Bruno is a 3yr old male Presa Canario Mastiff that has no past or current medical issues that the owner is aware. of.
According to the owner Bruno is friendly towards strangers and when interacting with them he plays in a somewhat rough manner due to his size. He has been in the presence of children and doesn’t interact with them much but when he does it was recommended that he is supervised. Not for aggression but due to his size and he interacts with children fine. According to the owner when Bruno was younger he interacted him with other dogs and he got along with them fine. In more recent times he hasn’t interacted him with other dogs due to other dog owners being fearful of allowing thier dog to interact with him due to his size. When passing or he see’s another dog Bruno will bark at them. The owner has never had a cat around for him to interact with and they don’t know how he will respond. Bruno has never bitten a person or another animal.
Bruno doesn’t have any guarding issues when it comes to food, treats, and toys. These items can be given and taken away with no problems according to the owner. He also take well to all grooming agents like receiving a bath, having his nails trimmed, and the brushing his coat. It can be struggle because of how large he is but that would be the only issue.
For a New Family to Know:
Bruno is described to be friendly, affectionate, playful, excitable, and anxious with a medium to high activity level. When in the home Bruno is the type of dog that will follow you around seeking attention or be in the same room. Bruno enjoys all sorts of dog toys and will play with just about anything. It was recommended by the owner to give him toys that are durable and won’t be destryed as easy. Bruno is an indoor only dog that is house broken. When its time for Bruno to sleep the owner either lets him sleep wherever around the home or his dog crate. Bruno takes well to being in a dog crate and has been left in one for up to 8hours. Bruno was brought up on a raw food diet according to the owner. When left alone in the home Bruno can be destructive of household items. He knows a few basic commands like sit, down, and leave it. For daily exercise Bruno was taken for slow walks and let out into the yard. When on a leash he pulls very hard.
SAFER : Experienced NO child Home
Bruno came into our center as an owner surrender citing moving into a small apartment. It is reported Bruno has been around children but only when supervised due to his size and sometimes playing in a rough manner. Behavior around cats is unknown. Owner reports Bruno isn’t bothered if anyone touches his Food, Treats, or Toys. It is reported Bruno is housebroken and crate trained though he is not always crated. Owner states sometimes Bruno can be destructive of household items if left alone in the home. He is described as friendly, affectionate, playful, and excitable. During intake, Bruno was friendly and allowed all handling. He pulled on leash for his relief walk. Bruno would jump up on the assessor at times, though for his size he jumped softly. He jumped up and licked assessor’s face during Look item. Bruno leaned into assessor during Sensitivity item, open mouth pant, jumping up at end of item. He was distracted and unresponsive during Tag game. Bruno gently pulled his paw back on both Squeeze attempts. He grabbed Toy a bit quickly, keeping a firm grip, no growling or stiffness. Bruno approached the helper dog at an appropriate pace, ears and tail neutral. It appears Bruno can become overstimulated at times and therefore based on his size and strength, the Behavior Team feels Bruno would do best with an Experienced Adopter that does Not Have Children. He would benefit from daily mental and physical stimulation in the forms of walks, runs, exercise, play as well as durable toys such as kongs and nylabones to positively direct his energy and enthusiasm. Bruno may benefit from obedience classes to learn leash manners and body awareness.
