Hi there! My name is Bernard, and I came to Ruff Start from Texas originally. Well, actually I’m still there! Since I haven’t arrived in Minnesota yet, I’m available only through Ruff Start’s Foster-to-Adopt (FTA) Program. I currently weigh 20lbs.

To learn more about the FTA program, please visit www.ruffstartrescue.org/adopt/fostering-to-adopt-available-animals/ .

I am a stately older gentleman, who is not comfortable around large dogs or cats, but I do enjoy little guys like me. I would love to be the only dog in the house. I love the ladies and am pretty chill and enjoy snuggling up beside you. I like both men and women, but not a fan of kids as one used to pull my ears in my former home. I am a very smart boy and a quick learner. I do fine in a crate but will bark a little initially. I am basically potty trained and have only had accidents when my fosters were not quick enough to get me outside. Overall, I am a sweet boy and would love to find a pleasant home to retire in. 

I arrive in Minnesota on 12/4 and will need to be picked up from the Ruff Start Rescue office in Princeton, MN. Once I get there, I might require further veterinary care. Ruff Start’s veterinary suite is in Princeton, MN, and, as my foster, it will require you to transport me to and from these vetting appointments.

To apply for this animal via our foster-to-adopt program, please submit an adoption application: www.ruffstartrescue.org/adopt/adoption-application/ .
