Meet Bert

Bert is an 18-month-old, 32 pound Terrier/Mountain Cur Mix who needs peace, love, and understanding. Bert is frightened by new situations and shows it by staying away and barking. But once he feels safe, Bert will love cozying up on the couch with you and promises to be your best friend. He has separation anxiety and will do best with someone who is home most of the day and/or has another dog to keep him company. Bert wouldn’t mind keeping an older person or dog company, as he is not overly active.

An ARF foster volunteer described Bert as the “best behaved dog I have ever seen.” He sits on command, comes when called, and walks beautifully on a leash. However, Bert is leash reactive towards other dogs. Fortunately, he is a manageable size. A quieter home would be best, as Bert will also alert you to any stranger coming to the door.

Bert is house trained, behaves well in the house, and does not chew on human stuff if supervised. He just wants to chill, cuddle, walk, and occasionally play. He needs a patient, calm, and understanding person who accepts his rather anxious personality.

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!
