A volunteer writes: This noble, handsome fellow was surrendered by his owner due to a housing issue, but until that moment, he was living happily in an apartment with a 1 year child with whom he played oh-so-sweetly, showing off his glorious house-training (he’s a total champ about only going outside, even when he has to wait quite a while), and ability to follow basic commands like “sit.” Bruno is not only gorgeous, but also such a love to everyone around him, a kind, kind boy who cannot show enough affection to everyone he meets. (He’s also very easy going–his former owner says he has no problem with baths, having his food taken away, or being pushed off the furniture.) The one thing Bruno doesn’t seem to have figured out–through no fault of his own–is that the goal of being attached to a leash is not to make the person on the other end of it fly like a superhero; he’s so eager to please that we are sure he will have leash-walking down in a snap with a patient new owner! We love this dog and we know you will, too. Please come meet him and give him a chance to show you his super hero charm.
