    Bruno, Collie x Lurcher, DOB 07 – Gatwick, Surrey

    [​IMG]

    Homing Requirements: Bruno will settle in with a doggie experienced family ideally who understand Lurchers and Collies. He is a little possessive of food so for this reason not to live with children and supervised around visiting children. He has had a persistent cough for 3 weeks in kennels but is improving now. We have not assessed him for cats, off lead or in a domestic setting.

    Her Story: Bruno was abandoned by his owners in kennels ... they just didn't come back for him following their 'holiday'. He has moved into our care but is still kennelled as alas no foster has come up yet for him. Since been neutered, chipped and vax'd.

    Advert: Bruno is a lively character always with a smile to greet you. He is quite food orientated and coupled with his intelligence easy to train. Bruno loves his walks & walks well on the lead and in the company of other dogs. Bruno travels well in a car though initially 'Collie focused' on the windscreen wipers ... though settled. Overcoming a cough thankfully … the other side of a cold, cold winter thank God.

    Bruno is a lovely Collie x Lurcher with the best of both! He is mouthy but not sharply but there were a few occasions where he didn't want kennel staff to take his food away. He obviously had little else to look forward too. He enjoys toys and we think he may have been an only dog. Bruno needs gentle exposure to life again and to adjust to traffic and noises etc. He will come on leaps and bounds in the right hands and will be doted on ... like he is with us!

    Please visit Bruno’s link Rescue Remedies.myfastforum.org :: Bruno Lurcher x Collie DOB 07 Gatwick (S) Kenns on our forum to find out more about him and follow his progress.

    "Please note this dog is currently in boarding kennels and is also available for foster until a 'forever' home is found".

    An update from Zoe, one of our volunteer kennel walkers:

    “Well, I think that Bruno has two new fans! One of my dogwalking friends came up with me yesterday and we walked Bruno with Rickie [another RR rescue dog]. It is so sad that he is still in kennels - there is absolutely nothing wrong with this boy that I can see - loves his walks and such a happy, cuddly boy ...

    Bruno is currently in boarding kennels and available for foster until his forever home comes along. Could you offer him a foster place and some TLC? If so, please get in touch.

    You'd never guess that Bruno is one of Margaret's favourites! (Margaret is one of our volunteer walkers).

    Lovely walk with a very calm Bruno, walks nicely on lead ahead but doesnt pull.

    I was down to walk Bruno as I specifically wanted to get to know him better and I thought he would be my kind of boy! As it turned out Jilly Allen, a friend of mine walked him and both of us were bowled over by him! Bruno gets my "Best in Show Male" award and I reckon he has Jilly's too! We are now both big fans!
