Bruno is one of 116 Dobermans confiscated in a horrific court case in SC, and he is so lucky to be one of the 7 Dobes who were rescued with IDR+. He is only 6 years old, but he looks much older. Our vet evaluated him, and he has arthritis in his spine and hips. After a course of anti-inflammatory/pain meds and PT (laser, acupuncture, and water treadmill), he is getting along better. He can go up and down a handful of stairs, and he likes to trot around the yard. Bruno would appreciate a home with few stairs to access the yard for potty and floors with carpet or rugs for good traction. He never had to be housebroken before, so this old dog is learning a new trick. He seems to have some occasional dribbling, so a forever home would need to be understanding. Bruno is missing a toe, which means one less toenail to cut! His nipples and elbows have evidence of a lifetime of lying on concrete. He weighs 80 pounds, and he would like to lean all of that weight into you for a loving touch. He loves treats and takes them nicely. Bruno is all about a cuddle or a nuzzle after leaving his horrible past behind him. This sweet older man does great with the resident Rottweiler in his foster home, but he would try to chase the Chihuahua and kitty if he had better coordination. He has no history with kids.
