Ernie is an eight to nine year old medium sized crossbreed. He has come to us after spending several years in the Botosani public shelter in Romania. Despite being devoid of human contact for so long Ernie is a sweet and affectionate boy who is adapting beautifully to his UK life.
He is initially a little cautious of new people but if he is allowed time to get to know them without being crowded by them he soon becomes their best friend (food also helps) Ernie enjoys gentle walks and feeling the grass beneath his feet after so many years purely on concrete. Ernie fostered Norwich Norfolk.
After arriving on our care Ernie developed a condition in one of his eyes, possibly due to past trauma, which eventually resulted in him having to have the eye removed. Being blind in that eye makes him a little more cautious of his movement and he really needs an adult only, steady home environment.
Ernie is a quiet boy who is happy to sleep away a few hours if left home alone. He gets on well with other dogs but we do not want him to go with young boisterous dogs that will jump all over him in his twilight years. As with most of our oldies all we want for him is a quiet home environment with all the home comforts he has been deprived of for so long.
For the first time in his life he can relax and sleep peacefully knowing nothing is going to kick off while he rests.
