All about Bruce

This sweet boy is looking for his perfect forever home.  Bruce is a happy, affectionate, playful pup who knows his basic commands and has nice house manners. 

If you're looking for an active, loyal companion, Bruce might be the boy for you.  Walks and playdates at the dog park, swimming and chasing toys, cuddling and hanging out, Bruce loves to be with his family and to have a great time.  

A typical young male, Bruce has lots of energy to burn and is looking for a family that has the time to meet his exercise and training needs.  Like many young giant breed dogs, he can be a bit boisterous at times and may jump up on people, so further training and socialization will be key to helping him mature into a calm and polite adult.

He is currently still living with his surrendering family until a foster space opens up (or an adoptive home is found).  We are told he lives with a rabbit that hops around the apartment, so he could join a home with a cat or other small pet. 

He loves going to the dog park and has many four-footed pals.  He especially loves smaller dogs!  Having said that, he is currently sharing his apartment with an intact male and the two of them have issues guarding resources like toys and food.  We would recommend that Bruce lives either as the only dog in his adoptive home, or he joins a home with a well-mannered female dog and an owner that is prepared to set Bruce up for success.  

To be considered for adopting a dog through Newf Friends please submit a completed application, which can be found on the CONTACT US/FORMS page. Before completing an application or emailing us with questions, please review our FAQ page.  As outlined on our FAQ page, applicants who do not meet our adoption requirements (ie. no fenced play area, living in an apartment building, having young children, etc.) will not be considered -- please do not email us asking us to make an exception.
