OLM Pet of the Week- Meet Bernard

This week we’re excited to introduce you to Bernard, a distinguished older gentleman with lots of love to give. Bernard is an 11-year-old Cocker Spaniel who doesn’t let his age stop him from having a little fun! This month marks his one year anniversary with Sit With Me rescue and we think it’s high time that he finds himself a cozy retirement home to spend his golden years in.

This lovable guy loves to go for strolls, rolling in the grass, and receiving belly rubs. Bernard greets everyone with super excited bum-wiggles and is not afraid to give many kisses to his favourite people. He is perfectly house-trained and is great around other dogs of any size as well as cats. He has an intense love for his people and because of that he does have some separation anxiety. He would do best in a home with people who are around more often as he tends to howl for a few minutes when left alone.


Due to a history of chronic ear infections, Bernard is a little deaf. He also lost his right eye last year to glaucoma, and has a cataract in his remaining eye. As a result, he tends to startle easy and would prefer a home with only adults or older children who know to approach him slowly as not to scare him. Despite limited hearing and vision, he is in great health and still loving life!

If you'd like to give Bernard the retirement home he deserves, email for more info!

About the Rescue:

Sit With Me Rescue is a foster-based rescue that helps dogs from local shelters. All of their dogs are adopted out spayed/neutered, heart worm tested, microchipped and have core vaccinations. Their adoption process involves an application, phone call and home visit prior to placement. They do their best to accommodate a trial adoption period and are committed to their dogs for their lifetime.

OLM Pet of the Week is a weekly segment on our site which showcases adoptable pets in our Capital. Each week a new pet will be featured in order to help them find a loving forever home.
