Bernie's Info...

Bernie's Story...
Bernie is approximately one-year-old and appears to be a Shih Tzu Terrier mix. Bernie does not shed! Bernie is fully housebroken, responds to come here/sit down, and waits to be invited onto your furniture. He also is polite when you eat. Bernie loves all people and most of all to be with his human and other submissive dogs. Bernie likes to engage in puppy play, but has no destructive habits.

While at his foster home he enjoys morning kisses and cuddles in bed. Bernie enjoys his morning, mid-day, late afternoon, and before bed walk. Bernie is afraid of crates and is accustomed to being restricted with a dog gate in a kitchen. Bernie takes a lot of naps and when he is awake likes to sit near (or follow) his human and/or play. Bernie is not overly enthusiastic about his daily eye cleaning, but cooperates and always feels better after his fur is nice and clean. Bernie also enjoys his good night petting and cuddling close to a human to fall asleep.

Bernie is ready to be adopted to a family that works part time, works from home, or is enjoying retirement. Bernie likes other dogs but requires special attention during this transitional period of his life. Bernie is easily intimidated by alpha dogs and would enjoy the company of a playful dog.
