Friday Dog of the Day: Bernie

It's Friday, which means it's time to learn all about one of the totally PAWSOME dogs available for adoption from LBR. This week I'd like for you to say hello to BERNIE!!

"Hey, wanna play?"

Bernie is a young guy, only 1-2 years old, and he's looking for the perfect family to play with! He's got lots of boxer energy, and he loves loves LOVES kids. After all, they'll play soccer with him, or play chase around the yard, or play with him in the pool. That's another thing he loves -- water! He'd love someone who has a pool or visits a lake or the ocean a lot so he can splash around with you. Whee!!

 Bernie is housebroken and knows basic commands. But he doesn't really like his crate. It makes him really stressed out to be locked up where he can't see his people. So he'd love someone who works from home, is a stay-home parent, or is retired. I know we'd ALL love that, but Bernie more than most! He's gets along well with other dogs and would love to be able to go to doggie day care or have lots of fun playdates. But he'd probably do best not having a doggy sibling, because he gets a little jealous when he has to share his toys or his people.

"Are you my furever family? I know they're out there!"

Bernie is really sweet and wonderful boy who needs just the right home to make him happy. Please check out his bio page on LBR's website if you think he might be the boy for you!

Don't furget!! My rescue group, Legacy Boxer Rescue, is trying to kick-start a new program to aid senior adoptions. LBR is in a contest to win $3,000 from the Animal Rescue Site! Our program is called "Gray Muzzle Boxers are Awesome!" You can vote here once a day until September 16th. We're finally in first place, but we have the teeny tiniest lead possible. Please help us win! Vote every day you can, and please share this link with anyone else who might help us out!

  2. Hi Casey...
    We apologize for your picture not being in the collage. Ms S grabbed pics from the links at the bottom of our blog on class day. Ms. S did not know all the teachers. We are hanging her head in shame at missing some of the teachers. The collage was a surprise otherwise we would have asked the teacher's for their pic.....
    Hugs Madi and Mom

  3. We hope Bernie finds that wonderful home and Baby Austin too - we can't believe he still hasn't been scooped up. Paws crossed for all of your rescues to get lucky. We continue to vote too.

    Woos - Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, and Lightning
