Say hello to Bruce, the gentlest boy with the cutest freckles! Bruce is the definition of a happy-go-lucky boy, who will be your sidekick from doing everyday chores to outdoor adventures. Perhaps having a bit of a golden retriever in him, Bruce has a strong desire to please, especially if you happen to be lucky enough to be his favorite person. Even if you come in second, no worries, he still loves you to pieces! Basic cues come easily for him, though treats and toys are always a welcomed bonus. This big boy plays well with dogs of all sizes and ages; it is almost as if Bruce can magically "read" what his playmates are thinking, and he matches their energy level and play style pyrfectly. As much as Bruce is content with bird and squirrel watching in the backyard, he is always excited for a walk in the neighborhood or a leisurely stroll in the woods - after all, it is important to keep the humans healthy :) Bruce has the biggest heart and sees the good in everyone (two-legged and four-legged) he meets. This lovely boy will thrive in a loving home where he will be adored and cherished, in return, he will love you to the moon and back and then more!

NYS Registered Rescue # RR102
Our goal is to assess every application on its own merits. Key considerations are: 1) the experience of the applicant with large breed dogs 2) children in the household or regularly visiting the household are ready for a large-breed dog who is a guardian by nature and 3) the sex of other dogs currently residing in the household to avoid same-sex aggression issues. For puppies under six months old, the applicant’s ability to socialize the puppy with older dogs is a priority.
