Hi, I’m Bruce! I big guy with a big heart and a big smile. People say that I look a bit like a galloping horse when I move around but for the most part I’m a pretty lazy boy. You may have noticed the heart sign on my profile. That is there because I have a mild heart murmur but don’t worry, I am in great health otherwise and the heart murmur doesn’t change the fact that I am a perfect, lovable dog.
My foster mom says that my forever family is going to be so lucky to have me. I am already fully potty trained and I love sniffing around outside. I know going potty outside makes my people happy, which makes me super happy. I am also kennel trained and I like resting in my kennel. Just give me some comfy blankets and a bed and I will curl up for a nap anytime! I also know how to sit, shake and what down means! Right now my foster family is teaching me to “wait” for my food. I can get a little drooly waiting in anticipation for that delicious food though!
I currently live with a cool 11-year-old boy and he always brings his friends around. They like to play catch and other games in the backyard and I love to hang out with them. I like to cuddle them when they hang out on the couch too. I think I would be better with slightly older children only because I am so big and a little clumsy. If you had big clunky paws like mine, you would be clumsy too! My doggy foster sister is my best friend! She’s a 40lb pit mix and we play and take naps together all the time. I know what a cat is, enough to know that we don't see eye-to-eye, so I would do best in a family without any.
I just love life! I am always ready to go on adventures and try new things. I love to learn tricks, go on car rides and snuggle the nights away. I dream of so many different types of forever families. I could be an only pup or have doggy siblings. Ideally I would want a family that will love me forever.
