Bruce's Info...

I am not good with cats.

Bruce's Story...
Meet Bruce.... a very handsome, a 2 year old, male Cattle dog mix who is need of a new place to call home. Bruce was found wearing a Batman collar, but it would have been more helpful if he had some form of identification that would have lead us to his owners.

Just like the winged crusader himself, Bruce is very intelligent, rugged, athletic and very clever. Bruce is really a unique dog with a working-dog type personality. Daily walks and squeaky toy play time are some of Bruce's favorite things to do. He often joyfully squirms on his back as a happy, playful ritual. He is very social and outgoing. Bruce has also been successfully evaluated by an Australian Cattle dog rescue, but he has been patiently waiting for a foster home to take him in.

Bruce doesn't need a Bat Cave in Gotham City, but he will need a home where he has strong leadership and someone that understands the nature of his breed. An active family is a must and one that will maintain his intellectual level of training. Bruce has a higher doggie dominance level, and for now, he would benefit from being the only dog in the household.

If you think that Bruce could be the dog for you... no need to send a Bat Signal... just call or email us at West Hartford Animal Control 860-570-8818 or Animalcontrol@westhartfordCT.gov. to learn more.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Bruce, a West Hartford Australian Cattle Dog dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Australian Cattle Dog for sale in West Hartford, or seeking a Australian Cattle Dog dog from a breeder in West Hartford.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in West Hartford already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a West Hartford breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Australian Cattle Dog breeders who help with Australian Cattle Dog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in West Hartford paves the way for another one to be saved.
