BRUNO – 10129
Safe - 11-3-2017 Manhattan Rescue: Amsterdog Animal Rescue Please honor your pledges:
Hello, my name is Bruno. My animal id is #10129. I am a desexed male brown dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 5 years 7 months old.
I came into the shelter as a owner surrender on 18-Oct-2017, with the surrender reason stated as person circumstance- landlord won’t allow.
Bruno is at risk due to being diagnosed with Canine Upper Respiratory Disease Complex which is contagious to other dogs. He will likely require in home care with a course of antibiotics. There are no know behavior concerns for Bruno at this time (Average determination).
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
A volunteer writes: Bruno is with us for no fault of his own. His family was evicted and he too is now homeless and hoping to start his life again with a new owner. Yes, like kids, pets can not do it alone….They need us…Bruno has been so well cared for. The perfect weight, a gorgeous seasonal coat, short nails and a strong affinity for people. He appears house trained, was taught to sit for a treat and to play ball…He seems even good with other dogs in the street and in playgroups with his peers. Bruno is understandably a little stressed wondering what is this sudden change in scenery and protagonists….Where does he stand? Where does he go from here? This is why maybe he sometimes feebly complains, displaying a wary little face and asking for comfort from his caretakers. Bruno absolutely loves butt scratches and wiggles like a Chinese New Year Dragon… He is a very handsome dog! A strong one too who pulls on the leash, does his business in the street, ignores pigeons and does not respond to dogs trying to look for trouble. He loves to play ball and will relentlessly run close to the ground, jump high in the air and performs amazing head shots. I forgot to say that he can catch treats in mid air… Playing is serious business to Bruno.. Bruno was loved, I believe and treated like a pet should be…Let’s hope that a new and happy debut is in the cards for Bruno… Come and meet him soon at the Manhattan Care Center. Another volunteer writes: Remember Tattoo from Fantasy Island calling out, ‘The plane, the plane’. If so you can certainly hear Bruno calling out, ‘The ball, the ball”!! Bruno is a master ball player. He waits for the throw, eyes sparkling, tail wagging, mouth slightly open in excitement and anticipation. I’m not sure who had more fun playing, him or me! He always brings it back for another throw, not quite at my feet, but close. At one time we had two balls in play and when they landed close to one another he nosed one, then the other, then the first, clearly not knowing which to pick up. Bruno is a gorgeous red head, likely housetrained, nice clean coat and perfect weight. He enjoys treats, taking them with the very edge of his teeth, so gently I barely feel it. When there’s a ball around, petting comes in second, so while we snuck in a few petting sessions, it was all about ‘the ball, the ball’. A few demand ‘woof’s’ if I was too slow with my throw kept me on my toes. Bruno pulls hard on the leash so a harness and some leash training will help make both sides of the leash enjoy a walk. He’s ready to be the star of your home team, so come meet him today.
My medical notes are…
Weight: 55.8 lbs
