Bernie is a handsome, strong, loving and snugly, four-year-old, 26-pound, tri-color Beagle with warm brown eyes looking for a wonderful dog-loving guardian. Bernie was found stray in Kalamazoo, Michigan, in April of 2017. The poor guy had been hit by a car and his front right leg was broken into three pieces. Lucky for him, a kind young woman adopted him from the SPCA of Southwest Michigan. His leg was in a cast, and he was heartworm positive. His leg healed beautifully and without a limp, but his best friend moved to Chicago and soon found herself to be homeless. Her choices were to move to a group home by herself, or live on the freezing streets with her beloved dog. So, Bernie came to live with me. He was treated for heartworm just this week and is trying his best to stay calm and quiet while looking for the perfect home. Not easy being calm and quiet when you are a young Beagle. He gets along with other laid-back dogs and cats. But, he'd much prefer all your attention. Bernie loves his women. He's not much of a family dog because he latches on to one person in the household to love and has no interest in anyone else. He is housebroken and crate-trained. He knows the commands sit, down and paw. He is accustomed to being walked on leash a few times a day. To meet and possibly adopt Bernie, please contact email@example.com for an adoption application. He is neutered, up-to-date on vaccines, micro-chipped, and recently treated for heartworm. He is currently being fostered in Chicago's Andersonville neighborhood. His adoption fee of $250 benefits the rescued pets of Friends of Petraits.
