What APA! says about Bernard:

He is the most lovable dog. All he wants to do is please you.

This boy is so sweet, and always sparks up when it's time to go for a walk. He is a little scared of other dogs barking at him, so ideally he can find a household without dogs — or tested with a current dog to see how they would get along. We wouldn't want him to get too excited and re-injure his leg!

He is vaccinated and heartworm negative! He's ready for a great family to bring him home!

Why APA! says he deserves your love:

"He is an awesome dog that deserves the best," says one APA! employee. He loves treats, loves to play, really enjoys hitting the trails for a walk. Because he had an injured back leg, we have been taking it easy with him, and are looking for someone to adopt — or even foster him — to re-acclimate him to life outside of the kennels.
