Berta is a 7 year old collie mix who came to us as an owner surrender due to her family moving out of the country. Berta is a sweet girl but definitely overweight at 70lbs. Losing at least 30 pounds should be the goal to improve her mobility, mild arthritis and overall wellbeing. She is otherwise in good health.
Possibly because of her weight issues, Berta does not like other dogs to be in her space, so would do best in a home without other dogs and small children. She does like people, though, and seems to be a happy girl, ready to go for short walks a few times a day. Berta would love to find her forever home.
The adoption fee is $150.00 which includes current vaccines, spaying or neutering and heartworm/flea preventative.
Your first step in adopting a new family member is to fill out an adoption application. The application must be completed with phone numbers and a vet reference (an old one, or a reason why there is not one) before it will be processed. Your application will not be processed without this information. Visit our website at www.lakenormanhumane.org to download an application. IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, PLEASE EMAIL firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for your interest in our animals!
