December, 2012 - Rest In Peace, dear Mr. Bruno!
feels good on these old bones!! Let me bring some sushine into
your heart, won't you?
and my best friend, Miss Ruby!!
Originally in the summer of 2008 he was in a shelter
in Reno and wasn't doing well in a shelter situation. An all breed
rescue pulled him and had him fostered for several months. He
was listed on PetFinders and no takers. He then moved to another
foster with that group because the first foster was leaving for
Europe for 2 months. He fit in well in both homes but his presence
meant that they were limited in being able to add another adoptable
dog. A plea went out by email and I was contacted. Since I'm a
sucker for the seniors, I agreed to take him.
Bruno is not good with cats. He's ambivalent with
most other dogs. He's housetrained, likes his big crate with thick
pad. He sits and that's about it for obedience. He walks OK on
a leash. He's just a funny, slightly senile fellow who just wants
to BE... happy!
Physically, he's just a little deaf, doesn't see
well in dimly lit rooms or at night, a little arthritic but probably
15 lbs overweight.
