12/13/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Surrendered to our care for being “too active” for the owner, Bruno indeed is a youngster with a youngster’s energy level. He’s lively and fun, playful, and when he warms up to his person, gives kisses, and loves to be petted. We’re told he’s relaxed and playful with people he doesn’t know, doesn’t guard his things, loves to play tug of war, is housetrained with regular walks, and doesn’t mind baths. Bruno and I had a nice walk to the park, Bruno showing off his housetraining skills on the way, and once in the par, chasing birds and squirrels. So fun! Bruno is a bit too thin in my opinion, but his coat is lush and gorgeous. He does a semi sit for a treat — it’s sort of a sit and then bounce. Once I achieved friend status (which didn’t take long at all), Bruno was in my lap for a quick hug and a kiss. Yes, he’s playful and lively as he should be as a young pup. He’s looking for an active home where playtime, fun time, walk or jog time is all the time. If you lead an active lifestyle and would love company as you go about your activities, then Bruno is the guy you want by your side. Come meet him today!!
