Meet Spectrum, the most adorable sweetheart with whom you will fall head over heels in love. At just two years old and 60 lbs, Spectrum is already a well-behaved and well-trained pup. He's potty and crate-trained, making him the perfect addition to any loving home. One of Spectrum's favorite things in the world is going for car rides and playing. It's an absolute delight to watch him in action, especially when he's having a blast with his toys! With his shiny black and white coat, Spectrum is undeniably handsome. He loves snuggling up and staying cozy, enjoying every moment of warmth and comfort. One of Spectrum's greatest joys is meeting new people and welcoming them to his fan club! He's incredibly friendly and loves making new friends. So, get ready for lots of tail wags, sloppy kisses, and endless cuddles when you meet this lovable furball! Don't miss out on the opportunity to have this amazing pup as part of your family. #AdorableSweetheart #CuddleExpert #CARESTLPUP

Story
Bertie is the best boy and a gentleman. He is a velcro dog who loves to make the best of a lazy day sleeping on a lap. He is great in his crate and is potty trained. He never tires of pets, scratches, or belly rubs. He is amazing indoors. He loves chew toys and is super chill. He is food motivated and eager to learn new skills. He is currently learning/practicing sit, down, and touch. He's so smart and curious! He can learn anything and would do best with consistent and reinforcement of good habits. He is a champ at bath time and behaves nicely until he is allowed out of the tub. Bertie loves to watch out the window to see what is going on, but does not get overly excited. He is not reactive to critters on the yard. He is great in the car and loves an outing. Obviously he is very strong and needs someone who can help him manage and learn good leash habits. He seems unsure of other dogs right now. Bertie is a PEOPLE person. He LOVES to snuggle. Bertie will make some lucky person(s) an amazing, loving and loyal companion!
