Bruno from Shrewsbury (Shropshire)

Bruno came to me age 18 after his owner passed away. I’d recently lost my Border Terrier at 15 and Bruno helped me mend my broken heart. You could say we needed each other. He really is such a little old man and makes me laugh so much. If he doesn’t get what he wants he walks off muttering to himself, his favourite pastimes are sleeping and eating. He likes a little walk each day, as long as it’s not raining, he hates getting his feet wet! He’s a creature of habit and takes himself off to bed at 8.45 every evening. He’s a super little chap and I really love him, he can be a bit grumpy sometimes and he leaks a bit but we can forgive that at nearly 20 years old. He has to wear a belly band in the house to save any embarrassing accidents. I’m so pleased we found each other and I would definitely have another oldie, they have so much still to give and they ask for so little in return. I wish more people would consider them, you go into it knowing you’re going to get your heart broken sooner rather than later but the satisfaction you get from giving them a second chance really helps
