Available Dogs arrow ERNIE (24-001)

ERNIE (24-001) is a sweet 65lb, 3-year-old boy who is looking for his Forever Home. With time and structure, he has learned to be a wonderful house guest and is also crate-trained. Ernie likes to play with his toys and will happily gnaw on a dog chew for hours. He loves doing zoomies with his furry foster sister to get some of his energy out, and he also enjoys puttering about in the yard, watching the world pass by, and then coming into the house for a cuddle. After some good exercise, Ernie is a quiet, laid-back dog who seldom barks. He knows all the basic commands but he needs work on mannerly leash-walking. He will sit and wait patiently for his food or when someone comes to the door.

He is friendly with visitors and greets everyone with a wiggly butt and a few circles. He sleeps all night on his bed in our room, together with his foster sister. He gets along with other dogs and all the humans he meets. He is unknown with cats. Although he enjoys his foster sister’s company, he would also do well as an only dog. The one thing that Ernie needs most is a calm household. He had an incident in his former home where there was a gathering of too many people and too much going on, so an adult-only home, or a home with older teenage kids would be best. Ernie is a handsome, friendly chap. He likes to ride in the car and he is a favorite at the vet’s office. Ernie is waiting to meet his new family who will have a fenced yard and be willing to continue with his leash training, with lots of love to give to this beautiful, young golden.
