Age: 7 years Gender: Male Color: Liver & White Weight: 55 lbs Variety: Field Bruno is a big guy who is just full of love. He came into ESRA's care with his son, Goliath, after their owners lost their home. Bruno was morbidly obese at seventy pounds when he came into rescue. We're very pleased to report that he has since lost all the extra weight! Bruno's love of walks and catching the ball made it a very easy weight loss with no dieting involved.
Bruno is a good boy who walks nicely on the leash and comes when he is called. He is housetrained. We have not tested him off leash or with cats. He seems to have a low prey drive, but he loves to play catch and swim. He is not food or toy aggressive.
Though Bruno is the father of Goliath, these two guys couldn't be any more different from each other, except for their sweet natures and good manners. They came into rescue together, but both dogs would do well in separate homes.
Bruno does have some allergies, but he is on an antihistamine which is helping him. A high quality food would be in order for Bruno. All in all, he is healthy, happy, and ready for his Forever Home. So if you think that home might be yours, please contact Bruno's case managers at the e-mail address below.
Please note that an approved adoption application is the first step in a more thorough interview process that is designed to match each dog to exactly the right family, and that the final decision rests with the dog's case manager.
Please read the Adoption FAQ and get an Adoption Application approved before inquiring about Bruno.
