CALLING ALL FAMILIES WHO HAVE A HEART❤️FOR THE SENIOR DOG.
This is BRUNO, a gorgeous 8-year old long haired GSD who joined us about a year ago. He was sick and underweight when he arrived, suffering from a bout of kennel cough. Thankfully we were able to get him into one of our loving foster homes where he stayed for most of 2022. Unfortunately, his foster mom had an unforeseen medical challenge and could no longer foster BRUNO, so we welcomed him back to the Ranch earlier this month.
What we learned of BRUNO while he was at his foster home is that he is one of those rare GSD’s who is ok with cats. He also is a Velcro dog finding a comfortable spot to curl up near the feet of his foster mom while she would work during the day. BRUNO does well with most dogs if introduced properly. This applies to people too. BRUNO doesn’t care so much for people rushing up to him, but a gradual introduction works great for him.
If you hear BRUNO bark you’ll notice a distinct sound. Unfortunately we suspect his former owners may have devoiced BRUNO. Maybe they didn’t want to hear him bark? We don’t know, but we love the noise BRUNO makes.
At 8 years old BRUNO now moves slower. He still likes to go on walks but he’s just as happy to hang out wherever you are. BRUNO would do great in a home without a lot of foot traffic and a home without children. He’s looking for a home that would appreciate the special qualities that a senior dog can offer.
This dog is new to the rescue. More information will be posted as it becomes available.

This amount only partially covers the cost of veterinary care, boarding fees, and other miscellaneous expenses involved in the temporary care and adoption of our dogs and is tax deductible. Prior to placement, all dogs will be spayed or neutered, receive current vaccinations, and are usually microchipped. If not, arrangements will be made on an individual basis. Special consideration may be given to those willing to adopt older dogs or dogs with physical problems.
