Bruno came all the way from Florida to Virginia to find his new family. His former owner was not able to take longer care of him. When you see him you wouldn’t believe he is a senior dog. Bruno is full of energy and says never ‘no’ to a walk. He goes up and down stairs on his own.
A family who has experience with small dog behavior would be great but is not a requirement. No small kids! He loves nothing more than be close to you and follows you around. Being next to you while you watch TV or browse the internet. He prefers to sleep in your bed. Because Bruno is a small dog he needs more frequent bathroom breaks. About every 3-4 hours, a fenced yard, deck or doggy door will do. When he gets a walk late in the evening he is fine for the whole night. Bruno is not destructive when left home alone. He barks sometimes and is not hyper. Being a Maltese and Yorkshire Terrier blend his fur requires frequent brushing. It gets matted otherwise.
Bruno likes some dogs and some he doesn’t. Being the only dog in the home might be best for him.
