Meet Bernie!

A happy, handsome, boy with the softest fur coat and sweet demeanor. It usually takes Bernie a day or two to trust new people, but once he realizes you’re his friend, you are a friend for life! As for other dogs, he makes friends quickly. Cats are a little too intriguing, so a cat-free home would be best. Bernie is just starting to learn basic obedience commands and will need a family willing to continue with training. He is an energetic, young, dog who enjoys getting outside for walks and playtime. He can be a jumper when excited and would do best in a home with older children he won’t knock over. Bernie is house trained, but his queues to go out are subtle. He has been doing well in a crate at night and for up to 6 hours during the day while his foster family is away. He will bark when someone comes to the door, but is otherwise a quiet guy.

If you are looking for a young, active, dog who is always ready for adventure, then Bernie is your guy!

*The pet you are viewing is a rescued pet which is most often from an animal control facility and does not come with a pedigree. The breed(s) listed are our best guess and are in no way guaranteed. Sometimes the pets appear to be a particular breed(s) in the pictures we receive from our rescue partners and when they arrive we are surprised to see an entirely different breed(s) in person!  If you choose to DNA test your adopted pet, test results may vary from company to company and our breed guess may not be reflected in those results as it is just that, our best guess. It is with deep longing that we wish there was a breed called "cute" as we believe all of our dogs would fall under this new breed classification!

Completion of an Adoption Application via our website is the best way to show your interest in an animal and is the first step in our adoption process. 

*Animals who are not fully vaccinated and altered are not eligible for long distance adoption.

When you adopt a pet from Midwest Animal Rescue and Services, your adoption fee covers: Microchip and registration, Core Vaccines including Rabies, Distemper and bordetella, age appropriate heartworm testing or FeLV-FIV testing, sterilization, heartworm/flea-tick prevention and deworming while in foster care. 

Adoption fees are non-negotiable and can be paid by cashier's check, money order or credit card. We do not accept personal checks.

Any issues that arise after adoption are the full responsibility of the adopter after the finalization of adoption. Adoption fees are only part of the expense of owning a pet, so we ask you to consider the costs for the life of the pet before adoption. We recommend pet insurance.
