As well as his physical injuries, he was also deeply traumatized by years of neglect. Pilar Delgado, a member of the association, toldThe Dodo :

Bron is one of the most difficult cases we have encountered. When we first approached, he would flee, snarling.

Even when brought to safety, he was very scared and defensive. But his rescuers didn't lose hope and after many days trying to touch him, Bron finally let them:

Despite years of neglect and abuse, Bron has now become very affectionate and used to human contact. Pilar Delgado continued:

He is a happy dog, but he still has barriers to overcome. Bron's heart still hopes that, despite all the difficulties, he can live out his days with a family.
