About Bruno

Pit Bull / Bulldog
Age: Adult
Sex: Male

[Read About Natural Incontinence Care] Bruno is a wonderful buddy we rescued approximately 3 years ago from ACCT. He was on the euthanize list and had only 48 hours left to live, so we rescued him and gave him a chance to flourish. When we got him, he was extremely malnourished, had a few infections, and was not neutered. In 3 short months we had fixed all of his problems, but 2 weeks into having him home we noticed he had an issue with moving his left back leg. We rushed him to the vet and they told us he had a spinal stroke and that he would likely recover almost all his function within 3 days. We did physical therapy with him daily and he did get most of his mobility back, though that leg does have some weakness still. However, he does have some lingering urinary incontinence. We tried every medication you could think to help and behavioral modifications and he did improve, but he is not 100%. He also has allergies, which are generally well controlled, but are worse in late spring. I have a system that doesn't involve prescription medications, but does require persistence and patience. We truly love this dog, but recent medical issues has made it difficult to give him all the time and care he requires. We are looking for either a foster, rescue, or a family to take him. He is absolutely wonderful with children and other dogs. He is a complete love-bug and just wants to be scratched or played with. He has low endurance and energy and mostly just lounges about. When you scratch him he gives this adorable 'love moan' and when he looks at you he is looking at you with love in his eyes. This was not an easy decision to make, but it's what's best for Bruno.
