Special Adoption Considerations: Ernest is a shy guy and is looking for a home with a doggie sibling to show him the ropes and help him become the confident pup he knows he can be!

Meet Ernest! This sweet 1  1/2 year old, 45-50 lb, shepherd mix is looking for his forever home and hopes it is with you!

Ernest is a curious and energetic 1 1/2 year old and is looking for someone who will take him on long walks and to obedience training to learn how to be a well-behaved confident adult dog. Fittingly named, he's a bit shy and is really looking forward to making friends in the neighborhood. He heard forever homes come with warm beds, lots of treats, toys and LOTS of belly rubs and he really can't wait to find out how that feels. 

Though out of the crazy puppy stages, Ernest is still a young, active and curious pup who will need mental and physical stimulation on a daily basis. Right now he'd prefer a home with older children and we haven't had a chance to see him interact with cats yet, but his friends at Lucky Dog are happy to find out for you!

Like most shelter dogs, Ernest may need a refresher on housetraining. He is likely crate trained.

The adoption fee for this dog is $350, which includes the cost of routine vetting, including vaccinations and spay/neuter. If you are interested in adopting, please download our Adoption Questionnaire and email it to Colleen at!
