Facts about Bruno

  • Age: Young
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)

Meet Bruno. We post a lot of shy dogs who need a moment to warm up--Bruno is not one of them! This handsome guy is personality plus. He is a 2-year-old boxer/pit mix who weighs about 60 pounds. He is adorable, friendly, and always in a good mood.

Bruno has been raised around children. He is very sweet to them, but his bouncy nature can get him into trouble with really little ones who aren't steady on their feet. Bruno's single goal each day is to play and get a lot of attention. So in terms of cats, Bruno wants to play with them, just like he would a person. Some cats are a little overwhelmed by that much attention. His intention is never to harm. We didn't know how Bruno was with dogs at first. As far as we knew, he had not had any experience with dogs other than seeing them from a distance on leash. As it turns out, Bruno is a great with similar-sized dogs and really likes a playmate. We have not seen him interact with dogs smaller than he is.

Bruno is neutered, up to date on vaccines, and microchipped. He is solidly housebroken as long as he gets potty breaks at reasonable intervals. He is not a fan of being crated because he used to be crated for long periods of time and as a form of punishment. He is being worked with to help him see the crate as a positive. As a younger pup he would find things that weren't his to chew on. Recently he has been doing well without the crate. Bruno knows some basic commands and requires and Easy Walk harness because otherwise he will tug too much. He loves going for walks, meeting new people, and going for car rides.

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a rescue/ rhoming service that provides education and assistance for owners in our community to keep pets in their home. When that is not an option or we come across animals in need, we will take them into our foster-based program, work with them, seek all necessary vetting, and find them the perfect home.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We do various adoption events in the community. If you would like to meet one of our available adoptables, please email us!

Our Adoption Process...

The first step in the adoption process is to complete the adoption application on our website. Once we have reviewed the applications, we will contact the potential adopters to arrange a meet and greet. This can take several days depending on the popularity of the animal.
