Bruno Kriz, | Kriz Physical Therapy Mascot & Motivation Coach
Meet Bruno! He is our 8 years old Lab Mix and is the unofficial employee/mascot at Kriz Physical Therapy.
Bruno is your typical “everyone he meets him falls in love with him immediately” lab. He has a LOT of friends – basically everyone he meets at KPT is his new best friend, especially if you come with any goodies for him. He loves to observe our clients completing their treatment from the comfort of his dog bed and sometimes you will hear him cheer you on as he likes to be very vocal.
The Kriz Family adopted Bruno at 4 years old from the local humane society. They discovered that Bruno had a rough start to life and he suffers from Hip Dysplasia due to a previous traumatic injury. Being a family of physical therapists, Bruno was adopted into a family who understood his injuries and gave him the love he needed. You can find Bruno blocking the front door as it has the best sun for his sunbathing or sleeping in his bed while you complete your session.
