Bruno is a very handsome Anatolian Shepherd Dog / Maremma Sheepdog mix. According to his previous owner, he is 75% Anatolian and 25% Maremma.
Bruno is a little shy with people but he gets along well with other dogs and is good with cats too. Bruno's date of birth is 10/1/13. He is neutered and fully vetted. We have not tested him with children.
Bruno was rescued by a nationwide all volunteer humane rescue organization called The National Anatolian Shepherd Rescue Network (NASRN). NASRN does not maintain shelters, and so relies on regional volunteers and organizations like DogsOnly to help them rescue and rehome animals.
As with all Anatolians, secure fencing is an absolute requirement! Please don’t be tempted to adopt on an impulse. Typical of Bruno’s Anatolian Shepherd heritage, he could well live to be 15 years old, so you should take the time to carefully consider the long term commitment, expense, and passion it takes to give him the home he deserves. Bruno might be cute, but he will grow into a very large, energetic, and powerful dog. Bringing a very large dog like Anatolian Shepherd into your home will almost certainly involve a significant financial commitment, and will require some personal sacrifice on your part. For that reason we would prefer a family experienced with large breed dogs. Bruno will reward you with unbounded love and devotion, but you must be committed and serious about your decision to bring him into your life. Remember, this is an adoption, not a sale, and we’re very serious about making sure that both you and Bruno are a good match for each other.
Bruno will not be available to meet in at our weekly adoption showing at the West Little Rock Petco on Chenal Parkway (click here for directions) across from Target and Home Depot, but if you would like to meet himin person, click the links on this page to fil out an adoption application, and include an email address so that we can contact you about setting up a meeting.
Bruno’s adoption fee is set by and goes to the National Anatolian Rescue Network and helps to reimburse our expenses for all the necessary vet care that has provided to include: spay or neuter (mandatory - no exceptions, rabies, microchipping and registration, all vaccinations (including all puppy shots, rabies, adult boosters and Bordatella, grooming, Frontline for flea/tick preventative, heartworm check if age appropriate and monthly preventative for all ages while in foster care, collar and 50% of basic training classes. The adoption fee does not reimburse for all the expenses and covers only a portion of the cost of Bruno ’s rescue and rehabilitation expenses. Neither DogsOnly or NASRN receives any type of tax, government or corporate sponsorship. Please keep this in mind when you are adopting a fully vetted dog.

Due to time restraints, we are not able to accept phone calls but we always try and answer all emails within 24 hours. If adopted locally, all of our young and adult dogs are available for a 2 week home visit before finalizing the adoption process (local adoptions only). This is to help ensure it is a good match for all involved without making a final commitment. Puppies under the age of 6 months are not available to go on home visits. All of our rescues are in private homes and not available to be visited outside of showing times. All of our foster homes work with our rescues to ensure they are crate trained and most are also housetrained. None of our foster homes have cats, so we can only make our best guess as to how our rescues would do with cats. We rescue from high kill shelters and once accepted into our program, none of our rescues are euthanized. We provide for all their vet care, socialization and training until an appropriate home can be found. We rely solely on donations and are a 501(c)3 Humane Society.
Thank you for your interest in rescue and in saving the life of a dog. Every day in the United States, 11,000 dogs die.
