I’m a naturally playful, curious, and trusting canine. Take me for a big walk every day; give me something to do. After my job’s done, I’ll curl up in front of the fire with you in the evenings. (Externally motivated)
Big fan of: Being super sweet and affectionate to his people—especially if there are belly rubs involved—and other dogs.
Not a fan of: Rushing into things and sharing his stuff. Bernie likes to take a little time to get to know new people.
Special features: Bernie is great at walking calmly by your side on a leash and will always be available to cuddle with you when you need it most.
Other reasons he’s special: Bernie has Cushing’s disease. His condition is well managed by medication, but he’ll need to stay on that medication for life at your house.
Dream home: A teens-and-up home that will provide Bernie with appropriate veterinary care is what Bernie needs.
