Dearest People of The Human Race. My name is Bernard and I’m a 2 year old mix of Grand Bleu De Gascogne Hound. Humans have not been kind to me. I was run as a “tool of the trade” as a hunting dog in Northern Spain and when the season was over I was thrown in Mouga perrera. (City pound) It’s so cold and we get hosed out every day with cold water. I’m just a young lad and Iv done nothing wrong. I did my best but I’m not really a good hunter – I didn’t want to do it so firstly they starved me in a bid to make me chase rabbits and when that didn’t work they got rid of me.
I’m a good boy. I’m gentle but fun and Iv been tested with cats and they don’t bother me at all.
I’m happy with children over 8 who can understand my needs and when to leave me alone if I’m eating or sleeping. I’d like a home with a safe garden so I have space to learn to play fetch and ball as all young dogs should be allowed too. I’d also like my new owners to have some knowledge of basic training or to take me to older pup classes so I can fulfill my good dog potential – I have lots to give you.
My breed is intelligent and rooted in centuries old lineage of french Grand Bleu De Gascogne. If anything I’m off Petit lines as I’m smaller. They tell me you are a nation of dog lovers. I believe this is the reason I now have what is called a rescue group. My Aunty Carolyn is now working hard to find me a good home. Please don’t make me wait long – I’m so excited thinking about my new life. I’m keeping my paws crossed.
Aunty C has many many wonderful adoptions under her belt and provides support both before and after my adoption. She will also make sure I’m neutered, blood tested, flea and tick treated, wormed, chipped and passported for travel to UK. My group need you to complete an application form, have a Homecheck and pay a fee.
If you have a Bernard shaped hole in your heart – I’m right over here just waiting to fill it.
