Pet of the Week

“Nice to meet ya, I’m Ernest! First things first, I love you already and we haven’t even met! That’s because I love everyone, and they love me too! Because I’m potty trained, love hiking and playing fetch, and I know all the tricks, including sit, lay down, stay, jump, shake, speak and my favorite trick of all… hug! Don’t let my age fool you — I have all the energy and all the love left to last a lifetime! I’m pretty much perfect! I’ll love you until the end of time. Being at the shelter vs. being in a home of my own is more stressful for me than other dogs, so I’m hoping to get out of this joint soon. So come and get me! And let’s be the best thing that ever happened to each other!”
