Hi! My name is Bruno (Mars) and I am a young, energetic, intelligent and extremely handsome Redbone Coonhound and Rhodesian Ridgeback mix! I am around one year old and have lots of fun energy. I love to romp around my foster mom's backyard for a long time playing with my foster siblings. I ADORE other dogs and must go to a home with at least one other dog. I do best with dogs that are 30 pounds or bigger and who like to play hard! My high energy can be overwhelming for a small dog though I am not aggressive with them. I am looking for a home with a fenced in back yard or with a very active family since I need an outlet for my energy!

I am an independent dog but I do love to crawl up beside my foster mom and snuggle her. She gives the best ear rubs! I am actually lying on the couch right now with my foster mom and two of my foster siblings! Every night me and my foster siblings watch the news with our foster mom and she lets us chew on cow hooves and rope toys. I LOVEEEE to chew on cow hooves! I walk pretty well on leash but I do sometimes get a whiff of something that smells so good and pull a bit. My foster mom typically uses the Easy Walk Harness with me but also says I do well on the martingale (no-slip) collar! I really love to go for walks as well as play in the backyard! It is super fun to play fetch and dig for moles. I am great with my human foster cousins who are 8 and 10! They love me and my floppy ears! When they come over we play fetch in the back yard with my other furry foster siblings for hours! I also love it when they take me to the dog park to run around and play with new dogs! I am super friendly and submissive with every dog I meet! Because I am young and goofy and am still learning how to respect others space so it is best I do not go to a home with children under 5. I have not been around cats but would likely chase them since I have the hunters' instinct. If you would like my foster mom to cat test me that can be arranged!

My foster mom finds my cute hound habits endearing (I like to counter surf from time to time) and she knows that there is a family out there that will feel the same! Someone who loves an energetic, loving and sometimes mischievous companion would be perfect for me! I also have that adorable hound bark which my foster mom thinks is so precious!

I am up to date on vaccines, microchipped, neutered and on monthly heartworm and flea/tick prevention. My adoption fee is $225. If you have any questions about me, please email my foster mom at

To adopt me please fill out this application!

I can't wait to meet my FURever family!

About Paws For Life NC A FCHS Program

About Our Rescue Group...

FCHS is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization comprised entirely of volunteers from Franklin County and throughout the state and country. It was formed in 2002 to help solve the problem of unwanted dogs and cats in this region. Its long-term goal is to build an animal shelter where area pets can find safe refuge until they can be adopted to permanent homes. Its immediate goals are to develop a strong foster program to remove adoptable animals from the Franklin County Animal Control facility and to decrease the number of unwanted dogs and cats in Franklin/North Wake counties through spay/neuter public education programs

Our Adoption Process...

1.After you find A Dog or Cat, review the description of the foster you are interested in to make sure that the information we have fits with your particular needs and desires. In most cases, the information on the website is current and gives the information that we have about the particular foster. The picture of the foster does not tell the whole story.

2.Complete the adoption application. Please make sure that you give us as much information about yourself as you can. List all animals currently living with you including other dogs, cats, birds, reptiles and rodents. The application needs to be complete in order to help us determine if the foster you have chosen is a good match for your home. has the applications. This is step one.

3.Once the application is submitted you will usually receive an email letting you know if the foster would be a good match for you and making arrangements for you to meet the dog at one of our adoption events. Sometimes a foster is best shown at the foster home due to his or her personality. We will let you know where the foster home is and arrange a time that works both for you and the foster home.We do require that everyone who will live with the foster to come and meet them. There is a chance we may tell you that the foster you are interested in is not a good match and may suggest another foster.

4.If, after meeting the foster you decide you would like to adopt him or her, a home visit will be scheduled. Someone from the Franklin County Humane Society will call and do the visit. The foster does not come on the home visit. Home visits are required before any foster leaves our program.

5.If more than one person applies and meets the same foster, all things being equal, we go in the order the applications were received.

6.Once the home visit has been completed, you will be asked to complete an adoption agreement. Please read the agreement carefully to make sure that you understand what you will be agreeing to.

7.An adoption fee of $250 for dogs under 6 months $225 for 6 months and older and $95 for cats, Senior Cats $50. This fee helps us to provide the necessary medical care and other needs for the fosters while in foster care. All FCHS fosters are altered, current on shots, micro chipped, and to our knowledge, in good health before they are adopted out. We are all volunteers and as such receive no monetary compensation for our work with the fosters. The adoption fee is used to help defray costs in the rescue and care of the fosters.

8.Congratulations! You are on your way to having you new furry companion. We hope that you and your new companion share a life of love and happiness. We welcome any comments you may wish to give us about your foster at any time.
