Bernie was adopted!
Miniature Poodle

MYM Canine-ality:
Busy Bee

I’m a naturally playful, curious, and trusting canine. Take me for a big walk every day; give me something to do. After my job’s done, I’ll curl up in front of the fire with you in the evenings. (Externally motivated) Learn more about Meet Your Match Canine-alities

Big fan of: Being super sweet and affectionate to his people—especially if there are belly rubs involved—and other dogs.

Not a fan of: Rushing into things and sharing his stuff. Bernie likes to take a little time to get to know new people.

Special features: Bernie is great at walking calmly by your side on a leash and will always be available to cuddle with you when you need it most.

Other reasons he’s special: Bernie has Cushing’s disease. His condition is well managed by medication, but he’ll need to stay on that medication for life at your house.

Dream home: A teens-and-up home that will provide Bernie with appropriate veterinary care is what Bernie needs.
