TUSCALOOSA – Sometimes big things come in small packages. This one could be a perfect match for your home.

Meet Bruiser, a 1- to 2-year-old beagle mix. He weighs 12 and a half pounds, but he’s fully grown. He loves going out and getting exercise, but also enjoys getting and giving plenty of cuddles. He’s a calm and quiet dog, and is really affectionate.

“He’s fun, but he’ll just as soon be right on your lap at night when you watch a movie, just giving you lots of hugs and kisses,” said Tina Miller with the Humane Society of West Alabama.

Bruiser is housebroken, well-mannered and is learning basic commands.

“He’s past that puppy stage,” Miller said. “You know, that annoying gnawing stage where he doesn’t have basic behaviors that older dogs have.”

Bruiser is up-to-date on his shots, is neutered, heartworm negative and microchipped. His adoption fee is $75.

If you want to adopt Bruiser, or any other pets available at the Humane Society of West Alabama, call 205-554-0011 or email humaneswa@yahoo.com.
