Meet Ernie

Pal's Place would love to introduce you to Ernie! Ernie and his brother, Bert, were rescued from an overburdened animal control facility in rural Kentucky. These perfect and precious brothers are estimated to be around 3.5-4 months old and weigh 35 pounds. Given their current weight and age, and anticipate a mature size of 60-75 pounds. Their breed mix is unknown, but their appearance suggests Boxer and German Shepherd somewhere in their family tree. Bert and Ernie are in a loving foster home in Chicago, waiting to meet their forever families. They are very friendly, social, energetic, and happy puppies and will make first-rate companions! Given their breed type, we expect they will mature to be energetic and intelligent dogs that will do best with active families. Please remember that puppies this age need frequent potty breaks (every 2-3 hours or so) and a generous amount of playtime during the day for the next several months, so please consider if you truly have the time for a puppy before applying.
Ernie and his littermate, Bert, are neutered, current with age-appropriate vaccines, microchipped, and started on flea and heartworm prevention. They are ready and anxious to meet their new families! The adoption fee to the rescue is $475
