Hi All, my name is Bernie and I am heartworm-free and READY to RUMBLE (i.e. find my forever home)!!!
Some basics about me.I'm about 6 years old (perfect age), am sweet, lovable and handsome. Okay, now some boring stuff about me. I'm house-trained (duh, that wasn't hard), crate-trained (not my favorite thing), love all humans and dogs but you should probably keep the cats away from me LOL! My favorite thing to do during the day is look for lizards and lounge in the grass. I'm what they call a "low key" GSP Velcro gentleman. What's not to like?! So here's my only challenge. I get anxious when you leave me alone. Well you'd be anxious too if you came from an overcrowded shelter, had surgery to repair a leg laceration (from a very scary event), battled an upper respiratory infection and went through heartworm treatment. The good news is, if I have canine foster siblings to keep me company I'm MUCH better (well, some medication helps me as well). I am soooo much better with my anxiety so I'd say it's a "minor" challenge at the moment. The biggest challenge for me is finding the right forever home (since, well, it's forever).
Here's what I'm looking for in my forever family: 1) I would love a family where someone works from home so I can keep an eye on you. I'm also a very good Office Assistant. 2) I like to hunt for lizards, but I'm not your typical 'high energy' GSP that requires a huge yard to run in for hours. But I'd like a fenced in area so I don't wander. 3) You must take me with you on road trips since I love riding in the car and being with you. See, I'm not too picky. But the final thing I must have in a forever family is someone that adores me, cuddles with me in the evenings, doesn't forget to feed me (very important) and loves me as much as I love them.
If you think you're the right family for me please complete an adoption application (if you haven't already) and email my foster Mom Virginia.
P.S. I'm an adult GSP that is neutered, fully vetted and temperament tested so my adoption fee is $375
