Bruno

Rat Terrier Pomeranian

Male, Young
Palacios, TX
Size
(when grown) Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
Details
Good with kids, Good with dogs, Needs experienced adopter, Spayed or Neutered,
Story
Bruno is an energetic, playful, and a bit mischievous 5 year old. His favorite hobbies is lying around indoors, but he’s a complete 180 when he’s outdoors. He’s a little stubborn when he has to go back indoors, but he’ll come running back once you start squeaking his toys rapidly or offer him food. He does get overwhelmed easily when there’s a large group of people over, but overall he does warm up fast once he sees someone repetitively. I’m hoping his new family will be able to take him out on frequent walks/dog parks, play with him as much as possible during the day, and hold him close on rainy nights.

Story
Bruno is a playful and energetic 5 year old rat terrier mix. His favorite game is fetch, but he never knows how to return his toys back to you. He likes sunbathing, can be a bit mischievous outdoors, and never likes to go back into the house unless he hears his toys squeaking or food being offered. He can be a little overprotective and needs supervision when people are over, but overall he does warm up easily to people he sees repetitively. In his new home, I hope someone can take him out on more frequent walks/dog parks, tend to his playful attitude during the day and cuddle him during the rainy nights.

Story
Charlie boy came to me as a rescue. He was in pretty bad shape. After having him for one year he is very protective over me. He is house trained, he can sit, and shake. He’s very Smart. He also has trust issues because of where he came from. Due to this he would need to go to the perfect home that will allow him to trust you. I don’t know think a home with little kids would be a great fit, I also don’t know how he would do in a home with other dogs. He has a dog brother but he has been with him since he was small and they get along fine.
