- Good with Dogs
Bernie is a very loving and handsome chap who is looking for someone to give him the patience, training and loyalty he deserves. He has been unlucky in life and has been waiting such a long time for a forever home of his own. He would love a quiet, preferably more rural, home, as, being a shepherd type, he is sensitive and vigilant to noises and can be vocal at times. He would thrive in a peaceful adult routine with no children under 18 or cats and preferably not too much time spent on his own. Bernie will grow in confidence and security once he is fully settled in a home, he is currently in kennels and misses home comforts. Bernie is looking for a home in South-East England only.
Bernie could live with another dog provided they are a good match. He has made several friends with other dogs during his time in kennels. He can bark at visitors but quickly learns to trust people and, like many rescue dogs, he attaches to people he knows and forms strong bonds. Bernie is fully house-trained and lead-trained and is a bright boy so will benefit greatly from further training. Bernie is currently in kennels in Maidstone, Kent. Please get in touch if you think you may be able to give him the forever (or foster) home he has been waiting for.
Bernie is a work in progress as he can sometimes be lead-reactive to strange men and dogs on walks. We will offer behavioural support to his adopters to help him overcome his remaining fears and settle in to life in his home. Bernie needs adopters who are able to stick to his training and management plan and not push him out of his comfort zone too soon.
Bernie and his siblings were born in a public shelter in Romania, before a rescue saved them from impending death. His siblings and mother are now happily adopted but Bernie is looking for a new home after his adopter became ill.
Give a Dog a Home UK is a non-profit rescue mainly rehoming dogs that come over from Greece, Cyprus and Romania. They mainly rehome to the South East but also much further afield.
