This handsome boy is Bruce, and he is a 6-year-old Jack Russel.

He has been in Assisi’s care for over 1300 days, and unfortunately has little interest.

Bruce can be wary of the big wide world and finds it overwhelming at times.

He much prefers quiet walks with his trusted companions and values quality time with them – once Bruce has built a bond with you, you will have a friend for life!
His best friend at the Sanctuary is Tana the Shih Tzu, and they love going for quiet afternoon strolls together where they can take in the scenery and all the interesting smells.

Bruce is comfortable wearing his muzzle when out on walks and can easily take treats through the gaps when working on learning new skills with the staff.
In his downtime, he loves playing with toys and has become quite the collector! – he will often inspect our donation bin for more to add to his collection.
He also enjoys daily naps in his comfortable bed and, like many of us, prefers to be undisturbed while sleeping.

It would be beneficial to provide Bruce with a quiet area in his new home to place his bed.

He is incredibly clever and loves learning new tricks! – he knows sit, paw, down, and hand touch – he has also trained people to let them know he would like attention by gently tapping you with his paw.
Do you have room in your heart and your home for a shy guy like Bruce? If so, please get in touch with us if you would like more information or to book an appointment with the rehoming team.
