53548 – Bruno
Medical Case – Heartworms 🙁
Why choose me? Update from Bruno’s foster 9/5: Everything is going so well with Bruno! He really is the perfect dog. He loves rides in the truck, loves his walks but otherwise sleeps for most of the day, loves snuggling with us on the couch or on the bed, and has not made one sound since he came home with us. He loves strangers too! His cutest quirk is his obsession with burying his rawhide bones! When he gets one, he immediately digs a hole and hides it. He knows exactly where all of them are hidden and digs them up the next evening or next day for a little chew before hiding them in a new location to save for later. Also, he actually seems to like baths (or not hate them)! He didn’t struggle at all and now he is very silky and smells nice! Update 9/1: Meet Bruno, our new foster dog! It was a big day for this guy! There were walks, baths, truck rides, new toys, and lots of human attention, which he loves! He’s such a sweet boy and we’re so happy we get to have him with us until he finds his forever home. Update 7/31: The one dog we’ve visited every week since the shelter reopened to volunteers is Bruno. He is truly one of the sweetest souls. He adores people, loves a good belly rub, and wants to lay up against you or on your lap soaking in the attention. He never jumps, never seems too boisterous. He just needs a couch to call his own. 😉 Update 7/20: Bruno is pure bliss. He just wanted to sit with me like this. When I took my arm off of him due to the 90+ degree heat 😅 … he nudged his head under my arm and demanded I get back to loving on him! 😂 he’s such a good natured boy! While Bruno may look a little worse for wear, with scabs and scars on his face and legs, he’s got a heart of gold. He adored Jane, who was in the pen next to him, but each time I called him he trotted over happily. He’s not a high energy guy, preferring sniffs and cuddle to ball-fetching. Unfortunately, he has tested positive for heartworms. Athenspets will help with the cost of his treatment, but an adopter or rescue will need to be prepared for some additional cost and the exercise constraints of treatment.
