Female – 2 months old

Hello! I’m Bernadette, or "Bernie," it's nice to meet you!

I have a beautiful black coat and a perfectly placed white patch in the shape of a star on my chest!

I have 2 human foster sisters – they are 4 & 5 – and boy, oh boy, do I love to play with them! Foster mom says I’m absolutely amazing with them. I follow them all around the house and want to be involved in whatever they are doing. I like playing tug of war and keep away with them but my favorite part of the day is snuggling up with them on the couch.

And I have animal foster-siblings as well! My kitty foster sister is just my size. I think she would be the perfect playmate, but so far she isn’t too fond of my tactics to become BFF’s. My puppy foster sister is a SAB Alumni! She is a 1 ½ year old English Bulldog/Collie/Heeler mix and we L-O-V-E to play: I like to play dead and then jump up and pounce on her when she least expects it. I am mostly submissive, but I know how to stand my ground too!

I am super smart and super duper trainable. Plus, look at my face — I mean, how can you resist? I am working on potty training, and am quickly getting the hang of going to the door to let the humans know I’ve got to go! I’m also rocking it in my crate so far and sleep there quietly at night.

My dream family would be active with a playmate of some sort – human or furry, I love them all!
