I had been looking for a dog for awhile on Petfinder. All the dogs I was interested in were either pending adoption or had already been adopted. I found Bertie (then named Bessie Boo) and she was a "special needs" girl because of an eye issue. I went to the rescue and she was so sweet and friendly. I adopted her and we bonded instantly....she may be a little TOO bonded to me! I am more of a cat person but she has worked her way into my heart. She's super sweet and great with my 2 cats. She has no vision issues with her eye and was successfully treated for heartworm disease. I can't imagine life without her now and I'm so glad I found her!
