All in the Family


Border Collie / Boxer

I always wanted a dog so for my birthday I went to shelter to look for a dog. Being a new owner I wanted something small and cuddly, thank god I didn't. I was heartbroken ofcourse to see so many dogs and wanted to take all of them home. Then after looking at all the small dogs which were barking nineteen to a dozen I looked at the big ones. My husband spotted Bruno. Bruno was the nicest calmest dog there, wagging his tail and beckoning me with his smile. He went on his belly for me to give him a rub. I was aprehensive at first but he did all of his tricks to convince me he was for me. He was black with beautiful white markings. I went and asked about Bruno and was told it was his last weekend before he would be destroyed. It turned out Bruno was half border collie and half boxer only nine months and from a good home who had too many dogs. The owners had thought he would be adopted quickly but somehow no one looked at him. When we first got him he was supposed to be an out door dog, after just three days his bed came in the kitchen then from the kitchen he was brought upstairs into our room in two more days and then after a couple of weeks he was sleeping on our bed with us hahaha. He had made his place gently without us even knowing.

Bruno is very handsome and I can see why you fell in love with him. I'm happy that you found each other and just in time it seems.

he is adorable. 9 months and he is just one cool, calm collected man. It is so hard to go to the shelter but you can find your doggy soul mate. You guys are going to have a great life. P.S. Be careful because he is totally going to start stealing your pillows and getting under the covers...happens everytime.

Your story about Bruno almost brought me to tears. What a beautiful boy he is, and thank you for rescuing him and giving him a chance. If only more people would adopts sweeties like him, instead of missing out on such joy. Give him cuddles for me.
