This little guy came to SAGE as an owner surrender.
And if we say little, we do mean little, Bruno is a Portuguese Podengo Pequeno and weighs only about 12 pounds at the moment.
He still has a little bit of growing to do, but he will stay small.
Bruno is a happy little guy and still very much a puppy at almost 8 months old.
He loves meeting people, grown ups and kids, dogs and exploring the world.
Bruno will need an active family who enjoys taking their dog along on their adventures and have at least 1 other dog to keep him company and from being bored.
Did I say he was a puppy?
We suggest puppy classes, basic behavior and any other class that he will enjoy, long walks and games to play.
Just like the podencos, podengos are smart dogs that love to learn and bond for life.
Bruno is being fostered with several large dogs and a few cats.
Update from his fosterfamily:
"Bruno will need an adopter who enjoys long hikes, jogging, perhaps doing agility or some other mentally and physically stimulating activity with him, and has a large busy fun family (large can mean other pets, kids, whatever it is this guy wants to be in the middle of the action!) He’s super smart, quickly incorporating corrections issued by our older dogs and cats and very ready to learn anything humans want to teach him."
