Meet Bruno

LOCATION: Dayton, Ohio
DOB: 04/22/2015 (Estimate)

The name’s Bruno and I’m hitting the open market. Now, don’t everyone start mashing buttons and clicking on my adoption link at the same time. I’d hate to be the reason the internet crashes! Let’s just go low and slow and I will start by telling you a little bit about myself.

First, when I see an empty lap or a beckoning shoulder, my head becomes instantly and abnormally heavy. I MUST lay it down in or on one of those places. Cuddling is a fact.

I also have paws larger than a lion’s. (Ok-not really, but they are really big). Sometimes my brain and my paws and my mouth do not always communicate effectively together. My brain says, “Stay chill, Bruno. You got this big guy. Deep breaths.” My paws however scream, “Everyone needs a big hug!!” And my mouth says a teensy taste won’t bother anyone. Getting these three body parts to coordinate is a work in progress. So being around children is a no. Sorry about that.

What is a yes, though, is my finesse at slipping delectable treats right off the table without anyone seeing me. It is an art that I have mastered. I have not quite mastered, though, sharing my toys or meals.

If you would like to have, or maybe you already have, other critters at your home, I am okay with some, but not others. I'm curious about cats, but don’t chase them. Other dogs are okay as long as we have slow, proper, and controlled introductions. Ducks are cool. I’d prefer no goats. Livestock is okay as long as we are separated by a fence.

My kennel is my safe space. I am housetrained and I will let you know when it is time to go outside. And if I pass by a mirror on the way, I will stop and check myself out. Sometimes I like to lay in front of the mirror, too, and then get up every so often to make sure I'm still there. Never fails. I'm always still there. Cardboard box pieces have a weird way of ending up in mouth so my foster momma’s advice is to keep those up where I can’t get them.

I have a bum eye that I don’t see great out of. Not a big deal. Doesn’t stop me from holding tennis balls in my mouth. If it is a fireworks night, I would prefer to have my humans with me at all times. My head will be extra heavy that night and some extra lovings will be in order. In general, I would love to have a very low traffic home.

Take a moment and contemplate what your life would be like with me (and gasp! without me). We are talking Great. Grand. Wonderful. Or Sad. No smiling faces. Heartbreak. If it were me-I’d go with the obvious one. (See! We made it through the end without anything crashing. Although maybe we are trending?)
