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
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). Not having another canine
companion isn’t a deal breaker as long as I have a human around. 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). I will need someone who is willing to work
with my anxiety issues and medication follow up. And I would like someone
at home with me when there is a thunderstorm – I HATE those!
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. I
consider myself a GSP that requires “extra TLC” to be happy and truly at
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
