BERTA NEEDS A HOME!Hi! I'm Berta, and I am one happy girl! The main question on my mind at any given time is, 'Who's going to pet my belly next?' Once upon a time, I used to have a family, but they just didn't want me anymore. Their loss, my gain, because I'm intending to start a new life with the best of everything. I have been described as a complete 'ham'. That doesn't mean that I'm part pig, but rather that I am always smiling and make others smile, too. I am a 'hard body' (about 60 pounds of pure muscle), but have a soft heart and love getting belly rubs, being petted and told that I'm a good girl. I love people a whole bunch: so much so that I would prefer if I had a human family all to myself. No feline or canine siblings, that is. And I'd do better in a home without really small kiddos, because if they get rowdy, it makes me nervous. I have a laid-back outlook on life, so you're not going to have to invest a whole lot of time in exercising me. I'm happy to just hang out and snooze while you read or do housework. I do need a family that is going to build my confidence, because I'm a little insecure. When my human friends make me sit for treats or food, I do it willingly and it makes me feel confident and safe because I know who's in charge and I'm comfortable in my 'nitch'. I am spayed, have all of my vaccines, have been started on flea/tick and heartworm preventative, and am microchipped. I hope you're looking for a tough-exterior, soft-hearted girl for your next canine friend, because that's me!
