Bruno the Magnificent

Bruno…it’s an awfully tough-sounding name for such a sweet guy.  But Bruno IS a tough guy—on the inside.

Bruno came to Pet Project originally as a stray.  He was with us for about 5 or 6 months before being adopted.  He was with his family for about a year before coming back to us this past January.  His family had several dogs…so many that it had become too much for them to handle. 

Owner surrenders always tug at my heart.  I was there the day Bruno was brought back—he was nervous, that was obvious.  I know he had to be confused about his new circumstances.  But here’s where the “tough” part comes in:  He is being as patient as he can be while waiting for his forever family to come along.  Just this past week, he was in his outside kennel while Janice & I were at the perimeter fence.  Two of his “neighbors” were outside too…and they were barking up a storm at us.  But, not Bruno.  He just sat there, calm and curious as to what we were doing.  We said “hi” to him and were rewarded with a wag of his tail. 

Bruno is a 2-3 year old, housebroken(!) shepherd mix.  He is a large, strong dog and will thrive with a family that can provide him with the exercise he needs.  He loves to play and go for walks.  He gets along well with other dogs, but, ideally, he’d probably like to have just one canine sibling to play with.

Come meet this handsome fella—he will steal your heart.
