SPOTLIGHT ON BERNIE:
Hi, my name is BERNIE. I am a medium-sized lady dog, part German
Shepherd and I was born in August 2005. Some of my brothers and
sisters are also in the program - Reese, Beauty, and Rebel. While
Rebel was lucky enough to go into a home with a student who loves
him very much, my sisters and I still live at sanctuary. Don't get
me wrong - we have fun where we are, but I would really love a forever
home and family. You should have seen me when I first arrived at
the sanctuary. I was so scared that hardly anyone could touch me.
I get pretty nervous in new situations. I have to tell you though
that I'm proud of myself lately. I've come out of my shell quite
a bit these last few months.
I really enjoy getting petted now and will actually run up to the
volunteers (I used to run away from them). I am also working on
getting comfortable with baths and being walked on a leash. I like
most other dogs but I'm not too sure about cats as I've never really
been around them. I would definitely be up for trying to meet cats
though. I need a person who will have patience with me - it may
take a lot of patience. But, if you're willing to give me a chance,
I think you'll find out how sweet and loving I really am.
Bernie is spayed, microchipped, and up-to-date on her shots.

Bernie is sometimes at our adoption booth at PETCO at Governors
Square Blvd. on the 2nd and 4th SATURDAY of the month, 12:00 - 5:00.
