Bernard Apply to adopt me

Or, make a donation toward my care:

Physical Description: Bernard (aka Bernie) has a shiny soft coat, endearing eyes, and perky ears. He is black with a little triangle of white on his chest and a white spot on his neck.

Personality: Bernie is a sweet boy who loves to be by your side for all activities. He would be a great running partner, as he is energetic and needs lots of exercise. Bernie also enjoys playing with his toys, especially his Kong. Bernie does well in the car and is working on his leash manners while hiking and walking in the woods and around the neighborhood. So far, Bernie has learned "Sit," is fully potty trained, and is very responsive to voice commands. Bernie loves to play with other dogs, and is a friendly guy to all dogs big and small. Bernie has lots of love to give and needs an active family who is home a lot and wants a dog to cuddle up on the couch or in bed. A fenced yard would also be great!

History: Bernie came to us from a local shelter.
