ADOPTED ON  01-29-15 – Shaw is a 10 month old male 45lb Bernese Mountain Dog Black Lab Mix. He is neutered and up to date on all vaccinations. Shaw enjoys the company of other dogs. He is very submissive and will play with anyone large or small, he just wants to be their friend!  He enjoys running with his foster Mom’s other dogs in the fenced in yard, but he also likes lounging when he needs a break. Shaw is house broken and enjoys looking out the window while going for rides in the car.  He does excellent in the crate. He eats his food in his crate, and is also crated at night and when no one is home.

Shaw’s leash skills still need a bit of perfecting, as he is a young dog, but with a little bit of patience, positive encouragement, and consistency, we are confident Shaw will be able to conquer this. His foster mom says that although he still needs a little help with these skills, she is still able to walk him. Shaw is very friendly with people, but it is recommended that he not be placed with children under the age of 14. He was never exposed to small children when he was young, so their quick movements and noises make him very nervous. Shaw’s behavior with cats is unknown at this point in time. Being a typical puppy he does like to investigate new things, and will teeth on blankets and other items if no one is supervising him.

Shaw is such a cuddle bug and a sweetheart. He deserves a home with older family members where he can be one of the pack. He loves other dogs and it would be great if his new home had another dog or dogs to play with, but it is not a requirement. He has a moderate exercise level, so hikes or running are necessary to meet his needs. Bernese Mountain Dogs are known to be very cheerful and intelligent, combined with the loyalty and eagerness to please of a lab, Shaw sure is an awesome combo! Please fill out a application if you think Shaw sounds like the right match for you.

  • Always teach children how to approach and touch dogs
  • Always supervise any interactions between dogs and young children to prevent any biting or ear or tail pulling on the part of either party.
  • Teach your child never to approach any dog while he’s eating or sleeping or to try to take the dog’s food away. No dog, no matter how friendly, should ever be left unsupervised with a child.
  • Children need to be taught how to how to approach and touch dogs, and always supervise any interactions between dogs and young children.
  • No dog should ever be left unsupervised with a child because often-young children don’t understand that a cute little dog, or any dog, might not want “love and kisses.”
  • Never let young children pick up a puppy or small dog. Instead, make them sit on the floor with the dog in their lap. Pay attention to the dog’s body language, and put him safely in his crate if he appears to be unhappy or uncomfortable with the child’s attention.
  • Always teach children how to approach and touch dogs, and always supervise any interactions between dogs.
  • Teach your child never to approach any dog while he’s eating or sleeping or to try to take the dog’s food away. No dog should ever be left unsupervised with a child.
  • Be prepared dogs will protect themselves
  • Most important, it is your responsibility to make sure that your children and the dog are supervised at all times and safe. You cannot leave it up to the dog, the dog is an animal and will behave like an animal. They rely on us to guide and protect them, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
  • THIS IS YOUR JOB, NOT THE DOG
