He’s a very loving, energetic and intelligent dog, with a black and tan short shiny coat. Bernie learns quickly and just wants cuddles all the time. Hes a bundle of goofy fun and hes playful, energetic, sweet, beautiful and obedient. He’s a very friendly and loving dog with the most beautiful face and kindest eyes.
Bernie was found near the Portuguese shelter one day, his claws were so worn down they were bleeding. He was taken to the vet who fell in love with him, unfortunately her German Shepherd did not like Bernie at all, so she was unable to adopt him.

For Rescue Dogs coming from overseas
This adoption fee is a contribution towards the costs of rescuing the dog including
– microchip, pet passport, vaccines, tests for South European diseases, neutering (IF OLD ENOUGH), parasite treatment and transport to the UK.
We can not home dogs from overseas to people who work full time or long hours, unless some sort of doggy day care is offered. They need someone at home a lot of the day, they are not used to being alone for long periods. A dog walker for an hour out of the day is not enough.
Leaving dogs a long time on their own means they are highly likely to develop separation anxiety which is distressing for them and everyone in their new home.
