Why choose me?

Update 3/1: Thanks to donations to the Spay/Neuter Fund, Bruce is neutered and up-to-date on his basic vaccinations!

Update 2/23: Unfortunately, Bruce has tested positive for heartworms. While Athenspets would try to help with the cost, an adopter needs to be prepared for the cost and exercise restrictions of heartworm treatment. To learn more about heartworms, including how to prevent and treat them, please go to the American Heartworm Society’s webpage.

Bruce has the personality of an explorer and curious George combined!! He is so into sniffing every corner of the interaction pen picking up on scents from the other dogs there previously. He seemed to enjoy exploring so I let him do his thing. I gave him a few treats when he finally decided to come to me and ask for loving. He seemed to have had a rough start but he’s so sweet and gentle with everyone he comes in contact with. He was curious about a neighboring dog in the other pen. He would sniff the other dog and walk up and down the fence with him trying to figure him out. He seemed to do well with other dogs, even the smaller ones like the one he enjoyed the company of. Bruce does well on a leash and loves treats.
