Bernadette - Overlooked?!
Bernadette has a mostly white coat with some patches of brown on her ears and near the base of her tail. She also has beautiful blue eyes. The photos of Bernadette do not do her justice. She really is a stunning dog!
Bernadette is our longest resident. She has been in our care since February 2014, and really deserves a real home!
Bernadette was picked up by animal control after she was running for nearly 6 hours. At first Bernadette was terrified and exhausted in her new surroundings. She had been spotted with a male dog, that was caught by a resident, and has since found a forever home. It was clear that life for Bernadette had been rough. Once she gained the trust of the Animal Control Officer and shelter volunteers, we could tell she had been abused previously. When you would go to pet her head, she would duck her head and closer her eyes like she was ready for someone to hit her. She no longer flinches at hands coming her way, and knows that from here on out, she will be safe with people.
Bernadette was all set to be adopted, we found out she was Heartworm positive. The adoptive family did not want to be a part of her recovery from Heartworm, and they decided not to adopt her. Bernadette has since been treated for and is heartworm negative.
Bernadette is very friendly towards people, dogs, and cats. We do know that she tends to be an alpha female, and will hump other dogs, so if there is an existing dog in the household this would require some intervention and training.
She appears to be house trained, and does not go to the bathroom in her crate. We believe she is between 2-4 years old.
