Ft. Myers

Meet Best Boy Bernie, who is just so excited to meet you.  In fact, Bernie gets really excited about a LOT of things!  He’s a rough and tumble boy - happiest chasing lizards 🦎and splashing in mud puddles!  Add in belly rubs, walks, car rides, and treats, and life is so darn thrilling.  This boy’s unending enthusiasm and happiness is simply a joy to behold.

Yet, at times Bernie’s boisterous zeal can be a little much.  I mean, we get that cars should be barked at and all, so there’s times you’ll be glad for him to get tuckered out.  We’re betting he mellows a bit with age, but it almost seems he just didn’t get enough of this in his life before.

That checks as this big fun guy doesn’t seem to have had a lot of training either, though we love that he listens really well and is learning so much every day.  He really wants to please you.  Oh, and he really wants to be with you too.

He’s fine with other dogs, but not really interested that much.  He’d be fine as an only dog.  Bernie sleeps in a crate now but we’re betting he’d be a great snuggle bug in the big bed.  He loves people but seems to prefer women.  Funny Bernie also adores bath time. 

Does your home have room for a big personality?  Loveable Bernie is waiting for you.
