Story
Bruno is a very energetic, smart dog! We got him as a puppy from a family friend. He’s very social and loves to play with other dogs, cats, and humans! We didn’t have much time to train him, but he’s very interested in learning and remembered things we taught him after only one time. He’s kennel trained and house trained. He’s very energetic and would be perfect in a house that is very active. He gets bored easily so he needs to be stimulated. Bruno is an incredibly sweet dog. We want to rehome him so he can get the attention he needs and deserves! We’ll be sad to see him go, but happy if he can find a home that suits him better.
