And now a few words from me:
Hello. My name is Bruce as in ‘Springsteen’. Everyone says I am super cute but my foster mommy says I am more than just a pretty face. I can be shy at first but once I get to know you I am really playful and will follow you everywhere. My favourite things in no particular order are: playing with my toys, laying in the sunshine, being gently brushed, snuggling on my pillow and giving kisses to my foster mommy. I sleep in my crate at night because I am a ‘big’ boy. I try so hard to please and when you call me a good boy or a brave boy it makes me so happy. The world is a very big place and there is so much to discover. Where I stayed before was on one level so my new family will need to teach me to be careful and especially mindful of stairs. I hope my special person will be patient and spend a lot of time with me as I don’t like to be alone. In return, I will cuddle beside you in front of the TV and love you forever!
And now a few words from my foster family:
Bruce is a very sweet and gorgeous little boy. He is happy to play with his toys and has bursts of energy as he shows off his babies. He is curious but needs reassurance to explore new places. Being a former mill dog, he is sensitive to loud noises and sudden movements. Bruce is also super quick when he wants to be so wearing a leash while getting familiar with his new home would be extremely important. Walking on a leash is a new experience and he prefers the sidewalk to grass. He is extremely smart, learns quickly and responds well to praise and treats.
Bruce is very affectionate with those he trusts and is a big cuddler! He would benefit from an owner that will have a lot of time to spend with him (a stay at home owner would be ideal!), who is patient and willing to shower him with love and attention. This little guy will make a wonderful, loyal and loving companion for one very lucky family!
