Miniature Pinscher & Chihuahua Mix
Male · 1 year · Small
If you are a dog lover, have great dog experience and want a project that will give you a loving companion then Bruce is your dog. Once Bruce has your trust and love, he is friendly, happy, playful, goofy, affectionate and curious. Bruce loves his walks. He picks up leaves and struts around with them. Tennis balls and stuffed animals are pure joy. When he curls up with you in bed, be prepared to share the covers. He sleeps under. Bruce LOVES being around his person- he's a snuggler and follows his person from room to room. Once you win Bruce's trust - he's a total momma's or Daddy's boy!
The project- Bruce does not like new people- He is SO scared of new people he yelps and lunges. Bruce needs slow intros to dogs and cats. He currently lives peacefully with 4 other dogs and 2 cats. Another confident dog will continue to help Bruce learn that people are ok and will help him learn how to interact with new people. Bruce's new mom or dad will need to be patient and dedicated in getting to know him and protect him from new situations that would put him or others in danger.
Bruce needs an adult or two that will spend time working through his issues, gain his trust and give this guy a chance at a safe and loving life.
