Ottawa Dog Rescue – Dog of the Month: This handsome boy is Bruce, a 7-8 yr old neutered Doberman mix who came to us from the shelter. He is a timid boy but once he knows you he’s quite the lovable guy. He absolutely ADORES being outside so he needs a home where there is space to explore and lie around in the yard. He is good on leash, and trustworthy when left loose in the house. He is not destructive when alone but much prefers the outdoors.
He doesn’t like when unknown and very excitable dogs come onto his face so can be choosy with who he likes (seems to be more the smaller dogs than the larger ones). With slow and proper introductions he has been able to be in a pack of 8+ dogs. He also seems to like kids quite a bit. He can pace and pant indoors but will eventually settle down.
He was Lyme positive and has been on Doxy for the last 3 weeks.
Overall he is a very low maintenance dog, who prefers to be outside and probably a singly dog or with another low key female of the same size.
