Thanks - no home for Bruno as yet. The shelter is overcrowded now, but i think i have found someone to pay for him to go in to private kennels, its not really ideal as he needs a home now, but it'll give him more time to find someone.
I took him out to a park on Tuesday and whilst he was sniffing a flower a big butterfly landed on it, it initially scared him but then he sat and watched it for a while. Made me realise that living all his life in a shelter, means he has so much that is new to explore and he deserves that. The dogs all do get walks from the shelter but it is set in an industrial park so not much wildlife there. Today i'll take him to the beach and see what he makes of that.
Thanks for you kind thoughts.
