This is a painful situation for my wife and me. We are an older couple who quickly came to love Bruno as much as we love our other two dogs. Unfortunately we have to give up our well loved canine friend because we are being forced to move to much smaller accomodations. Bruno strayed onto our property seven months ago, underweight but otherwise healthy.So some of the information on the application is based on what we have observed about him during that time. And some information needs further clarification. Please read on. Coloring: Black on brown brindled pattern with well defined 'Tiger Stripes. His chest is white with white on the tips of his paws. Breed: Bruno looks to be a Purebred American Staffordshire Terrier or a purebred American Pitbull Terrier. I am not an expert by any means, but from each breed's websites I have found images of dogs who look exactly like Bruno, all the way down to the small white streak running from his eyes to his nose. Some people have also suggested he might be a Terrier/Boxer mix. Only a DNA test will tell. Age: judging by the condition of his teeth Bruno looks to be young, 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 years old. Good with other dogs?: He gets along well with our 17 year old male and our 4 year old female. He doesn't get along with other males of breeding age. Good with kids and adults?: Adults-yes, and possibly older children. Although we have no experience with Bruno in this particular situation, I believe he would be good with children nine to ten years old and older. He's probably a little too big for smaller children. Leash Trained:Not completely, but I am sixty-eight years old and disabled, yet I have little difficulty controlling Bruno on the leash. Housetrained: In the seven months we have had him he has had two 'accidents,' because we left him inside for too long. Bruno is playful, lovable, and even goofy at times. He loves to rough house and play tug of war with an old tee shirt of mine. He also loves his walks and especially chewing on his little rubber ball. Like most other dogs of his type Bruno is intelligent and, because of that intelligence, sometimes a little bit stubborn. Again, like all other larger dogs he needs you to set boundaries for him. Bruno is a great dog just as he is, but I believe he would benefit from an experienced owner and/or someone who is willing to spend a little time on him with basic obedience training. I think Bruno would be great in a family situation with older kids. I also think he would make a great canine companion for an individual or a family who engages in outdoor activities as well. In closing I would like to say that anyone who becomes Bruno's new human will be a very lucky person indeed. Sincerely, Lance and Lourdes Hotz--NOTE: Contacting us by email is preferred.
