Saturday's Dog: Bruno

Photo property of North East All Retriever Rescue.

Part of me thinks all I should have to do is post this photo and people will be scrambling over each other in their bid to adopt beautiful Bruno. Part of me knows that's not how it works. So allow me instead, to introduce you to this affectionate, mellow senior softie, Bruno, the black Lab.

Bruno is 9-years old and looking for his new forever family. He's currently living in foster care through North East All Retriever Rescue and you can read his whole profile on their website.

He used to live with a family that had five children so he's really good with them. He's also very good with other dogs but cats, not so much. He's a bit of a couch potato and maybe a little bit velcro (I think that's part of the breed standard for Labs. ;) And come on, he's gorgeous, isn't he?

So, if you find yourself in need of a couch companion, hop on over to NEARR's website and tell them you just can't live without this big, beautiful boy. Or if there's no room at your inn these days, just click one of those social media buttons down at the bottom of the page and help Bruno out by getting his info in front of more people. The more people who see him, the sooner he finds his once and future forever home.

Thanks! And have a wonderful weekend.


  1. What a beautiful guy!  I hope he finds a forever home real soon!  


  3. Thanks for sharing Bruno. I work doggy adoptions every weekend and some of the most fantastic dogs, like him, are overlooked - because they're black? I just adopted my own 9 year old lab-mix who is also a velcro dog. Whenever I'm sitting at my computer, like right now, Cole is parked underneath my computer desk and touching my feet. He's a love.... but many, many people overlooked him.

    I am dropping by on the blog hop today to share an inspiring story about a parrot rescue lady in Canada. Watch the video and I know you'll be inspired.

    Have a great rest of the weekend with your fur-kid.

    Beautiful boy!

  5. I got my paws crossed for ya Bruno!

  6. What a handsome guy. And he looks much younger than 9 years old.

    BTW, it might be good to include the distance potential adopters can live. I know some rescues have limits so they can do home visits. 

  7. What a handsome, handsome dog! Love those eyes! I bet he'll be snatched up in no time. Good luck to you, Bruno!

  8. Bruno is gorgeous! He sure does look like a softie!
