MEET BERT

He's our sweet floppy earred shepherd mix who was rescued from Robeson County Animal Shelter in Lumberton, NC.

Bert stole our hearts when we saw his sad sweet face and realized he was abandoned by his owners and was FACING THE POSSIBILITY OF BEING EUTHANIZED BECAUSE NO ONE WANTED HIM! Dogs in the kennels around him were all being rescued and adopted, but not this guy!
*Could it be because he was timid and stood back waiting for someone to show him love rather than jump and wag his tail steadily with enthusiasim?
*Could it be because he was what they labeled "odd looking"
*Could it be that it was because he had no special needs- no special story?

We don't know why Bert was overlooked- we just know we could not look past his sad face and those pleading eyes and not make the rescue. And, now he will need a forever home!

Bert is an amazing dog who is pretty low maintenance. He gets along with everyone and is such a patient soul who waits for his turn at eating, who steps back for your guidance and direction, and who is easy to share your space with!

Bert has been treated for heart and is being fostered in MD. Prior to his injections he was neutered, brought current on all vaccines and micro chipped. Once his treatment has been completed he will be ready for a family that will just LOVE and CARE about him now for the rest of his life. He's thought to be around 1-1.5 years old and is a small fellow weighing in at only 38lbs.

So, if you've been thinking of getting a dog that will be wonderful company, please consider Bert. He will being you years of love and enjoyment!
