Bruno was rescued off the streets on a 110 degree day in Bakersfield. He was hot, tired and infested with ticks. After only a few days in his foster home, he was learning to go potty outside, sleep in his crate without crying, and obey basic commands. He is a people pleaser and loves to be around other people and animals. Our best guess is that he’s a German Shepard/ Husky mix about 12 weeks old. He is great with kids and other pets and is currently working on walking well on a leash.

If you’d like to add Bruno to your family, please fill out his adoption application below.
