Meet Bruiser

Retriever mix
4 years old
Neutered Male
Adoption fee: $150

Bruiser is a sweet fun dog who can be nervous at times with meeting new people (especially men) and loud noises. He lived successfully with children as young as 1 year old, and would be okay with kids of any age with responsible parents that can introduce them together. He has a history of not doing well with cats in the past, so no cats in the home. He did very well with another female dog, but did have a couple of scuffles with the male dog in the previous home. The right dog with the right management would be fine for him to go home, as long as you are aware they will need to be watched.

We always recommend crate training, exercise, playtime, and a regular schedule for potty breaks when bringing a new dog into your home. The shelter environment is much different than your home, so expect the unexpected. We do our best to help find the right pet for you, but your new dog may act differently on your turf than he/she did on ours. Adjustment takes time for both you and your new family member, so remember to be patient and enjoy this new and exciting time!

Included in the adoption fee are rabies (if applicable) & distemper vaccinations, heartworm testing, deworming, spay or neuter surgery.
