Bruno gets along with female dogs, but probably not good to live with males. Even though he lost his hearing, he still is a great watchdog: he feels movement and hears some sound via bones in his ears. (Just try opening the refrigerator if he’s awake!).
He is nine years old and as sweet & loveable as ever.


EMAIL UPDATE RECEIVED 1/27/12: A MONTH AGO WE RECEIVED THE SAD NEWS THAT BRUNO WAS LOSING HIS FOREVER HOME....AGAIN.

THERE WAS A SENIOR GENTLEMAN WHO STEPPED UP TO ADOPT BRUNO. HE LOVES BRUNO BUT HE IS TOO FRAIL TO WALK HIM AND HE REALLY NEEDS A SMALLER DOG WHO CAN TAKE WALKS WITH HIM. IT JUST WASN'T A MATCH AND BRUNO CAN'T STAY THERE ANYMORE. PLEASE KEEP POSTING FOR BRUNO, WE NEED TO MOVE HIM RIGHT AWAY. HE IS A WONDERFUL DOG , JUST TOO MUCH DOG FOR AN 81 YO MAN.

12-12-11: FOUR DAYS ONLY AND COUNTING! MUST BE OUT BY THIS WEEKEND!

Poor Bruno has had such a hard life. He was rescued from death row in Miami Dade Animal Services 6 years ago and adopted to a family who checked out perfectly in every way imaginable. We were so excited he’d found his forever home. Instead they starved and neglected Bruno so horribly that he was skin & bones, bleeding from head to foot (he had to be shaved naked to treat his skin wounds) with ear infections so severe his ear canals had to be surgically removed or he’d die from the infection reaching his brain. Bruno thankfully lived, recovered beautifully, but because of their abuse is deaf as a result.

Bruno stayed with his original rescuer for two years more living in her tiny bathroom or/outside because that is all she could provide. He finally found what we again thought was his forever home three years ago with a semi-retired couple who adored him. We were absolutely shocked when they called a month ago to tell us they made the decision to sell their house and were moving in 2-4 months and couldn't take Bruno with them.

Last night they informed us Bruno must be out this weekend! We are sick for poor Bruno and have nowhere for him to go. He is nine years old and as sweet & loveable as ever. He follows his human everywhere – not realizing his loyalty is sadly NOT returned. Bruno gets along with female dogs, but probably not good to live with males. Even though he lost his hearing , he still is a great watchdog: he feels movement and hears some sound via bones in his ears. (Just try opening the refrigerator if he’s awake!) We just can't wrap our heads around the fact that this couple who committed to this beautiful boy and sent nothing but wonderful updates for the past three years, can just put him out to pasture. Where do they think he will go? Their parting words to us about Bruno: " thanks for letting us be part of Bruno's life. Wish things were different and we could keep him".

It doesn't have to be this way. Please don't let Bruno's life end at 9 years old ,after so few years of happiness, in a kill shelter. He needs to go to a stable, responsible , committed home where he will spend his golden years with a loving REAL forever family. Call and or email LeeAnn 305 479 9274 OR lmorrison@theflyer.com
