Ernie is a real playful sweetheart, he is very gentle and loves his humans. He is very smart, and learns new things quickly. He enjoys being active and also loves to snuggle. He is great on leash but reacts when he sees other animals. He has not been kennelled for a considerable amount of time and would need lots of support to rebuild this skill. Ernie really just wants to be close to his family.
“I do require a special home to adopt me as I do have some anxiety and require a home that will show me unconditional patience and love. I need to find my person who will help me calm down and feel safe.”
Ernie is currently available for adoption. Applications can be found here.
