Welcome Bert to the rescue! Big Bert found is way to us after coming into an emergency hospital for a pretty bad femur fracture that happened after rough housing with another large dog. His previous owners were unable to afford the surgery to have his leg repaired and possible euthanasia was on the table. We offered to take Bert in instead. Bert recently had his leg repaired and is in recovery. This was a major surgery and VERY expensive. We are in the process of raising funds to cover this bill.
Bert's previous owners were kind enough to give us information about him after he was surrendered. We are told that Bert does get along with other dogs but does play pretty rough. Because of this we recommend he go to a home with medium to large size dogs. He has lived with a cat. He is not aggressive with the cat but will chase her from time to time. He has lived with older kids 16 years and up and we would recommend this due to his size. He is potty trained and crate trained. Bert will be in a foster home with a cat and other dogs and we will update as we start to get to know him better.
In the mean time, he has a total of 8-16 weeks of recovery. We will not be accepting applications on Bert at this time. Bert also has a cherry eye that will be addressed, neutered and gastropexy performed once he is fully recovered from his leg surgery.
