Regardless of how handsome he is, he was also heart worm positive. That would not help get him a rescue or a home so Diamond Dogs Rescue took him under their wing rather than to see him end up in a shelter. He has completed his heart worm treatment, is current on all vaccines, is neutered, microchipped and ready for a home where he will not have to hide from other dogs! You see, he LOVES humans but is afraid of dogs because of his past.
He is currently with our trainer in NH where he's learned confidence and some basics to get ready for a home.
This black lab/mix is 1-2 years old he has learned not all dogs will attack him...but he is selective about the dogs he likes. Because of his past we feel he is best suited to a home that will have him be the only dog. He is very friendly, loves people and has a great personality. If you are a one dog family, Bernie will be an excellent choice!
