Bernie's Story...
Bernie is a king-sized lap dog. He is about 58-60 pounds. This boy is about 3 and is a happy-go-lucky boy. Bernie is high energy and playful with other dogs. He will need to meet any future fur siblings just to be sure they mesh. He prefers slow intros and confident handler But once he meets another dog, he friendly and delightful. Bernie will need a fenced-in yard. His manners have gotten so much better with a little time and patience, but he will need an experienced owner to help guide him. This boy is sweet and eager to please! Bernie would be best with older children (but only so he doesn't accidentally knock them down giving kisses).

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Bernie, a Hermitage Newfoundland/Border Collie dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Newfoundland/Border Collie for sale in Hermitage, or seeking a Newfoundland/Border Collie dog from a breeder in Hermitage.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Hermitage already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Hermitage breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Newfoundland/Border Collie breeders who help with Newfoundland/Border Collie rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Hermitage paves the way for another one to be saved.
