Furry Friend Friday With Bruschi!


Happy Furry Friend Friday everyone!  Today I got to sit down with this handsome boy named Bruschi, up for adoption at the Lowell Humane Society.  Bruschi is an 8 year-old husky/shepherd mix and has had a rough few months, he’s currently recovering from a leg injury after being hit by a bus!  This cutie is a trooper though and took some time to chat with me this afternoon.

So Bruschi, I’m glad to see you’re recovering!  What is your favorite way to spend the day?

Thank you, I’m feeling a lot better and have more pep in my step every day!  My favorite thing to do is be around people though.  I love my friends here at the shelter and they even let me hang out in the office with them sometimes!  I would have to say that is my favorite way to spend the day, I don’t like to be alone for too long.  I’m also talented too!  I’m a very good singer and if you start to howl, I’ll howl right along with you!

I know you’re an older guy and are very mature, but do you ever take some time to play with toys?

I love playing with toys no matter how old I am!  My absolute favorite toy is a squeaky plush ball that I bring everywhere with me!  When I do have to be alone, having my toys makes me feel a little better.

Do you like to go for walks?

I actually just started going for walks and I’m doing great!  I can’t go too far yet, but I’m building up my strength as we speak.  I have more pep in my step every day and am feeling better than ever.

What about fears?  Is there anything that scares you?

Not that I can think of, I’m not trying to brag but I’m a pretty tough guy, I am part shepherd and husky after all!

What do you think would be the perfect family for you?

Well, I would love to be with someone that would be home a lot to give me attention and pet me.  Maybe a retired couple looking for a companion or a family with a lot of kids to play with me!  I’m a friendly boy and would get along with almost everyone, except for other animals.  I would have to be the only pet in my new home because I don’t like to share the spotlight and want all of your attention for myself!

Bruschi, why do you think pet insurance is a good thing for all pet parents to consider?

Well, as I’ve seen in my own life, accidents happen and you never know when they will be so it’s hard to budget for something unexpected like that.  I was very lucky here at the shelter because after I was injured I had a lot of nice people taking care of me!

Bruschi’s story is a perfect example of why pet insurance is a great investment.  He was unexpectedly hit by a bus and if that were to happen to any pet, the vet bills would be pretty high.  If you have pet insurance, the majority of the costs for treatment would be covered!  As all pet parents know, our furry friends can always find a way to get into trouble, whether it’s something as harmless as going through the trash, or getting loose and winding up in the wrong place at the wrong time like Bruschi.  Call us for a free pet insurance quote today and protect your furry friend and your wallet from the unexpected.



Furry Friend Friday With Lena!


We’re back with another Furry Friend Friday interview!  Today I got to chat with Lena, a 5 year-old lab/shepherd mix up for adoption at the Scituate Animal Shelter!  Lena was surrendered by her previous owner and has been waiting for her forever home for a few months now.  This sweet girl is very active and would be the perfect companion for a young couple!

So Lena, what is your favorite way to spend the day?

I LOVE to be outside more than anything!  I live for adventures and walks, getting out of the shelter and being able to smell the fresh air is the best feeling, I can’t wait until I find my forever home and can go outside and explore all the time!  I also like to go for rides in the car, as long as we aren’t on our way to the vet!  I love long rides and don’t even get car sick!

It sounds like you have a lot of energy, do you have a favorite place you like to go for walks so you can burn it all off?

Well the shelter here is in Scituate so we are very close to the beach!  The staff bring me down there once in a while and I can’t get enough,  I love the way the ocean smells and the feeling of sand between my toes, it’s a lot nicer to run on than pavement!  We also have some trails in the woods here behind the shelter and that is fun too, the woods have so many things to smell and I love getting to hear the birds chirping!

Do you have a favorite toy to play with?

The only toys we have here in the shelter are tennis balls and frisbees and those are a lot of fun! We don’t get other toys because the staff doesn’t want us to get too possessive or protective of our toys around other dogs.  I think I would enjoy a nice rope to play tug of war with or a squeaky toy though, maybe when I get my own home I will have a bunch of toys that are all for me!

What about any fears?

Well, I’m not saying I’m afraid of other dogs, I just don’t like them.  We don’t really get along very well, at least not here in the shelter.  The other dogs here are always barking and it drives me crazy!  Can’t a girl get some peace and quiet?  Maybe once I settle into my own home I could deal with another pet, but it would have to be the right one and I’m still a little weary of the idea.  I like all of the attention on me!

Lena, why do you think pet insurance is important for all pet owners?

Well life can be pretty unpredictable, after living with a family of my own, I never expected to wind up in a shelter!  Who knows what else could happen when you least expect it, better to be safe than sorry!

How many of you pet owners out there have ever had an unexpected vet bill throw a wrench into your monthly budget?  It always seems to happen at the worst possible time too, but with pet insurance you don’t have to worry about getting your pet the care they need because they will be covered!  Call us at MassDrive for a pet insurance quote today!
