From Concerned Citizens for Animals, Greenville, SC:
Bernie was found in bad shape. He had cuts, scrapes, scratches and scabs all over him, not to mention he was horribly thin weighing in at only 52 lbs when he should be 70. He is a Bernese Mountain dog/German Shepherd mix. He is incredibly friendly now that he understands people FEED him! He is about 2 years old and all boy. He is VERY smart – just look at those intelligent eyes – and will be trainable by someone with a patient hand. Bernie is looking for a home. He has been living at a vet's clinic in Clemson for over two month while getting TLC and gaining some weight. It's time he gets to live in a home with lots of attention and someone to teach him how to be man's best friend (or woman's!). He is UTD on vaccinations, dewormed, microchipped and neutered.
