Hi All! I’m Bruiser. I’m a 9 lb, 8-year-old Maltipoo who truly believes everyone loves me! There’s nothing I enjoy more than meeting and greeting new people, giving kisses, cuddling and snuggling with them!
Ironically, I was named Bruiser when I was just a wee, 2 lb pup, but I prove time and time again, that my name is perfect for me. I’m a brave boy, willing to try and do anything…especially if treats are involved! If we’re playing, I love to barrel into my siblings, using all my weight. I have no problems playing with dogs of any size…the bigger the better! After all, I’m just a big dog in a little dog’s body!!
A few years ago, Mommy signed me up for swimming lessons. I took to it quickly and Mommy saw the potential for me to go further. With her guidance, and step by step practice, I became a dock diver!! This means I run and jump off a two foot high dock into a pool of water. Your score is measured by how far you jump and where the base of your tail hits the water…my personal best is 8 feet 6 inches! I jump, go under water, come back up, grab my ball and then swim out…and my tail never stops wagging!
I have lots of funny and cute routines! Every morning I wait outside the bedroom door for Mommy to wake up, so I can give her a hug. After our hug, I immediately run for the cozy cave and bury in until breakfast time. I can jump into the car on my own, but I can only jump in from the driver’s side…even though I sit on the passenger side. When my travel harness gets put on, I put it in my mouth and prance off to the family room, holding it in between my teeth the entire time. When Mommy gets out the treats, I just start waving at her, because I’m sure that’s the trick she wants me to do. I just learned how to do it last year…and Mommy says I’ve got the best Wave ever!!
My nickname is #SuperB, because there’s nothing I can’t do! I’m a dock diver, a barn hunter, a nose worker, an obedience master, a trick dog, a professional model, a skate boarder, a gymnast, a good kisser, a great brother, and a best friend! And, I do it all with a happy, upbeat, positive attitude
