1.5y 55lb Bruno Brunelli is everything we love about Pittis. He was very friendly, loose wiggly body and a waggy tail. He allowed counselor to pet him and rub his belly. He listened to the commands of sit and stay. He allowed all handling As per the client Bruno is house broken and friendly towards strangers. He has never bitten or scratched anyone to his knowledge. Bruno will chew up shoes if they are left out--so don't leave your shoes out as chew toys!

A volunteer writes: Bruno is a wiggly, playful, sweet bundle of joy! He pulls a little on leash, seems housebroken, sits for treats, and manages to immediately initiate a romance with any tennis ball he finds! I’m not sure I’ve ever met a dog that could entertain himself as well as Mr. Bruno does. He play bows with the ball, waltzes with it, rolls on his back with it, eventually chews it up, and then starts the whole cycle with the next one. Just watching him is enough to put a smile on anyone’s face, but he also loves interacting with people (and, so far, other dogs too!). He seems to be one of those dogs that sees a friend in every stranger (the kind of friend he can give kisses to and get belly rubs from!), but I can only imagine the extra-special-lovin’ he has reserved for his family. Please come meet him at Brooklyn ACC and see if that might be you!

About Zani's Furry Friends NJ Outpost

About Our Rescue Group...

Primarily we pull cats/dogs from the overcrowded municipal shelters when they are about to be euthanized usually for simple colds as space in all of these shelters is an issue. By freeing up a cage, we actually provide a temporary cage to the next cat or dog coming in. Most of these are wonderful family pets who are given up--they deserve another chance at life.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Saturdays at Corrado's Pet Supply Market Clifton NJ 12-3

Sundays Petco E86th/Lexington NY, NY 12.30-5.30

Our Adoption Process...

adoption process consists of application, reference checks, interview w/ the adopter, interview between adopter and adoptee, home visit, and in most cases a suggested donation
