What can I tell you – Bru is a gentlepup and a beauty. Underweight and heartworm positive when he came into rescue, Bru has successfully completed heartworm treatment and currently weighs in at a healthy 53 pounds.

An extremely sweet and affectionate Britt he is very loving and wants nothing more than to please his humans! He is no longer known as “Bru-NO” but prefers being called Bru (BruBaby, BruBoy, Bru-tiful, Bru-talicious, Suba-Bru). Since joining ABR this boy has been through some trying times. He has transitioned from living outdoors, has conquered housetraining, has gained an appreciation for toys (especially the squeaky ones) and successfully completed treatment for heartworm disease. Throughout his ordeals Bru has been a trooper and delight to all humans. Canines on the other hand are an issue of concern. During puppyhood Bru was not socialized with other dogs and he is A-F-R-A-I-D of other canines to the extreme. Bru has been evaluated by a behaviorist and is working on overcoming his extreme reaction to other canines however is a work in progress. His foster family is working with Bru to redirect and control what could be a volatile situation when in close proximity to other canines. This is an ongoing process and extensive training is necessary.

This boy needs be included in an active family’s day to day life. Crated for long hours will result in a wild man with excess energy to burn. No long distance or sight unseen adoptions for Bruno. We feel it is important that all family members meet to assure that we have a good fit. Bru is a sweet dog and a wonderful Brit who is anxious for your forever love and companionship. If you would like to considered for this wonderful guy complete the adoption application.
