Rest in peace. February 2004-July 2017.


Bruno is a chunky, mellow hippo looking for a forever home. He is great with children and other large dogs. He has not had much experience with small dogs and has not been around cats. He would love to live in a home with another large, mellow dog who he can lounge with. Bruno very rarely barks. He does not mind being given a bath and is PERFECT on car rides. He would not need a very active lifestyle but still enjoys walks and outings. His favorite thing to do is snore by your feet or play fetch. As of February 2017 Bruno is about 13 years old. Bruno is neutered, chipped, and UTD on vaccinations. He is partially (if not completely deaf) but his vision is great and he follows hand commands. He only barks playfully when you get him excited but he does not bark at home when left alone or when people come to the door. He does not chew on anything and is fully potty trained. His old owner surrendered him to us because he was moving and could not take Bruno with him. Bruno currently lives with a toddler and an infant and previously grew up with children. He also currently lives with 4 other dogs and 3 cats. He does not interact with the cats and is uninterested in them. He has lived with numerous large dogs (even rambunctious puppies) and did well with them. He is a total love and a very gentle soul. He LOVES back scratches and exploring in the backyard. Bruno would do well in lots of different environments as he has an overall mellow and gentle demeanor. He weighs about 85 pounds. Bruno is pretty perfect!
