Crate trained!


Welcome Bernard! Bernard is a sweet, shy dog who enjoys living a low-key life. He is 2 years old and 18 pounds, and we can’t wait to get to know him better!

Bernard is potty trained! He is still working on becoming more comfortable with his kennel, and will whine for a little bit when first put in it. However, having his kennel in the same room as Foster Mom or having some white noise play or a nightlight helps soothe him. Soon he should see his kennel as his safe space!

Bernard is a shy boy, and prefers hanging out with people over dogs. He does well with low-key, relaxed dogs, but isn’t interested in playing with them. He would much rather snuggle up with Foster Mom, or go on some short walks. Once you’ve become Bernard’s person, be prepared to have an extra shadow following you around! He would make a perfect companion for someone looking for a furry companion, and wants to make sure that you never feel lonely!

Bernard is a young dog, but doesn’t require a lot of exercise. He enjoys taking a few long walks, and then will be content to just relax and lounge around at home. He is also working on exercising his brain to learn commands – in German! Currently Bernard is working on mastering “heel,” “sit,” and “lay down.”

Are you ready to give Bernard the loving family he’s dreamed of? Contact us today!
