Here we have Bruce.
This lad has spent the whole of his life as an outside yard dog with very little human or dog interaction at all – very sad.
He is now neutered, chipped and fully vaccinated.
His owner says he is fine with other dogs but admits Bruce has had little walking outside of the yard so he will need time to get used to other dogs again in my opinion, unknown with children and a no to cats.
Bruce spends most of his time day and night out in the yard as a guard dog, he is allowed in the garage in the winter.
Bruce is now in foster but still sleeps at night in a kennel as he is no good with cats.
We have found that when on the lead and out in public he can be a little protective while on the lead and will lunge towards certain people, always men. Although he has not bitten anyone while with us I cannot say for sure he wouldn’t. Sadly his early training was very poor in all respects.
Bruce knows no house rules to speak of and I do feel if someone came forward with a semi in door / outdoor arrangement that would suit him perfectly as house training could take place at his speed with outdoor space if needed. Although clean at night in his kennel.
He loves to travel in the car but will protect it while in there. This poor lad is adapting well to not being a guard dog but needs someone with time and space.He is very clean in his kennel and quite all night while in there.
Bruce spent his last years in long term foster and now is running free over Rainbow Bridge.
