Meet Bruno

Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy …. I am really glad you are checking out my profile as I am one heck of a neat little guy!!

“Bruno” is my name, by the way. Yeah, my name may seem a little “tough,” but I am a sweet, happy young boy who has plenty of energy for an active family that will let me play, jump, run and be a doggy.

When I was asked if I wanted to go for a car ride, I wagged my tail, so I am sure I could be a good car ride buddy, too. I am proud to say I do pretty darn well on a leash, but sometimes I want to pull just a teensy bit so I can smell the next smell.

I know you will love to pet my easy-to-care-for short brindle coat since I am soooo soft and silky. (Am I bragging a bit?) I am not too big and not too small – I am just right. Even though I am a medium size dog, that doesn’t stop me from trying to squeeze my cute little love bug body on your lap and lick your face and show you how much I would LOVE being your new bestest friend! Did I mention I have plenty of kisses to give?

I would love a home where my human siblings are 8 years old or older. This way they will be able to play with me lots more and throw my toys for me since I love attention. Yup, I love my toys and guess what … I will go get them and bring them back to you as well. I know “down” and “sit” so I can patiently wait for you to throw my toys to me again and again. I find this super fun. I am treat-motivated as well so that helps me stay focused. I do tend to like to eat out of my bowl by myself though if that’s okay. If I am going to have any doggy siblings, I would need to meet them first to see if they are willing to play with me. I am sure they would like me (I mean who wouldn’t) but I’d like a chance to meet them to make sure we can play well together. I find cats interesting, but I can leave them alone if you remind me that they don’t want to play.

I am looking forward to a fun, loving home to call my own. I am a good boy with good manners so please come check me out and see if I could be a great addition to your family. Please contact the Allegan County Animal Shelter operated by the Wishbone Pet Rescue Alliance at 269-686-5112 or come visit me during the shelter hours. I CANNOT WAIT TO MEET YOU!!
