I’m Bruce! And I  “Ain’t Nothing but a Houndog” I may not be the King of Rock N’ Roll but I’m the King of Cuteness! With my heart stopping good looks and playful personality I may just be that something special missing from your life. I am an 8 week old basset hound mix and weigh 9 pounds.  I was born in the home of my foster family and raised with my 9 siblings so I have had LOTS of socializing and opportunities to learn how to be a great dog. I love to play and be goofy & silly. Whether it be with another dog or a human companion – find the BIGGEST stick in the yard and it’s on!  My littermates may call me the class clown because I love to get them started in a wrestling match.  Life is too short to not have fun! I am about 65% trained to use my potty pad and working hard on my basic training! Please fill out an application to adopt me, because once you do, I promise that you “can’t help falling in love with me” ♥

KNOWN HISTORY – Mama Maggie AND her 10 newborn babies were scheduled to die in a Houston shelter. Maggie was heartworm positive, and as such – no other rescue would take on the expense and time commitment to treat her. (HW does not transmit to babies)  P.R.A.R. stepped in and took Maggie and her kiddos, knowing the treatment for Maggie would be long and expensive, but it also saved eleven beautiful lives. When you adopt from PRAR – You make room in our program for us to save more families like this one. ♥ 

Won’t you please consider adding this precious, sweet, loving little boy to your family? If you are not quite ready to add a new member to your family, won’t you please #SHARE our adoptable kiddos on social media? You never know when your share is the share that will bring them home.

Bruce’s adoption fee is $450 and includes neuter, microchip with free lifetime registration, age appropriate vaccinations, dewormers, and heartworm prevention started. He will come home with a hobo bag of things to help him get started in his new furever home. You can apply to welcome him into your family by completing an adoption application below.

Please understand that adopting from P.R.A.R. means FOREVER. Please do NOT apply if you do not have the time to properly train and exercise a dog (now and in the future) or if you do not meet the minimum adoption requirements for the dog in which you are applying.
