I’m in foster. Submit an application to start the online adoption counseling process.

Please read the info below before applying to adopt!

  • Animal ID#: A304317
  • Dog Name: Bernard
  • Dog Sex: Neutered Male
  • Approximate Age: 3 years
  •  We suspect this very gentle and calm guy hasn’t had very much kindness in his life. When he’s shown kindness and that people can show him plenty of love, his adorable side comes out! He’d prefer to be your only dog. In a loving home environment that will go slowly, give him a comfy space to decompress and relax, we suspect he’ll acclimate quickly and really start to shine!

Submit an application to start the online adoption counseling process or to find out more about Bernard.

Meeting Dogs at the Shelter 

The shelter’s kennels are loud, stressful places for dogs. Some dogs express that stress by exhibiting behavior inside a kennel that they will not show otherwise. Please ask to take the dog you are interested into a play yard and spend some time getting to know him or her in that more relaxed environment. For more information on meeting dogs at the shelter, please read this article.
