My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

***Please read all the way down to the bottom so you can learn all about our sweet pet and about the requirements as well as the organization***

Hi!! My name is "Bruce" . I am very sweet boy if you give me the chance to get to know me. My current mama is pregnant again, expecting her 5 baby; and she is only 23 years old. She loves me but she wants me to find another home where I can get the time and love that I deserve.

I have 4 other human brothers and a sister. The baby that is coming is another boy; and I talk to him when mama lets me hear him on her belly:) I get so excited, but I am very gentle when I get close to her.

I am really good with kids; and with other dogs and cats:)

At first I will be very afraid, as my human dad is not too nice with me, but once I know you are there to protect me and love me I will be the best buddy to you.

If you have kids, I will very happy to play with them and hang out with them on the couch as you can see on my last picture here in my profile.

I have the perfect size to be a medium to large size pup with a hypoallergenic, low shedding coat, as I have some wired hair of the Border terrier, some soft hair of the Labradoodle and the blue eyes of the husky or Australian Cattle.

I am ready to give you love and go home with you - please review below for more details in how to meet me:) did I said I have beautiful blue eyes??? ....I do!!! :)

He is currently being fostered with other dogs of all sizes; therefore, he will be great with a multi-family home with other pets. He is also very good with cats:)

He will be great with a very active family, to take him along for walks, runs, hiking, camping, or just taking it easy and having a cup of coffee:)

As a new family addition, he will need guidance as he gets a little shy in the 1st hours you meet him:)
If you are ready for this commitment and open your heart to any of our adorable pups, please don't wait no longer.

*****A minute of conscious - Please read:) *****
We ask you Please to be SERIOUS adopters; as there have been so many people that are not ready. We set up meet & greet appointments, do a home visit or send them the address for some meet & greet locations, paperwork and suddenly they said they are not ready or spouse is not ready, etc.

These fur kids have a very hard day the day of their appointment. Due to travelling we hold their food, so they won't get car sick. We bath them, some of them are schedule for grooming as you know it is stressful for them; then they have to travel with us picking up other rescued fur kids, and so on, it is a very stressful hard day for them for people to just cancel at last minute or not show up or do show up and just say they are not ready. Our time as well as your time is valuable. Please don't waste valuable time that is so precious for a rescued pet. Every single wasted time is a time that an animal will die because we didn't get to them on time to help them. In addition, of wasting gas and grooming fees which are paid by volunteers.

Please take the time to put your shoes in the shoes of the volunteer and most of it to put your shoes on our rescued fur kids!! Please take a minute to tell yourself if you are ready to adopt and for this commitment.
