Bridou arrived at the refuge when he was still a young puppy, and I fear that he will spend the rest of his puppyhood at the refuge, unless he is very lucky. Brought in by a family who claimed to have found him, this young lively lad probably just turned out to be bigger than they expected. There is little doubt that they were his owners; they probably got him for free from leboncoin or another internet site, but soon got bored. What a shame for little Bridou.
He probably has some bernese mountain dog in him; he certainly has the right colouring and the right physique. True, some of it is probably puppy-fat, but he is going to be a chunky boy. He is full of enthusiasm for everything. He shares his box fine, and loves playing and going for walks.
The family that had him previously have given him no education at all, but he is keen to learn and even keener to please whoever is at the other end of the leash. Bridou will make a wonderful family pet, but will need a training minded home, where he can learn all the things he has missed out on thus far.
Bridou was born in January 2018, so he is still a very young dog. Please let’s not let him grow up at the ScPA.
