Bert is such a happy fellow, always smiling! He meets visitors easily. He is really curious about dogs (or deer) walking down the street. He has learned to sit on command, and his fosters are working on "stay." He's house-trained, and he usually sleeps through the night. He would really prefer to sit on the couch with his fosters and watch TV, but he takes up the whole couch, so they insist he sit on the floor. He loves his tennis ball and is learning to retrieve it, and maybe he'll someday drop it. Come meet this sweet boy. He could use a running buddy - or a couch buddy!
