Although Bruno is a big boy, he is very easy to be around. He knows sit, down, and shake.
He takes treats gently from your hand and seems house trained. He does pull on his leash so it is recommended that, for awhile, you use a harness called "gentle leader" when you take him for a walk.
His previous owner said he is good with other dogs but will chase cats. A household without cats would be best for Bruno.
Bruno is neutered. His ID is #A664453 and he is in Kennel 514. The Austin Animal Center is located at 7201 Levander Loop at the intersection of Highway 183 and Airport Blvd.
The Austin Animal Center wants to make sure you spare your pet the spooks this Halloween.
1. Dogs can be easily excited by Halloween commotion and a bite or lost dog will quickly end the evening's fun. So, when going out trick-or-treating, leave your dog at home.
2. Cats are always safest inside with you. On Halloween, it is especially important to keep your cats and all other pets in the house.
3. Remember that masks and costumes change how people look and smell to a pet, so even familiar people may be frightening. Separate your pets from Halloween activities and trick-or-treaters, even in your house.
4. Make sure that all of your pets are wearing tags with current IDs. Consider micro-chipping them for free down at the Austin Animal Center. Opening the door repeatedly for trick-or-treaters creates plenty of escape opportunities.
5. Keep candy out of reach of pets.
