Shelters are filled with lovable animals that are waiting for the chance at their very own forever family. While happy endings occur every single day in the rescue world, there are also a number of pups who are still waiting for their chance at happiness. Bernie is one of the many who are still waiting.
Bernard is a 6 year old Saint Bernard mix that has been living at the shelter for almost 4 years now. He was found on Christmas Eve of 2015, when he was tied up and abandoned outside of an animal clinic in San Antonio. Bulverde Area Humane Society was the only shelter with any available space that day, so Bernie set off to his temporary home at the shelter. Little did he know, he would remain there for years to come.
Bernie is desperate for the attention and love that he deserves. Each time someone walks past his kennel at the shelter, he does everything possible to gain their attention. He jumps up and down, spins with excitement, and greets his potential adopters with a friendly bark. Unfortunately, his tactics still haven’t landed him a forever home.
Shelter workers aren’t sure why he still remains at the shelter, as he is such a lovable pup! His description states:
“Bernard is looking for an active, outdoor family – especially if you love the water! Bernard loves a good dunking! This big guy has won the hearts of everyone at BAHS, but he will require a special home. We are looking for an adult-only home with no other animals. Bernard wants to be your one and only.
As with all of our dogs, Bernard needs to be an inside dog so he knows he is a cherished member of the family. Bernard is a four-year-old St. Bernard/Labrador mix and weighs 65 lbs.
This sweetheart is neutered, microchipped, current on all vaccinations and heartworm-negative. You can visit with Bernard and all his friends at BAHS on Tues/Thurs/Sat from 10am to 1pm.”
