Oh my gosh how awesome are dogs?!?! I had one growing up that I loved to death, even though she didn’t care too much about anyone else *eye roll*. But after she passed I wasn’t too keen on getting another dog – the internet had convinced me cats were where it’s at – and then my cat also didn’t care too much about anyone else *intense eye roll*.
Unfortunately, because of Charlee’s allergy we couldn’t keep the cat, and even though I was heartbroken, I was excited to get a dog. This time I decided to forget about all my ideas of what kind of dog I wanted, and just get the sweetest friendliest dog I could find. After a few months – we found Bruce at our local shelter, and brought him home.
This cutie is about 1 1/2 – 2 years old, already 65 lbs., AND he’s Chocolate Lab/Pitbull mix. We fiddled around with names for quite a while, and even though he mostly gets called “buddy” or “puppy”, Bruce is the perfect name! We realized how perfect it fit after watching Finding Nemo again – and realizing Bruce the shark is totally him! He looks big and scary, but has his heart in the right place.
He loves to play and wrestle, he almost never barks, loves to snuggle, and is great around kids. He’s the best dog we could have asked for, and we’re looking forward to getting to grow with him!
Check back for more updates, he’s still changing and getting comfortable with us 🙂
