Barking with The Beat – Bruce Wayne

Thanks to 417 Pet Sitting for helping us find Bruce Wayne a new home! Unlike his namesake, our Bruce Wayne is not a billionaire industrialist, though he is a pretty smart boy with great physical strength! Bruce has LOTS of energy, and he doesn’t seem to realize his own strength (so he may do best in a home without small children). He needs some training on proper behavior around humans, and he can be a little picky about his doggie friends, though he has done well with other dogs in his play groups here. Completely unlike the other Bruce, our boy LOVES playing with his stuffed toy, and is not destructive with it at all! The people who brought him to us reported that he is housebroken, though we cannot guarantee that.
