step. If you are reading this I AM still available because this rescue removes dogs once they are adopted. WWW.CTHAR.ORG
