Bruno is our sweet rescue Pit Bull, who just turned 2. He has degenerative joint disease in both of his hips and luxating patellas in both knees. While he will most likely need a total hip replacement in one or both hips down the road, his hips are not bothering him right now and can do without surgery for a while. His knees, however, slide and click out of place every time he walks, runs, jumps, etc. causing him to limp. We are trying to get one knee corrected at the moment. An account has been set up at Power Road Animal Hospital if you prefer to help directly through the vet. Kristy can answer any questions - 480.641.4141. Please read further to get to know a little more about Bruno.

We adopted our little nugget at just 6 weeks old, the second pup to go in his litter of 11! Bruno has been a part of our family for the last 2 years and has stolen our hearts. He has an older Pittie sister, and last May, became a big brother (and protector) to his human sister Kate Marie.

Everyone who meets Bruno falls in love with him immediately. He thinks he is a lap dog, as most Pit Bulls do. We have never known a dog as cuddly and snuggly as Bruno. It is quite typical to find Bruno perched atop your feet or nuzzled into the side of his Pit sister Misty. He even tries to snuggle next to Kate.

It’s hard to pick out just a few reasons why we love Bruno. Besides his unconditional love, he loves to play. Playing catch in the backyard is one of his favorite things to do in the early morning. He also loves to play growl and talk with our other dog, Misty. Misty is 10 years old and doesn’t always want to play like a 2 year old, but Bruno is relentless. He will pounce at her, toss blankets and pillows (from their beds) at her, anything to engage her in play. When he isn’t harassing Misty, he’s usually taking a swim in the pool. He swims year round, and even though we are in Arizona, it still gets cold here in the winter, but that doesn’t stop him. He loves water, and on more than a few occasions , he has snuck into the shower…while we have been showering! We have never met a dog that craves water – he even loves when we spray him with water from a spray bottle or hose.

One of the funniest things Bruno does is his hyper speed lap running. We aren’t sure where it comes from, but sure enough, at least a few times a week, we aren’t surprised when he comes barreling through the doggie door and then proceeds to run at lightening speed from the kitchen to the family room, down the hall and back again…about 5 or 6 times. A close second to Bruno’s funny moments would have to be his laying down to eat each meal, and then burping when he’s done. He used to burp all of the time, but now it’s only every once in a while and it still gives us a laugh :)

Bruno is our baby, our love, and a part of our family. He is such an active and fun canine. It’s true when they say that he rescued us. We owe it to him to give him the best quality of life.
