Pet of the Week: Bronson the Dog

Bronson is a 5-month-old pit mix. He is currently in foster care, and his foster mom can’t say enough good things about him.

From a recent email update about Bronson, his foster mom reported that with a low-key foster environment, he is really starting to come out of his shell. Bronson is still a bit dependent on other dogs for confidence, and would love to have a dog buddy in the house to help show him the ropes and give him a little more confidence. He also loves play-dates with other dogs.

Bronson is being treated for a non-contagious form of mange, and is consuming a grain-free diet to try to control his mange without the use of medication.
