Ernie is such a lovable boy! He thinks life is pretty perfect as long as he has your attention. At 17 pounds he still considers himself a lap dog if you will let him be. He will also lay down beside you, but mostly after playtime. He is still just a puppy and you can see it in all his antics that make you smile! Ernie is good with everyone whether human or animal. He is working on house and leash training. Ernie was born with a skin disease called dermatomyositis. You can read about it here: https://vcahospitals.com/know-your-pet/dermatomyositis Ernie will probably need to be on medication for the rest of his life. Once you meet Ernie you will know that he is worth going the extra mile for. Ernie is a 5 month old American Eskimo. His adoption fee is $250.00.
