  Bruce, 2 years Male Mini Australian Shepherd
Bruce Bruce

Meet Bruce, 24 months, neutered mini Aussie, weighs 19 lbs. and is ADORABLE! Bruce is a very handsome young mini Aussie. He is a red tri color. Bruce was adopted from Save A Dog in March and is being returned as his herding instincts were not a match for city life. Herders need a job and Bruce's job became Protector of the Family. Bruce needs a dog experienced adopter who understands herding instincts. He would do best in a home where he gets lots of fresh air and exercise. Leash training is a must for this little Napoleon. He has a lot to offer to the right adopter. He's house trained, playful, generally quiet, and is very affectionate. Little Bruce is very happy outdoors and really needs a yard to be busy in. He is a herding dog and is not going to do well just sitting indoors. He needs to check the yard for unauthorized critters, and if he is lucky, chase them away. He has not even looked twice at the foster cats. He does prefers female dogs. He was fostered with Bella and they played for hours. A young female dog might be just the recipe for keeping him busy. He is very loving and sweet, and very happy to cuddle up with you. He did well during his behavioral evaluation and it was noted he has a high drive to work and play. He LOVES tennis balls, which will come in handy for keeping him focused. He self-entertains well, knows his basic obedience commands (sit, down, etc.) and is a very fun little dog. He has started to play with the other dogs at the shelter and he's shown that when properly socialized, he can play well with dogs.
