Bruno Joe reporting in to rescue.
Let me tell you a little about myself. I had a family but there were a lot of things going on that were out of my control so after some discussion I told my mom and dad I should probably head out to Lone Star Bulldog Rescue. They were sad but we all agreed it was for the best and here I am. Next thing I knew this nice man came and picked me up and away we went into the wild blue yonder. He told me I was a handsome boy and was loving on me and giving me all kinds of attention. I’m not shy and love people.
I am a 7 year old strong boy and I weigh 46 pounds right now. I have some eye issues that this nice lady called Doc Larsen said they would be working to fix. She told me I was a bit on the skinny side and needed to put on a little weight. I can’t wait since that means I get to eat and will hopefully get snacks. I love snacks. She also told me they would check me out to make sure I was in good shape for my forever family.
Did I tell you I was strong, very strong and may need a little work on my leash manners.
Once I get my physical I’ll post some more to let you know how I am doing. In the meantime, fill out your application so I can start looking thru them to find my forever family.
2/11/21 Update: I am finally in a place with more people than dogs… now I can get ALL of the attention I deserve.
Sunday I got to be the perfect Valentine but then all of this white stuff came down and made me very cold. By Monday there was no heart to keep me warm even though FM tried to cover me during the night.
Tuesday was so cold that we got to go to a friend’s house where I got to play with Murphy, another 4 legged boy. He did not like me because I wanted to get love from his Mom too so he would growl but we learned to play fine and I even had a backyard to run in…jumping through that snow was the BEST fun once I got used to it and, when we came in, if we cooperated with the paw wipe, we got treats…my favorite.
FM was happy to know that I can play well with others and that I am full of energy still – especially if you have a yard for me.
Maybe it’s too late for me to be your Valentine but maybe I can be your leprechaun?
I know FM loves me but I know she wants me to be happy…that might be with you?
3/2/21 Update: Hi fans. Bruno Joe reporting in from my favorite spot…in FM’s bed waiting to plop myself against her. I love to cuddle and hope you do too as I am looking for a forever family that loves being as close to me as I am to them. FM also tells me what a good boy I am when we go for walks as I do my business and do not lollygag
Look in to my eyes and at my squished face and see if you can resist my charms…I know FM cannot so please tell me you want to make me yours forever.
3/15/21 Update: I’m checking in on my last night in my vacation home. The proprietors at this VRBO have already rated me 5 out of 5 as a guest!
He was willing to sit and plop down for anyone willing to pet him despite being focused on finding people to feed him or drop food.
Today he is still so tired that he is curled up next to my work areas, snoring away.
Top 10 Reasons to NOT adopt Bruno
10) His FM and Foster Sis love him too much
9) He is too selfish and wants to sit in your seat all the time and take selfies(See attached)
8) He has too many wrinkles and you would have to pet them and smoosh them daily
7) His eyes are magic and mesmerize us in to petting him and giving him treats
6) He is too well-behaved on walks which means too many strangers can come up to pet him and he will just let them
5) He is lazy and only wants to do whatever you want to do…lie in the sun, read a book in bed, get food
4) He is too willing to befriend other dogs…just wants to play and be loved
3) He is too comfortable in his environment…willing to plop down next to me, sparing me a little space in the bed for sleeping
2) He is too unaware of his age…I mean he’s 7 but still acts like a pup…come on!!!!
And the #1 reason you should NOT adopt Bruno…
1) He is TOO perfect all around and would only make you happy 365 days a year, spoiling you for any other dogs you may want.
4/5/21 Update: Does this “toy” make me look “pail,” she asked. Not funny, Foster Mom, but, because you gave me an empty pail (missing my Easter toys and candy), I still plan to play with it.
4/26/21 Update: I have been staying in something called a hotel with Foster Mom while the house gets fixed. I do not like the tile floors and I am very afraid of elevators. Not sure if it is the noise, the movement, the slippery floor or what, but Foster Mom had to drag me in there and hold me. This week, we are on the ground floor and I am so very grateful because I love all the new smells outside.
5/4/21 Update: Does this pose make my butt look big, asked Bruno?
