Bruno is a small Affenpinscher who had a rough beginning. Abused and abandoned at three months old, he was adopted by a shelter for homeless women. Since arriving at First Light Shelter in Birmingham, Alabama, he has brought companionship and joy to the women living there.
The four women living permanently on the fourth floor of the shelter adopted Bruno, knowing full well what it's like to not have a home. He's now three years old and is very well looked after by his four moms who take turns looking after Bruno and showering him with love.
"I thought it was wonderful, it was great we were going to get a dog and rescue him, give him a chance for a better life," Joy McCluskey, one of Bruno's guardians, said. Joy smiles and cuddles Bruno and said he's made a big difference in their lives. "He makes life joyful."
