About Me:

Hi I'm Bruno!

I am a very loving and patient boy!  I am very new to WAG and everyone is just starting to get to know me. I was surrendered to WAG after I was hit by a car, thankfully a very kind person picked me up out of the bushes and took me to the emergency clinic.  I am a good gentle boy  and so far I seem to like calm children, cats and other dogs as long as they don't try to play with me since I am so sore right now. I am looking for a special home who will help me recover from all of my injuries.  I will need someone who is willing to help me with my rehabilitation and physiotherapy exercises and regular visits to the vet to make sure I am healing OK.  So far I have been a very good patient and the WAG staff are very proud of how brave I have been even though I have been in so much pain. I am so thankful to all of the amazing Vet Clinics who have been involved with my care this past week, thank you to all of the wonderful Vets and staff at the  Coast Mountain Clinic, Twin Trees Clinic and Eagleview Clinic. 

My Story:

Last week, I was purposely targeted and maliciously run over by a car.  A very kind and concerned citizen who witnessed the entire horrific event, called WAG and took me to the vet straight away.  I have been in a lot of pain and I have injuries that I may have to live with for the rest of my life.  After my emergency care, I was taken to WAG where I  only spent one night before I  had to be rushed back to the hospital.  I had multiple lacerations, internal bleeding, a collapsed lung, a torn muscle and a fractured pelvis.  I will need a surgery to help fix my broken pelvis in a few weeks once I am stable.  I was very happy to have my catheter removed, however  I am still having a hard time going to the bathroom but am able to be taken around with more ease.   There is an ongoing SPCA Cruelty Investigation already looking into my case but if you would like to help me please consider donating to my Critical Care Fund to help with my ongoing medical costs.
