Bruno

Bruno (Courtesy Orange County Humane Society / November 13, 2012)

Bruno is a handsome 4-year-old German shepherd mix who arrived at the shelter very recently. Although found as a stray, he is healthy, looks to have been well cared for and enjoys having his beautiful coat stroked.

His situation is one of those many instances about which one wonders, "How could someone have lost or abandoned such a wonderful dog?" Bruno has plenty of energy and enthusiasm for walks, but is easy to handle on a leash. He appears house-trained and, while he would benefit from additional obedience training, seems generally well behaved.

Come meet Bruno, whose adoption fees are discounted 25% all week, when you mention this announcement at the Orange County Humane Society, 21632 Newland St., Huntington Beach. For more information, call (714) 536-8480 or visit www.ochumanesociety.com.

With colder temperatures upon us, donations of washable towels and fleece blankets are especially welcome to keep all the shelter pets warm at night.
