Bernie is a sweet boy who was found as a stray and surrendered to the shelter and never claimed. He's approximately 3-4 years old and active as is typical for most Rat Terrier's. Bernie loves children and does very well at our adoption events. He's selective of other male dogs but is fine with other neutered males. Dog adoption is 130.00 and includes spay/neuter, heartworm testing, age appropriate vaccines including a 3 year rabies, health exam, deworming, and microchipping. Any animal 6 months or older is considered an adult. No animals are vetted until they are adopted as we do not have a vet on staff. Once the animal is adopted we make a vet appointment, and they must go to be vetted before they can go home with an adopter. Call 985.651.7387 for more information regarding adoption.
Act quickly to adopt Bernie. Pets at this Shelter may be held for only a short time.
