Bruce is a mellow dude who's happy to just sit by the window and watch the world go by. But, hey, if you'd rather go out for a walk in the world, he's up for that, too!

Bruce is a perfectly polite houseguest-he's house-trained, does great left home alone, and knows how to stay off the furniture (unless you invite him up to cuddle!). He's a gentle, loving boy who listens well, does what he's told and sleeps soundly through the night.

With his easygoing demeanor, this handsome boy is a pro with kiddos, and will even cry if one of his little humans gets a boo-boo! When he's not enjoying a good nap, he loves nothing more than to lounge in the backyard, gnaw on his bone or just hang by his people's side.

If your home could benefit by having its own PERFECT ANGEL, come meet Bruce!

INTERESTED IN FOSTERING?

We are currently closed to the public and are only open by appointment (foster or adopter), but we are still diligently working to place dogs in foster homes! You can inquire about fostering a specific dog by submitting an inquiry through the dog's individual profile on this website or by emailing [email protected] to get more information about how to be matched with a foster dog.

Please do not visit our shelters without talking with us first. To prevent community spread, we cannot have large crowds gathering in our shelters.

What That Animal Rescue Show Means to APA!

Almost a year ago, we were approached by a film crew about a super top secret docuseries being produced by none other than the Austin film legend, Richard Linklater. All we knew about its focus was “t...
