I’ve always liked the look of Bertie but never taken him out before and he didn’t disappoint. He’s far gentler than you might imagine and walks so well, not pulling on his lead a great deal and not in the slightest bit dog reactive from my experience.
I think it’s obvious he’s from a loving home and his family must have been heartbroken to have had to give him up.
He’s another one who likes a dip but his swimming leaves a little to be desired – he’s more drowning than swimming and managed to soak me in the process.
Always difficult to decide a favourite dog when there are so many beauties, but he’s right up there.
I’ve added a couple of pictures but they are nothing like as good as some on here.

Bertie is a gorgeous dog - size of a British bulldog, soft Mastiff face with white tiger stripes allover love4.gif

Bertie can be excitable in his kennel but when you enter you are greeted by a happy soft boy keen for his walk! We went for a lovely walk on Wednesday with several dips in the river. He can be headstrong sometimes - pushing his head through gates (before he knows the gate opens in the direction he's pushing!) or jumping into the river (before checking how deep it is!), but he is very responsive on the lead and to me as his walker and he brings a smile to my face.

As it was quite warm, we found a nice cool spot on the grass for some chill out time together. Bertie is a lovely dog, who no doubt misses having a family of his own. If you love a bully breed, then you will be won over by this gorgeous lump love4.gif

I took Bertie for his weekend break from kennels.
We started our adventure from a walk to ease his excitement of being out of kennels and than we came to the car. As soon as I opened the boot Bertie was in blob6.gif] , he made himself comfortable there and travelled calmly home. When we arrived he explored the garden and the house, and it took a good half an hour for him to settle, but I think the pigs ear helped a lot blob6.gif] woo.gif]
We had a calm Friday exploring fields. Bertie is very responsive on the lead and comes back each time you call him. We also met a nice man with a rescue dog and Bertie was sitting calmly next to me while we talked. Bertie is house trained so slept nicely all night and woke up with us and waited patiently for me to get ready for our morning walk.
Saturday late morning was a bit more exciting as we went to the stable to meet horses.
Bertie was very interested in them, but still listened to my commend to sit and he was looking at them without any pulling.
During the day we stayed home as it was really hot, and Bertie kept me busy asking for playing with the pillow, ball and a squeaky toy. He is so sweet, leaving the toy on my lap and waiting for me to start playing with him.
We enjoyed our company very much during his break and as much as I believe his new family is close to find him, I will give Bertie a break from his kennels life again love4.gif

Bertie and I had a relaxing walk through the woods today. When we got back he was keen to make friends with a new walker and leapt up on the bench next to him!

Bertie came for a weekend break from kennels and we had a superb time together blob6.gif] As the weather was fantastic for long walks, we spent plenty of time walking around Frencham ponds and Bertie loved it love4.gif
We met three dogs off the lead, where one of them a Jack Russell Terrier was a bit unfriendly and guess what ? Bertie just ignored him and walked away ! The other 2 dogs, size of Bertie - he was playing with them like a puppy while making me so relieved as a dog off the lead may be trouble thumbs.gif
He is truly amazing !!! Don't understand why he is still in kennels :dog_running-186.gif:
But there is more weekend breaks for him planned so watch the space blob6.gif] blob6.gif] blob6.gif] blob6.gif] blob6.gif]

Bertie is such a sound all round dog , He grew up in a home so has learnt excellent manners , He meets and greets people like long lost friends.
He walks very well with kennel friends and made new girl Marge feel right at home , they fell in tune with each other walked side by side I forgot they had only just met.
He will give you so much back and be a loyal dependable friend .

Bertie came for another weekend break from kennels and we had more walks in stable fields looking at horses and Frencham Little Pond thumbs.gif He was braver than the last time and let himself to check on each bush we passed by blob6.gif]
We met a lot of dogs : big, small friendly and not .... Bertie was amazing with his tail waving and ready to play with each dog love4.gif love4.gif love4.gif
Someone asked if Bertie is good with kids. I would say that with the child like 5+ he would be a great companion as he loves to play blob6.gif] He is a big boy but really gentle and doesn't pull much when playing thumbs.gif
He is such a loving and trusting boy love4.gif I really hope he will find his home very soon love4.gif
