Bruno is no brute! In fact, he is described as a very sweet fellow. This three-year-old Bully Breed mix was surrendered to the Surry County Animal Control shelter in North Carolina on July 31st. We were told that Bruno's owner had gotten him from someone who promised to get the new owner an outdoor kennel pen, but failed to follow through on the promise. So Bruno was kept locked up in the basement, got bored, did some 'redecorating' and was sent off to the shelter. Unfortunately, the shelter was full and Bruno tested heartworm positive.
