Are you looking for that special dog, the one whose life you know only you can make better? Are you seeking to rescue a sweet, gentle soul who has been searching for a place to call home and people of his very own? Will you open your heart and home to this special fellow whose minor issues will be resolved with your love, companionship and patience?

If so, then please consider Ernie. He is approximately 6 years old and an adorable scruffy kind of boy. We think he has a bit of terrier in him. He is extremely sensitive and would thrive in a home that is relatively quiet and laid back. He is fine with cats and other dogs as long as they are not too pushy or demanding. He will do everything in his power to avoid confrontations, but will let other dogs know when they've pushed him to the limit. If you have a mellow dog, Ernie would be great with it.

Ernie enjoys going for walks as they broaden his horizons and bolster his confidence. He also enjoys basking in the sunshine. Ernie gets extremely animated at meal times (his) and when his people come home. He is crate trained and having one would help him adjust to a new home and routines. Ernie is very well mannered and understands basic commands. But, the terrier in him can make him a little stubborn!

Nothing is known about Ernie's previous life before coming into rescue a year ago. The one thing we do know is he wants to be around his favorite person(s) as much as possible so a work at home, or retired person would be ideal.

If interested in adopting Ernie, you need to realize he is not a wash and wear kind of guy. He will need to meet you, visit your home, have you take him for walks and possibly “daycare” him for an hour or two over the course of time so that he becomes quite familiar with you, your home and yard.
