I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and not good with cats.
Bernie is a true example of his name, Bernardo, which means “strong as a bear”; he is a big boned, gentle, cuddly, eight year old Biggy Iggy. We don’t have a “back-story” on Bernie because he came into Rescue from a Shelter but we do know that his dental care was neglected for several years; a recent thorough dental resulted in the loss of all of his teeth. Being toothless does not affect his ability to eat which is why he is currently on a diet and exercise plan to help him lose a bit of extra weight. He is a “couch potato” by nature so a daily walk should be part of his routine. He walks well on leash, is comfortable around other dogs but he is also content to be an only dog if you can provide enough one-on-one companionship for him. Bernie is house-trained to take himself outside to potty so his new home will need to have secure, fenced outdoor space and a doggy door. If you are looking for a calm, best buddy and you have room in your bed and your heart for this loving bear please contact IGCA Rescue for an application package.
