Bernie is a timid little dude with a rough past filled with neglect.  He was rescued from a hoarding situation where he was left chained outdoors 24/7 with no human interaction and was fed when someone remembered to give him some scraps. However that hasn’t stopped him from learning how to love!  He is sweet and shy and slow to warm up but once he knows you, he loves to be loved! Bernie would be best in a house with no small children. He does well with other dogs, but would prefer a mellow or smaller pup as a house mate.  Unfortunately, due to his lack of early socialization and exposure to new experiences, sometimes Bernie is still scared by loud noises and quick movements.  Because Bernie spooks easily, he will need to be in a very secure yard, and on a leash at all times when he is outside.  Bernie loves to just hang out in little nooks or in his bed as it helps him feel more secure. He loves walks, and gets very excited for meal time. Bernie is very gentle, sweet and quiet and needs someone who is the same. 

Would you like to be the luck person to get to show Bernie how beautiful life can be?  If so, please e-mail us at savealife@4liferescue.org

About 4Life Animal Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Our furry friends come to us in a variety of ways – the streets/strays, owner surrenders, with most of them coming from our local shelters.

Every animal brought in to the 4Life Family is given 100% from us to ensure they are healthy and happy. Like people, no two animals are the same. More often than not, when a new animal comes to us, it takes time to learn who they are, what they like (and who they like) and do not like. We do our best to learn the animals personality, get them on the right path with good manners and basic obedience training, and nurture and love them so their little personalities can shine. There is nothing quite like a happy, healthy, well behaved rescue pet!

Our Adoption Process...

*Adoption Application
*Home check
*Adoption contract
*Non-Negotiable adoption fee ranging from $200 to $300
What the adoption fee covers:
* All medical – All 4Life animals are
up-to-date on vaccinations including Rabies, spayed or neutered, micro-chipped and flea control. In certain cases, some of our rescues require an extensive amount of medical treatment to get them healthy. We will spare no expense when it comes to the health and well being of our animals. Extensive medical costs will never be passed on to the adopting family; but, your adoption fee does help us recover some of the costs.

*Supplies – Food, leash and collar, treats, blankets, toys, bathing/grooming products
*In some cases, animals may need to be boarded or go in to a training program. Again, these costs will never be passed on to the adopting family, but a portion of your adoption fee will help us recover some of the cost.
