Sweet, sweet Bernie is located near Houston. This beautiful almost 80 pound, 7 year old lady came to DDB rescue in poor shape. She was poked and prodded multiple times over the course of her first few months. She had a rather rare tumorous growth removed from her left shoulder, had cancerous growths removed from her mammaries and was diagnosed heavy heartworm positive. All this, while being emaciated. Recovering well from surgery, she began eating really well, putting on weight and getting prepared for heartworm treatment. Through it all, Bernadette never lost her incredible spirit or her will to live. Tail in constant motion, Bernadette always greets her foster parents with a smile and a hand shake. Her love for humans is incredible. She would love nothing better than to be a lap dog. Like all dogues, she has a stubborn streak that sometimes tries your patience but as you get to know and love her, that streak just dissolves into her overall personality. Bernadette loves to play in the water hose, lay in her wading pool and rough house with her best friend, Howard (another dogue available through DDB rescue). She can not be near cats; she will kill them. She has not spent any time with any other dogs except her pups she came with and Howard. She has been around farm animals and she displays her nurturing, mother like personality. Bernadette will make a wonderful companion for someone that loves to snuggle and is pretty much a home body. Her social skills are not what they should be.
Because she almost died when her fist heartworm treatment was administered, she won’t be getting the final treatment. She will stay on preventative (which she would be on anyway) until she gets a negative blood result. She displays no heartworm related symptoms at all.
