Bruce

Bruce is a squishy bundle of giddy happiness! He’s a big chunky lad, so he needs a home with people who can handle his size.

Bruce is super interested in food – anyone who offers this guy a treat is instantly his best friend. He already knows some basic training – ‘sit’, ‘paw’, ‘lie down’ and with his passion for tasty treats, he could quickly learn more. Be quick with the treats though because Bruce hasn’t got much patience when it comes to a tasty morsel and he’ll bark if it’s not delivered on time!

Bruce is great to walk – he just toddles along and he’s very interested in all the sniffs, so he hardly raises his head. All the volunteers want to walk Bruce first! He doesn’t need long walks – he’s usually had enough after half an hour. A few 30 minute walks each day and a careful diet will help Bruce maintain his figure. He is currently losing weight and we will keep him on a controlled calorie count until he’s at a healthy weight.

Bruce is crate trained and goes in there to sleep by choice. He barks when people come into the house so his owner bobs him in the crate and once he’s quietened down, he can come out to greet visitors. He has been super friendly with everyone he’s met in the kennels.

Bruce is good when having a bath and towel dry, and when he’s visiting the vets (once he’s in the consultation room away from other waiting pets). Bruce is a noisy traveller though – he barks in the car when he knows where he’s going and that’s he’s getting close to his destination!

Bruce can be left home alone for a few hours in his crate without any worries and he is house trained. Bruce will be a great addition to anyone’s sofa.
