Sweet Bernie is well-mannered, loving, and quiet. He knows the words, outside, potty, speak, take, leave it, ball and squirrel, and crate, and loves to play fetch. His young owner cannot keep him because she can't afford his medical treatment, likely for Cushing's. A loving adult home that is nurturing would be ideal. We will provide support. He is good with older kids, and teens are fine. No cats. We will provide medical support for possible Cushings. Apply on CrisisDogsNC.org. We reply only to completed applications, no calls. Excellent vet reference and virtual home visit required. Your prior or current dog must be on year-round heartworm prevention. We prefer a fenced yard but this is not required for all our dogs. We transport by land or air whenever possible.
