Alrighty, here’s Bruce almighty! This one-year-old Labrador Retriever-Border Collie mix and his sibling brother, Bear, were surrendered to the Rowan County Animal Shelter in Kentucky on November 16th. While the rest of their family was moving, they weren’t going along; instead, they lost both their family and their home. Their fate hung in the balance at the shelter.
Fortunately for Bruce and Bear, our wonderful partners at STAR (Saving The Animals of Rowan) found a foster home for these two boys. At first, they were understandably quite frightened and confused. They were hesitant around people and would growl at other dogs. But within a week, they were playing with the foster’s other dogs! In fact, we have a photo of Bruce sharing his kennel space comfortably with another dog. Click here to see more photos of Bruce. While both dogs are now quite playful, Bruce is a bit more shy than his brother, and tends to follow Bear’s lead.
RADAR agreed to cover the costs for the initial vetting and neutering of Bruce and Bear, which was done the last week in November as part of STAR’s partnership with the Morehead State University Veterinary Technician Program. Both dogs tested negative for heartworm.
RADAR has paid Bruce’s initial vetting and neutering costs of $74.
