Bernie loves to give big kisses and bear hugs. He has a smile that is hard to forget and soft brown eyes that will make you melt.
Due to lack of formal training, he needs consistent leash training. He is a lap dog, completely unaware of his size. He has never been exposed to children. I have cats and Bernie loves to stare at them but hasn't grasped the "gentle giant" factor. He has such a puppy mindset he forgets he is big!
It is important to me that he goes to someone who is patient and kind.
He is neutered and UTD on all required vaccinations. He is microchipped, heart worm negative and on a heartworm and flea preventative.
