Bruno is one of these dogs who are just, for lack of a better word, happy. He wasn’t always happy, or this social, but he is now, and it’s fun watching his personality come out. So far:
1) He always has a big grin.
2) He is very food motivated (always an excellent trait for dog training). He doesn’t know the command ‘sit’ just yet, but a gentle hand placed on his back serves as a nice reminder and it shouldn’t be long before he sits automatically! Update: He’s a pro at sitting!
3) He adores people. To him, people = warmth+peace+happiness rolled in one. Plus, they have hands. The hands are for dispensing yummy treats and even better, bellyrubs!
4) He’s a complete snugglebunny. He loves to lean against you (you may want to be against a wall if you ever met him, he’s been known to make me sit flat on my butt if I just squat next to him). He loves it even more if you lean back, then it’s a lean o’ war contest. He’s very furry and relatively big, so this might be a useful winter warming tip…
5) He’s got a wide range of expressions that will make you laugh. For example:
Bruno would be an excellent dog for a single or multiple family home (older children only) and would get along with other dogs (especially if they are snugglebunnies like him). He’s around 3 years old, appears to be a collie/shep mix (though I just call him the great red furry dog). If you think you’d love Bruno and have lots of love to offer, come see him in Kennel 18.
