Bruiser is approximately 4 years old (March 2016), neutered, vaccinated, heartworm negative, microchipped, house trained, and uses a dog door. He gets along well with most dogs, especially small dogs but does not tolerate cats.
He is a great adventure partner. He loves to swim and is great to cuddle up with on the couch. He has a laid back personality and would make a great family addition. He has a slight arthritic condition in his lower back and sometimes needs some pain meds when he has a really active day. Joining Bruiser in his new home will be his matching leash, collar, and head halter, food bowl, and his prescription food.
If you feel your home might be the right place for such a great dog - the place to start is with the adoption application found at www.dfwrescueme.org/adopt. Once submitted, the foster will contact you promptly to tell you more and to arrange a time to meet!
The adoption fee for all of our dogs is $250.00, which includes their vaccinations and spay/neuter.
Bruiser is participating in the DFW Rescue Me Guest Dog Program, so ongoing care and custody are provided by their foster, not by DFWRM.
