About Bruno

Mastiff: Bull
2 to 5 Years


Although he is such a big handsome chap, Bruno is a bit of a sensitive guy who likes his routine and the familiar. He loves his food (a bit too much) and is not keen to share. Bruno is such a loving boy that he likes company throughout the day.

Type of home needed

He can be very timid of formal handling especially vet visits and needs a patient approach to this. He walks fairly well on the lead for such a big dog and has a really gentle manner. He is not dog social, and will suit a home used to dogs like him. Bruno is looking for an adult home with people around for him and he will need to be the only dog in his new home. He also will need a secure garden free of dogs on either side.

More about me

Please contact the centre if you are interested in this handsome chap, before visiting. You can speak to the people who know him best. Bruno will need to meet with new owners to get to know them before going home.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Bruno, who is based at Darlington. Please note this is not a reservation on this dog. To start the rehoming process you will need to go to a rehoming centre for a quick chat. Please find information below about what to expect during the rehoming process. We hope to see you soon.

  1. The average time between visiting a Rehoming Centre and taking your new pet home is just eight days. Every circumstance is different but this brief guide lets you know what you will experience when you decide to rehome a dog from us.
  2. The rehoming centre is your gateway to finding your new pet pooch. When you arrive at the centre you will be greeted in reception by a friendly face.
  3. During this first visit we will take a few details from you so we know what you are looking for. You will be able to visit the dogs and we'll advise you on how to find the right dog for your circumstance and that your circumstances will work for the dog too.
  4. We would like you to get to know your chosen dog before you take him home so, if you have any other dogs or family members, you may need to bring them along for a further visit to ensure the whole family is happy with the decision.
  5. The fee for rehoming a dog is £150 (£140 in Ballymena due to extra dog licence fees),for puppies its £150 adoption fee plus a £45 Dog School fee but every dog is vet checked, microchipped, and neutered as well as a very cool Dogs Trust lead and collar - so we think it's a good deal!
  6. On rehoming your new dog from Dogs Trust you can receive 4 weeks' free insurance from our partner Petplan, this covers your dog for any unexpected illnesses and injuries, for further details and to activate your 4 weeks' free trial visit the Petplan website.
  7. So now you are ready to take your new pal home, just one more step which is a pre-adoption talk. This ensures you are aware of the responsibilities of dog ownership and reminds you that we are always here when you need us!
  8. Get in touch with the centre your dog is located at to arrange a visit.
