Ernie was found as a stray, with another dog...yes Bert.

We thought perhaps they were bonded, but after holding them, looking for

the owner, and watching them closely, we feel they could be 

with or without each other. 

The shelter was able to tell us that Ernie was lost one other time and

the owner was contacted, and they had neutered him at that time.

They have contacted the owner this time too...but it appears that the 

owner who owned BOTH Bert and Ernie has moved, and

had given his dogs to someone else...and he doesn't

recall who...or where they lived.

He is not in a position to have them back, so both boys

are needing a place to call home.

Ernie is a Min Pin/Chihuahua mix (most likely)

He looks bigger in all the photos but he is approx. 12 lbs.

and according to the previous owner he is 7 yrs old.

 who is very affectionate and loves to play. 

He enjoys long walks and running with you.

  He enjoys LOTS of attention and love

and will snuggle with you on the couch. 

He is semi-potty trained, but will sometimes go number 2 inside if unsupervised

 Ernie does bark at humans and other dogs while out on walks,

but is not a biter and mostly quiet inside. 

He just likes to play the tough guy 😉

Ernie should be fine with another play mate..but not necessary.

He really would like to have human companionship and

cuddle time more than anything.

He will also bark at guests briefly, but warms up to them very quickly.

He is not a chewer or destructive in any way.

Beautiful coloring with brindle in his


He is ready for his forever pal to hang with.. and a place to call home.

All immunization shots, neuter and microchip has been done

Ernie's adoption fee is set at $240.00, UNLESS you are a senior.

Then Ernie and you qualify for our Senior to Senior program.

Ernie's adoption fee drops to $100. plus any shots we have in him,

not to exceed $175.
