Ernie was surrendered to a high kill shelter. His previous owner had kept him in an outdoor kennel where he received very little socialization.
A home with a fenced yard is required for Ernie at this time. He is afraid of the leash and will need someone to work with him on leash walking.
A home with another balanced dog is required for Ernie at this time. He really takes his cues from other dogs and this will help him continue to learn how to be a well adjusted companion.
