BRUCE Border Collie Mix Point Richmond, CA
- Spayed / neutered.
The Milo Foundation AnimalID is 17601 and the Current Location is in Foster Care. Please see our website www.milofoundation.org for the current status of this animal. Sanctuary Update: Bruce is just an amazing and loving dog, but he does have some trust issues with being handled by strangers. He is an extremely bonding and cuddly boy, but he does need time to build that friendship initially. He prefers for new people to let him come up and say hi, stiff and maybe even lean into them affectionately, but would prefer that they keep their hands to themselves. He does show when he is uncomfortable by doing a lip curl, and if people are respectful of this he opens back up again. It does take several interactions with Bruce before he lets his guard down and trusts someone, but with Bruce, once you're in you're in! Bruce is just a gem of a dog, and will make an amazing and loyal companion for someone that lives a low key, predictable and rural life. He listens extremely well and is very eager to please his friends and loved ones. He would not be best suited for a city environment given that he is unsure of new people and needs the time to bond before being his regular wonderful and cuddly self. Former Bio: Bruce is a handsome chunk of love! He is an active boy who loves long walks and hikes, as well as plenty of love and stimulation to burn off some of that border collie energy! He is an extremely intelligent dog with great potential. He listens well and is eager to please. He can be pretty mouthy when playing but has no intention of biting. In fact, he does a funny lip curl when he's playing, which can make him took a bit ferocious. But, don't worry, its all a front to make him look tough! He gets along well with other dogs, but can be a bit macho with some male dogs. Bruce can be uncomfortable if handled by strangers before getting to know them, so for this reason we would prefer a home without young children while he builds his confidence. If you are looking for a slowing down, yet active sweetheart, and preferably have experience with herding breeds, BRUCE IS YOUR MAN!
