Bruiser‘s Story

❤️Bruiser is Available❤️

Please READ the bio and adoption requirements first to make sure you are a perfect fit BEFORE APPLYING.

Hello, I’m Bruiser! I’m a 20-month-old male Labradoodle weighing in at 60lbs. I do shed when my coat is longer, but with proper and frequent grooming it is much less noticeable.
My foster family says I’m a big goofball! I'm a sociable guy who loves all people and dogs! I’m energetic, so romping around the yard and a daily walk is something that I’ll need. I play all day long with my toys, foster fur siblings, and foster family. Outdoor activities like walks, runs, and play time are my favorite. I’m really great at fetch, so throw me a ball and it’s game on! I’ve been around young kiddos and do great.
I like to start my day around 6 AM with my morning potty break. My daily routine is play, play, play - so I hope you can keep up! I enjoy spending time being active, so if you like to run or hike that would be my dream come true! While outside, I like to look for the neighbor’s dogs and have conversations while running along the fence. Having a fur sibling has taught me a lot and I like having someone to play with. 

My leash skills are a work in progress. I do best on runs, but on walks I can pull a bit. I do counter-surf, so my forever family needs to set boundaries with me. I go into my crate with a treat and I’m kept next to my fur siblings. I still have puppy tendencies, like playing with my mouth and jumping. I know some basic commands like “sit” and “off,” but I need to be taught more. I’m potty trained, but sometimes when outside I think digging holes and eating dirt is a good idea. 

- Active dog sibling, he/she must be playful and 50+ pounds 
 - Large fenced yard 
- Active family for daily walks and exercise
- NO shared walls - I'm very vocal
