Hi! My Name Is RUSSO

I'm Available

Russo is a big 1 year old boy. He lived with his dad for the last 9 months but was surrendered when the military called his owner to be deployed to Japan. He loved his big baby boy.  At BRLA Russo was understandably in shock and afraid at first.  He made it clear he was uncomfortable so we go slow until he is comfortable.  When Russo is happy there is a lot of happiness to go around.  His previous owner said he took him to dog parks, but we find him a little insecure and defensive around certain dogs. Happy go lucky dogs are fine with Russo.  He can also be a little hesitant with certain people.  Russo is nothing more than a really big baby boy in need of more worldly experience. A confident human to be his guide will be rewarded with the biggest goofball best friend.
