About Bruno

Staffordshire Bull Terrier (SBT)
0 to 6 Months


Bruno is a very spunky little pup but he has cataracts in both eyes, at the tender age of 7 weeks. This doesn't stop him exporing his surroundings, although he does tend to use those puppy teeth to do so! Unfortunately that means he needs a home with older children, 14 and up. Bruno is as full of beans as you would expect a dog of his age to be, and very playful.

Type of home needed

Bruno is a typical pup in most respects - he will need housetraining, socialising etc, but he is going to be a bigger challenge that most. He appears to be fully blind, but at 12 weeks old he will be referred to a specialist to give us a better idea of what's going on. Bruno will need lots of clear training, from an experienced family, and full support will be given throughout the adoption process and beyond. All veterinary bills relating to his eyes will be met by Dogs Trust.

More about me

We had another pup earlier in the year with a similar condition, and she is now flourishing in her new home, leading a wonderful life!

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Bruno, who is based at Merseyside. 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 £130 (£110 in Ballymena due to extra dog licence fees), 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 will 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.
