After living seven years in a home, Bruno, an adorable and sweet Pit bull from the East Coast has found himself homeless because his owners got a divorce, bought white carpet and no longer want the dog.

According to The Dodo, when a relative learned the pet owner was planning on getting rid of the dog It’s A Ruff Life Rescue was contacted to save the pet from ending (and possibly dying) at the local pound.

The rescue organization learned Bruno had lived all his life with his owners but hadn’t really experienced love. The owners trained the pet not to lick by refusing to pet him, and for the past two years Bruno had not felt the loving touch of his humans.

The only source of love Bruno had was from a shih tzu friend and house companion, sadly, now that Bruno was getting kicked out of his house, he was losing his only friend too.

The Pit bull’s owners divorced and the wife agreed to take the shih tzu but not Bruno, and after the arrival of the white carpet Bruno had to go.

For now the Pit bull is with It’s A Ruff Life Rescue, but he deserves to find a loving home that will spoil him and show him true love.

“Bruno is still in need of a foster in the tri-state area,” posted the rescue organization on their Facebook page. “This boy has had it rough but we are determined to right the wrongs of his previous crappy owner and give him a wonderful life that he deserves!”

Bruno adores people and children, but the stress of losing his home and friends has taken a toll on him. Rescuers think it would be best to send him to a home where he will be the only pet. He is potty trained and past his puppy stage. He loves to roam free at home and enjoys the companionship of humans.
