A volunteer writes: A necktie is a gift, a necklace is a gift, a sweater is a gift – an animal should not be a gift as we all need to select the animal that suits our personal life style. Bruno was a gift and was too active for the recipient, and like all puppies requires training. He’s an energetic little fellow, tail waggy, playful, and thinks that biting on his leash is a fun thing to do. Like all puppies he’s amused with everything and thinks everything is a potential toy. Bag blowing in the street? Go for it! Empty bottle lying there? Yup, that’s good! We’re told that Bruno lived with two young children and plays puppy rough (he needs to learn), is very housetrained and will alert his person at 6:30AM that he needs to go out (how smart is he?!). He’s active and playful and greets all strangers like long lost friends and is nervous with loud noises such as thunder. Off leash in the yard Bruno loved playing with a ball, is a bit mouthy in puppy play, and loved snuggling in my lap once he was played out. With other dogs in group he’s social and playful, engaging in typical rough puppy play. Puppies aren’t for everyone….like children they need to learn boundaries, have structure, and be taught everything with positive reinforcement training and lots of love. Bruno is all puppy simply waiting for his new person to find him and ready to learn everything he needs to know to grow into a rockstar adult.
Bruno A1058840 is an approximately 5 onth old Staffordshire Mix puppy. He was a gift to the Owner from a friend, less then a week ago. the main reason for surrender is that Bruno is too active for the Owner and needs training. Bruno doesw not have any health conceerns.
Bruno is verry friendly and outgoing with strtangers. He lived with a 4 year old child and a 9 month old baby. Bruno plays somewhat rough with adults and children for which he needs training for. Bruno did not live with any other animal.
Bruno will chew through household items andf even sheet rock walls if you leave him alone. During storms, fireworks, or loud noises, he is very nervous and runs back and forth. If you touch his food bowl, water bowl or toy, he is not bothered. Bruno is not bothered ifg you awaken him, or push him off of furniture or if you restrain him. When an unfamiliar approaches the owner, he jumps at the person to greet them.
FOR A NEW FAMILY TO KNOW
Bruno is best described as friendly, affectionate and playfull. He has a very high activity level. He loves to play and around. He plays with a stuffed animal and a thick rubber bone. He was kept mostly indoors. Bruno slept on a quilt in owners room. He eats Purina puppy chow, open bowl. He likes bacon strips from Blue Buffalo. He is very house trained and alerts you at 6:30 am that he needs to go potty. He does potty on grass. He listens to the command sit, and stay. For exercise he would be slow walked on the leash.
BEHAVIOR DURING INTAKE
Bruno was very hyper with a loose wiggly body. He allowed all handling including scanning, collaring and having his picture taken.
