Facts about Ernie

  • Breed: Boston Terrier/Italian Greyhound Mix
  • Color: Black
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less

This sweet boy is Ernie, a Boston terr/pug mix with maybe a bit of italian grey hound being his legs are so long and he runs like a little deer! He is tentative and nervous, but a very sweet long-legged boy who is making progress everyday. He gets along great with other dogs and cats. Ernie will need a special human preferably with a confident dog buddy to help him overcome his fears and regain his confidence. He desperately want to give and receive love and with time and patience he will continue to learn how. He and a litter of terr puppies were abandoned when their family moved and left them behind. He is doing great and foster can send a video if you would like to know more!
