Meet Bert

My name is Bert and I am a one year old male Mountain Cur Mix who weighs 32 pounds. I arrived with  my 2 siblings and am currently staying with my brother Petey. I am an affectionate guy who needs a home!  I promise to be your best friend after a day or two, but I need a little time to warm up. I like to be held and be with my foster family. I sometimes bark at people / dogs walking by. I stop this when asked but forget the next time. I am not aggressive towards people.  I am wary of new situations and children but be patient with me and I will love them too.

Petey and I sleep quietly all night next to my foster mom and wait for her to wake up to start our day. I am house trained and have not gone in my foster's house once. I do not chew or tear up things.

I walk beautifully on a leash, no pulling. I enjoy taking lots of long walks, maybe jog a little. I am a really good jumper, so if my home has a fence, it needs to be a tall one! Otherwise, my foster thinks I would do ok always walking/running on leash.

Petey and I love to play and cuddle together and would love to be adopted together!  We have stuck together for the past year and Petey likes me to protect him from imagined threats. Petey  is also very loving, just a little more shy.  Although I initially tried to scare the other dog in the home with my barking, I realize now wrestling and running with my 60 pound foster brother is fun too.

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.

More Info About Bert

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!
