Bruno is a big ol’ affectionate boy! This two to three-year-old Bully Breed blend was surrendered to the Blount County Animal Center shelter in Tennessee on July 5th because his owner moved and couldn’t take him along. Shortly after his arrival, he suffered from relentless vomiting. Tests indicated no serious issues, and he recovered, so it was thought that he was simply stressed from the shelter environment. Unfortunately, he did test heartworm positive.

On August 2nd, Kristin Baksa, the shelter’s rescue coordinator, sought RADAR’s help for Bruno. With heartworm treatment he would have a much better chance of finding his forever home. We agreed to assist, and he had his treatment done August 21st.

“He’s happy and playful,” Kristin told us. “He seems well-mannered. He will sit on command, and seems like a luv bug who wants to snuggle and hang out. We look forward to finding him a family that appreciates his big, slobbery kisses! Click here to view more photos of Bruno.

RADAR paid all of Bruno’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $380.
