Meet Bert

Bert is a one year old male Mountain Cur/Hound Mix who weighs 32 pounds.  Bert is looking for a human who will be as dedicated to him as he will be to you.  He is affectionate and promises to eventually be your best friend, but he needs time to warm up. He has separation anxiety and likes to be with his humans.  He will do best with someone who is home most of the day and/or has another pet to keep him company.  Bert is frightened by new situations and until he feels comfortable, will initially try to escape by jumping over fences.   

A recent elderly ARF foster volunteer described Bert as the “best behaved dog I have ever seen.” However, Bert does not like to be left alone and will bark, cry, and try to escape.  His foster has been able to leave for a few hours when Bert has the company of another dog and free roam of a gated/enclosed large kitchen area.  Bert will do best with someone who is able and willing to work with him to help him gradually feel more comfortable when the humans are away.  In exchange, he will be a loving, loyal, life long companion.

Bert walks beautifully on a leash, and can live in an apartment as long as he is not left alone for long.  He will however, sometimes lung and bark at young children and dogs.  This behavior is improving.

Bert enjoys the company of other dogs.  Initially he may bark at another dog, but he has learned that wrestling and running with his 60 pound foster brother is fun.

Bert is house trained. He behaves well in the house and does not chew on human stuff if someone is home with him. He just likes to chill, cuddle, walk, and play.

Bert is looking for a special human to dedicate himself to - will it be you? 

Bert is micro-chipped, up to date on all vaccinations, housebroken and neutered.  His new family will be required to complete a basic obedience course of their choosing.

Bert's adoption fee is $350.  A meeting will not be scheduled until you have an approved application, so if you're interested in adopting this pup fill out an Online Application today!

Once your application has been approved, an ARF volunteer will contact you to arrange a meeting.

Bert is still available for adoption but might have other applicants. Learn more about our pet adoption process.

All pets adopted from A.R.F.-Animal Rescue Foundation include the following as part of their adoption fee:

  • Spay/neuter or a certificate for a low-cost spay/neuter when medically recommended
  • Microchip and registration, a permanent identification to reunite lost pets with their owners
  • Initial de-worming and flea and tick treatment
  • Age-appropriate testing for heartworm/FIV-FELV
  • Age-appropriate vaccines
  • Pre-adoption medical exam
  • A certificate for a free healthy pet exam at one of A.R.F.’s participating veterinarians within 7 days of adoption
  • Offer for a no-risk 30 day free trial with Trupanion pet medical insurance

If a cat or dog is on our website, it is still available for adoption but might have other applicants. If you find yourself interested in one of our animals, submit a no-commitment application immediately. Submitting an application does not commit you to any animal, but does get you a head start with the adoption approval process. Due to a high volume of applications, we are often unable to respond to questions until your application has been approved in approximately 3-5 business days.

We do not schedule meetings until you have an approved application.

A.R.F.-Animal Rescue Foundation does not have a facility where applicants can visit our animals.  The majority of our dogs and cats are brought to adoption events by our volunteers. We invite everyone to come to our events, but we give priority to pre-approved applicants.

If you’re invited to meet an animal:

  • Plan to arrive on time (or early), as we cannot hold animals for any reason.
  • All human household members and dogs (if adopting another dog), must be present in order to be considered as a potential adopter.

Thank you for your interest and cooperation!
