Bernie

URGENT DOG SAVVY ADOPTER NEEDED!! Bernie is living in boarding on Long Island and needs a home!! Bernie is a 3-year old Boxer/Saint Bernard mix and was adopted from us as a young #pup. There was a dominant male in the home and sadly the dynamic has gotten worse over the years.  Bernie was a super sweet and impressionable puppy who learned some undesirable behaviors from his dog Bro. He’s living in a cage in boarding and needs out NOW. Bernie needs someone to take him in and let him decompress from living in a cage and from living with a bossy older dog bro. Bernie is an athletic, playful and loyal dog. He’s a great running partner and loves to snuggle. He gets super attached and just wants to be near his owner. Bernie really loves toys and bones and can get a little possessive of his things so we recommend a home with no kids and a dog savvy person who can manage this behavior and/or help him unlearn it.  He’s a highly social guy who enjoys being chased and lives to play tug of war. He’s 40 lbs- house trained- great with other low key female dogs. We don’t know about cats He’s an awesome dog but needs more socialization with other dogs and an experienced owner. He’s going crazy in boarding. Please help us get him out!

To adopt Bernie submit an application on our website gimmeshelteranimalrescue.org. The adoption fee is $400, which includes neuter and age appropriate shots.. We require a fully fenced in yard and not an invisible fence.
