About me

Hi, I am Bruce, Bruce Almighty, Patterdale by name and Patterdale by nature. All the true terrier traits I have in abundance.  Don’t let my greying muzzle lead you into a false sense of senior dog hood. I am up for walking many miles with the odd hedge dive thrown in for good measure.  I am currently looking for a new home via our home direct scheme with owners up for some quality time, adventures and cuddles of course.

 I do have a very independent side and the adage “let sleeping dogs lie” certainly is true to me. When I am snoozing, don’t mess with me, or I will have to tell you! That’s why I can’t live with young children that may startle me.  I currently live with 5 cats and I put up with them after careful introductions. But I may have a sneaky chase when no one is looking. After all I am a terrier.

Other dogs I am happy to walk past out and about, At my age I don’t go looking for trouble. But put your doggie paws on me or jump on my head and I may say something about that! My people say I am generally a happy little chap at home, but they can’t give me the attention I need.  So if you are up for a new best buddy in your life…..I’m your man!
