Meet the Animal Welfare League’s Biggest Adoptable Pet: Bruce

Bruce is a big boy with a lot of heart.

The two-year-old mastiff is a large dog currently looking for a new home in the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria (AWLA).

“At over 100 pounds, Bruce is the largest animal currently at the AWLA,” said Gina Hardter, spokesperson for the AWLA. “But he’s so sweet, we think at least 25 pounds of that must be his big heart.  Check out how he dwarfs the kiddie pool!”

Beyond his bulk, Bruce can also boast being bilingual (not counting barks). Bruce is familiar with some commands in both English and Spanish.

“Bruce is a clever puppy who’s always up for learning,” Hardter said. “He’s bilingual on several of his commands, so whether you ask him to Sit or Sientate, Bruce is happy to oblige.”

Prospective owners of the many-talented mastiff can meet him and learn more about the adoption appointment process at the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria at AlexandriaAnimals.org/Adopt-By-Appointment.
