This super handsome guy is Bruno, a Husky/Malamute mix. Bruno has a very playful personality and is fond of playing catch with his squeaky toys! He loves to take baths and drink water from the sprinkler. He's generally very quiet and barks minimally. One of his favorite activities is to go on long walks and discover new places. He is very smart and knows the basic commands sit, stay, place, down, crate, and speak. He knows to walk beside his person and rides well in the car. He will wait to be released from his command (told "okay") to eat his meals or exit his crate.
Bruno is a nervous dog and his human must be patient, firm, and advocate for him. It takes Bruno a little while to warm up to new people but once he does, he is a very loving pup. Bruno has a slight preference for men but will respect a firm handler regardless of gender. He does well with dogs but they must be introduced correctly or he can be reactive to dogs he is not familiar with. He is not an alpha dog and does not react or bother dogs that he is familiar with, but the other dog(s) must be respectful as well.
We would like for him to go to an owner that has experience TRAINING large breed dogs. The owner MUST be firm and understand that not all dogs want to be approached by strange dogs or people. We would also like to find him a home outside of the city with a fenced-in yard, where he can run and play. Bruno would make a great hiking/jogging buddy!
We would like to have Bruno adopted around the Baltimore area. He will come up to date on his shots, microchipped, and neutered. If you are interested in adopting him, please fill out an online application form.
