Bruno has been through a lot in the past few months but his luck has now changed and he has a bright future in front of him. He was surrendered to a rural county dog shelter in very poor condition. As you can see in his shelter photo, every bone in his body was visible. The woman who turned him in said that he had belonged to her husband but that her husband had left her and left the dog behind. She claimed that Bruno refused to eat because he was missing the husband. The shelter suspected, however, that she was intentionally starving Bruno out of spite as he had a voracious appetite the moment he entered the shelter. We saw his sad shelter photo and wanted to help this boy so he made the trip to Canine Lifeline so he could gets lots of TLC before finding himself a great new home. Bruno weighed about 30 pounds at the shelter but now looks to be at his ideal weight in the 40s. He continues to be wild about food so his new family will have to watch him so that he doesn’t get too heavy. Bruno does well in his crate and enjoys snoozing on his comfy bed. He’s quite strong on a leash so will need some work in that area but his food motivation should make obedience training a positive experience. Bruno’s a very sweet boy who loves to give his kisses and who’ll be forever grateful for the person or family that gives the wonderful life he deserves. His adoption fee is $250. He’s neutered, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations including bivalent canine influenza, wormed, on flea and tick preventative, and microchipped. As part of the adoption process, all adopters must commit to a two-week adjustment period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized. Please email if you’re interested in Bruno. An approved application is required before we schedule meets with any of our dogs. We have no foster homes with young children so aren’t comfortable placing any of them in a home with children less than 7 years of age. We try to respond to inquiries within 72 hours so if you haven’t heard from us within that time frame, please check your junkmail or spam folder to make sure our reply hasn’t landed in there.
