We’ve talked about Bruno before - the handsome, energetic, good vibes tan and white pittie mix who has known shelter life since January. Not even 2 years old, (1 year and 7 months actually), he doesn’t understand why he’s been overlooked for so long, nor do the folks at the Cuyahoga County Animal Shelter. He’s even been to Miracle K9 training school (a 30 day board and train program), and he’s eager to show off his smarts and skills, but people continue to pass him by. The folks at the shelter know how disheartening this can be, so they hooked Bruno up and he is now in a foster home, to give him a sense of belonging and to prepare him for his perfect person or family. We know you’re out there!
If you’ve ever been overlooked by a team you know you’d be great on, you know how Bruno feels. Bruno walks well on a leash, knows the commands to come when called, sit and lay down when asked and is working on furthering his off leash commands. He also has the makings of an agility or rally dog - and that’s no small feet. It takes smarts, and major obedience skills, and everyone who's met Bruno believes with continued training, he'd be great at either sport. If this training talk intimidates you - worry not! He comes with his basic training supplies, go home lessons, plus, follow up training at Miracle K9, free of charge. If you thought that dogs don't come with a training manual, this one does!!
Bruno is great with kids, but they are recommending his family have older children and even though he also does well with other dogs, he'd be happiest as your one and only copilot.
Remember that foster homes are always needed and help the shelter save even more. Read about the benefits of fostering here. You can also help the shelter through donations, supplies or volunteering. Consider a Cage Sponsorship or contributing to their Medical Relief Fund. Every little bit helps!
