Meet Vern

Vern is a beautiful heeler/ b.cx that is around 2 years old. He came in from another rescue group, was adopted and unfortunately had to be returned due to recent problems with a 2 year old in the home which is why he is listed as not good with children. However, the owner reported that he was always good with the 7 year old. He is not only stunning to look at but he is very intelligent and sweet. He knows basic commands and would do best in a steady, predictable home. He needs work on reactivity and some separation anxiety. Experience with high energy herding breeds will be given preference. He was "making extreme strides of progress" with the cat, kids and other dogs. However, this pup would really be the best fit as an only dog in a child-free home.
