Hey There! They call me Bruce. I love to snuggle and be a couch potato. I graduated from a training camp where I spent 10 weeks learning many different commands and losing the many extra pounds I had. I am still a big guy but definitely not overweight. I am hoping for a family that is active and can help me continue my training. Because I am such a big boy it is recommended that my new home has no kids or they must be older.
I DO NOT like cats!! Honestly, I don't understand why a person wants a fuzz ball that wants to be left alone when they could have a big sweet boy like me that wants to play and hang out with you.
I am selective when it comes to other dogs. If there is another dog it would probably be better to be a large, submissive dog. It is not that I want to be the boss I just don't like being bossed around.
So if you would like to adopt me you know the deal...fill out the adoption application (link is right here on my page). If you are not able to make that kind of commitment there is also fostering or Dog for a Day program.
Bruce graduated from the Training camp and has learned so much from it to help him become a great addition to your family.
About Training Camp: Pet Rescue By Judy has teamed up with an incredible program called the Greyhound Advancement Center which will allow some of our dogs to attend a ten-week prison training program. The program originally started to help retired racing greyhounds learn how to “dog”.
Greyhound racing is now illegal in our state, but the program worked so well that they decided to open up to other rescues and accept different breeds. Each dog is teamed up with an inmate who is in their dog training program. This program allows inmates to gain an important skill that they can bring with them when they are released. The head trainers are the best of the best and we are sure that these dogs are going to come out of this program with all kinds of tricks up their little doggy sleeves. (Don’t worry, the dogs are treated very well and are the apple of their trainer’s eye ).
Our dogs are so blessed to be able to learn important obedience training to help with their confidence and make them awesome additions to a family.
We can not thank Greyhound Advancement Center enough for giving these dogs a leg up on getting into their forever home!
