Meet Ernie 

This sweet hound pup is only about 8 months old.

Ernie’s favorite things, in order, are - playing, meeting people, playing, chasing toys, playing, and chasing squirrels. If your yard has a squirrel problem Earnie would love to take care of that for you! And did we mention he likes to play? This ball of energy is a super fun playmate, he might even do well with a doggy brother or sister to help him burn off some energy.

True to his hound dog heritage, Ernie is a real stop and smell the… well… everything, kind of guy. Nothing can distract him from experiencing the world through smell, unless he sees a squirrel of course.

When all the smells have been smelled, and all the toys have been played with, Ernie loves to cuddle up to his humans and say thank you for a fun day!

The only thing this loving boy doesn’t have is his Bert!  If you think you could be the Bert to this Ernie please fill out an application at you have any questions about Ernie email
