BRUNO - A40252275
Intake Type: Stray 11/27, return adoption 12/20
Weight: 65 lbs.

Behavior Observation: (12/31 Per Volunteer Evaluation) Bruno was wiggly and wagging his tail in the kennel and allowed easy leashing, even in a surgery kennel. He was great on a walk - loose body, wagging tail, minimal pulling, no reactivity to strangers or other dogs. He became slightly overaroused when playing in the yard. He jumped on me and mouthed at my shirt a few times, but was easily redirected and calmed down almost immediately once we left the yard.
